The Ngong Ping Cable Car began as the Tung Chung Cable Car Project in 2004. It is part of a larger tourism initiative on Lantau Island in Hong Kong.

Rebranded in 2005, the BDG system opened in 2006 to carry passengers from the city to Ngong Ping Village. Riders can choose between the standard cable cars or, for an additional fare, the VIP “Crystal Cabins,” complete with glass floors.
