Slightly creepy (the faces of the statues) yet interesting and very sweaty (climbing all those stairs, good excercise)! Our guide knew to tell lots of history and facts about this place and Hong Kong in general.

So much handcraft work and history in this temple. The mystic atmosphere is so unique. Should always pay a visit when in Hong Kong.

About a 300 step climb but worth the walk up as the view from the top is breathtaking. Some souvenir shops are around when you get to the top if interested in buying stuff.

The cable car was not working when I went so I got a replacement bus up and down but it should be back by now. It is only a short walk from Tung Chung on the MTR. Well worth a visit.

Hi Kelly, we did ours as a day tour and got picked up from the hotel. But the airport train was reasonably priced and very quick so would be a good option.
