  • If you're in for a good exercise and it's a cool day, this is a great excursion well outside the hustle and bustle of the Island or Kowloon. It's a really nice, sometimes-shaded pathway up the hill.....  more »

  • Great walk to the temple surrounded by multiple facettes of the Buddha. The temple offers a beautiful view and a nice calming atmosphere. A great getaway from the dazzling city.
  • A very nice and unique experience! The climb to the top can be a but cumbersome but definitely doable! Fascinating to see each individual Buddha on the way up. You get a really nice view of the surroundings when you reach the top. Some cute monkeys run around in the area as well.
  • One of the rarely seen well-furnished religious attractions in Hong Kong. There are numerous Buddha golden statues on the way climbing up to the main entrance of the Monastery. If you could read Chinese, it is recommended to read the poems and writings besides the golden Buddha statues as they involve a lot of Buddhism philosophical ideas. Have to pay attention to wild monkeys which may become aggressive if you have food in your hands.
  • One of the best places I have been. It's a nice climb and through out the climb you find lots of statues. Well maintained. The temple is very nice and peaceful.
  • Close to the metro, beautiful hike up the stairs with tons of buddha sculptures, and a gorgeous temple at the top. It's a very touristy area but still worth the trip. Get some bubble tea at the shop across the highway!
