Ngong Ping 360 main terminus is located at Tung Chung Town Centre, a shopping mall on Lantau Island. The upper Ngong Ping 360 terminus is located at Ngong Ping Village and much harder to reach. Almost everyone takes the cable car from Tung Chung Town Centre.
The easiest way to reach the Ngong Ping Tung Chung Terminal is via MTR. The Tung Chung line (Orange) runs from both Hong Kong Station and Kowloon station straight to Tung Chung Town Centre. Journey time from Central (Hong Kong Station) is around thirty minutes. Once at Tung Chung, the Cable Car Terminal can be reached through exit B of the MTR.
The only reason you would not want to use the MTR, is if you have arrived to the airport and plan of travelling directly to the Ngong Ping. In this case, take a blue Lantau taxi, which should cost around HK$30 for the ten minute journey.
If you decide you would like to start your journey at Ngong Ping Village, the Number 23 bus from Tung Chung Town Centre, or the Number 11 from Tai O Ferry Pier will take you there.
