Well worth a look, not easy to find either, but once you are there you feel as though you are in a Bond film. Watch out for the sneaky guys dressed up as monks at the entrance. They are not real and are just waiting for the next tourists to part with cash. Look out for the monkeys up the... More

Nice place but a lot of steps to get to there. Maybe as much steps as buddha's :-) Worth to see but not to spend more then 1 hour. Can be quite hot to get there with all the steps, don't forget some water.

Ok maybe choosing a summer Sunday w 3 kids aged 3,6&7 to climb hundreds of steps was not the best of decisions. Summary: - hot, crowded w people n mosquitoes - yes loads of Buddhas but which looked too kitsch for our liking - cafe up there served one of the worst Chinese teas we've ever had - confusing to...

Visited this today and was really impressed by the colours and detail. The site was well designed and the renewal process is in full flow. This is a good escape from the frenetic rush that is Hong Kong Island and Kowloon.

After a long climb up to the monastery the trek was well worth it. The temple and shrines were magnificent and the restoration work is ongoing to make it even better in the future. The spring rolls in the café/restaurant were tasty and cheap.

This was absolutely worth the climb (which takes about 25 minutes and is up a steep hill - wear comfortable shoes and take water). The entrance is up a small laneway just behind the large mall. After ascending a pathway lined with unique golden Buddha statues you reach a wonderful oasis at the top. Find a quiet corner, breath in... More

My cousin lives in Hong Kong, so as we were only had a couple of days in there we had a fast track tour of it. I didn't know what to expect as I hadn't heard about the monastery and it was a pleasant surprise. All the Buddhas had different expressions and the walk up lovely. It wasn't busy in... More
