Must see place in Shenzhen

Good experience to see the old Zen living place and Great Buddha statue. You can get the Buddha statues, and king of china statue and some old ornaments.

Authentic temple full of people worshipping. Beautiful surroundings and scenery. Will not find a place like this anywhere else. Difficult to fit it all in one day. Great walk with friends

We had a good time walking to Hongfa temple. It takes less than an hour from the entrance gates of the garden. Tickets cost 20Rmb and you can visit the different parts of the garden as well as the temple. We got excellent food at the temple around noon. There are different prayer spots, a library, and a museum to... More

This temple is located in Xianhu Botanical Park, about a 20 minute cab ride from Luoho in central Shenzhen. You can get a cab to the park gate, buy your ticket then either walk through the park (30 mins) to the temple or take a shuttle bus. Shenzhen, being a new city, is a little short on temples etc. but... More

It isn't very convenient to get to the botanical garden and temple. The temple itself is very big and modern. Nothing mind blowing, but not bad.

I walked to the temple but would recommend that you take the bus that is available. I do not know what the cost is but the walk was long and I walked it in the middle of the day when it was hot and did not take any water with me. But there are places where you can buy water... More

Even though I’m a business traveler, I try to make some personal time to explore local culture. Thankfully I was able to carve out a few hours late one afternoon to visit Hongfa Temple. Prior to this, I had no idea how beautiful Shenzhen could be. You will feel like you are in another world as you explore this temple... More

This Buddhist temple is quite new, having been built in the 1990's as part of China's restoration of its culutural heritage. I love the park, and have been there several times. It's on the side of Wutongshan, the biggest mountain in the area. Whether you're coming for religious purposes or simple want to spend a day in a beautiful natural... More
