This is an excellent place to take a break from the noise and crowds of the city. It is nice for a peaceful walk and meditation. I particularly like the gift shop, too. Although the gift shop has a lot of religious materials, it also sells very beautiful hand-painted porcelain and Chinese ink paintings. Even if you are not very... More

Tao Fung Shan is a Christian Church in Shatin. The church was built in the early 20th century in Chinese architecture style designed by a Scandinavian architect. Interesting mix of East and West. Jesus was depicted in Chinese style wearing Chinese clothes.

It is very close to Shatin station but not noticed by most people. It takes around 30 minutes to hike up, not too bad if you are used to hiking, you would reach this special place. It is nothing like any other Christian places. It has the style of Taoism, even the praying place - the church! There is also... More

This is a beautiful place in the middle of Hong Kong. It's definitely an amazing place to visit in your New Territories excursions. (Personally, I think this is much better than the Ten Thousand Buddhas which is more like a tourist amusement park). Remember to check out their website first to learn about their Labyrinth and the history of the... More

Tao Fung Shan is set on a forested hill above Shatin, with beautiful views all around. It consists of a series of buildings and courtyards built in traditional Chinese style. It was set up in 1930 by a Norwegian missionary who had studied Buddhism deeply and wanted to interpret Christianity into Chinese culture. The beautifully-proportioned and decorated buildings, natural surroundings... More

Tao Fung Shan is a Christian church in Shatin Hong Kong. Its Christian construction in traditional Chinese style is quite interesting. We do not expect it is kept in such a good condition. It is a nice place for photo-taking. If the weather is fine, it will be fantastic. We are impressed by the special Chinese design with bright red... More
