  • This is my favorite Temple/Monastery in Hong Kong! It's beautiful! I like the hike up as it feels like you're working for your reward. I also love the Wild Long-tailed Macques! I saw a baby macque! Aw...  more »
  • For the Dutch here. Who is the Mol 2014 game and location. Google but for more info. This is a must. It is well hidden but once you think it has found a lot of fun. There were a lot of 50 in maintenance but there were still a lot. Once above you have a beautiful view and can see more things. Looks all very peaceful and not too touristy when we were there. Walk down the MTR and walk along the shopping centre to the left of the building. Turn right again and follow the cars to the parking garage and past the building of government office building. At the end of the street you walk to the start.

  • 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!
