A steep climb to reach, but efforts are rewarded with over 12,000 Buddhas both outside and inside the temple. There is no admission fee. A small restaurant at the top offers refreshments, but bring your own water for the trail.

It's a bit of a climb to get up here but it is well worth the walk. You can take it at your own pace so there is no rush.

Amazing to see all the statues, unfortunately you aren't allowed to take pictures, would recommend people go a see for themselves.

It’s super easy to get to. Take the MRT to Sha Tin on the light blue line. Exit to the bus area, and head hard left and down the walkway. You will pass a small park with flower stalls, and when you see a fenced...More

Take the Train to Sha Tin and it is about a 5-10 min walk to this location. It was a hidden gem. You should see the ICAC building. The entrance is located at the end of the block almost like you reached a dead end....More

It was located right near the train station and shopping centre. We had trouble finding the monastery as there is only a small sign right next door to the cemetery. Be prepared to walk up a lot of stairs but when you do make it,...More

This place looked like it had seen better days. Some of the buddhas were damaged (most likely from the typhoon that blew threw a week or two before we visited), with others worn down from years of exposure to the elements. Saying that, it was...More

This is pretty impressive, although bear in mind the following- don't go up the posh path with an escalator, that takes you up a hill to the Po Fook Hill Ancestral Halls. for me, these are not worth the climb. The path to the Buddhas...More

The path is paved, however, it is quite steep in places. Also, if you’re going now, it will be extraordinarily hot and humid. Personally, there are a lot of more suitable places to take your 10 month-old in HK.
