HIDDEN GEM IN HONG KONG. MUST SEE!

This one is quite a trek. You'd have to venture out of the busy city and go up a lot of stairs to get there. I'm not talking 20 steps. Not even 50. A LOT MEANS A LOT so if you're... read more

Steeped in religious history and many opportunities to enjoy and see the Monk way of life, everything from Monk's to sacred cows roaming the streets.

Not sure if there are really 10,000 Buddhas there but there are certainly alot of them. It's quite a long haul up steps to the very top section of the temple so bear that in mind, quite steep too so not realy wheelchair friendly. Nice views, plants and buidlings as well as history of how the monastery came into being.

You should take at least 2-3 hours time for this. On Hongkongextras com there's a great explanation with pictures on how to find the entry. Exit B at the MTR, follow the signs for Sha Tin government buildings. There are no signs at the MTR as reportedly the steps and general condition of the site are not sufficient to be... More

The path is very long and high, but it's worth it. The decoration inside the main hall is stunning! Unfortunately, taking photo inside is prohibited. You can also see the view of the city from the top of the place too.

It was a viewing pleasure to walk amidst the ten thousand Buddhas on both sides of the long stairway. Prayed and bought some souvenirs at the top. It's a must visit if you have the strength and time.

This is an easy location to get to from down town (using the MTR), and well worth the climb to the top!

Leave MTR at exit B and follow signs to Sha Tin Government Offices. Turn right when you see the parking sign and you will see a multi storey on your right hand side in the top corner of this dead end. The entrance is on the opposite side (left hand side) down a small paved path, surrounded by fairly high... More

Visit in the morning not to get too much sun. Take water because there are more than 430 steps to climb to the top of the monastery. And the best: you pay nothing to visit it.
