Tai O is a fishing village on stilts on the western coast of Lantau Island. In the nearby mountains—and only a 15-minute cab ride away—is Big Buddha, or the Tian Tan Buddha statue. To reach the 34-metre-high bronze Buddha, you have to walk up 268 steps. If you start questioning whether you’ll reach the top, remember what Buddha said: “What comes easy won’t last. What lasts won’t come easy.” This page: Top, $1,710, and skirt, $1,560, Fendi. Shoes, $830, Stella McCartney. Bag, $3,775, Chanel. Opposite page: Top, $55, Nike. Skirt, $785, Christopher Kane.
