These cable cars make getting from here to there a scenic, adrenaline-pumping adventure.

Ngong Ping 360, Hong Kong

18 of 17

Hong Kong’s cableway isn’t for the faint of heart. To start, the 3.5-mile long bi-cable gondola makes a hard turn on Airport Island before gliding for what seems like forever (almost a mile) over the shimmering Tung Chung Bay and upward into the lush mountains of Lantau Island. The one-way trip takes about 25 minutes, offering bird’s-eye views of the South China Sea and national park. True thrill-seekers will want to splurge on the glass-floored Crystal Cabins. Once safely in touristy Ngong Ping Village, count your blessings at the Po Lin Monastery and giant Tian Tan Buddha statue, then see how your ride measures up at a museum of cable car replicas from around the world. np360.com.hk
