Hong Kong's latest attraction, the Ngong Ping 360 Skyrail

The Ngong Ping '360' Skyrail is a giant cable car that runs between the village of Ngong Ping and Tung Chung town centre on Lantau Island, a distance of just under 6km. It officially opened on September 18th 2006 after a number of delays and has suffered a series of technical glitches but is proving to be a popular attraction.

With views of the big Buddha and the airport, it looks like it could be spectacular ride (as long as the weather's fine). Apparently it's a fast way to travel too, as the ride takes about 25 mins and the same journey by road takes about an hour.
