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.

One of the most impressive things I’ve seen in Hong Kong! For me even more amazing then Big Buddha. It’s a short walk uphills to the temple and the whole road is edged by thousands of golden Buddha statues in life-size! The road is quite...More

It's a little out of the way but a must do when in Hong Kong. The closest metro was Sha Tin and it was a short walk from the station. There's a temple nearby which was quite nice too. It's a bit of a hike...More

Hard part is the walking up the stairs but worth it at the end!! Be aware if monkeys so keep your bags close to you, apart from the steep walk up the steps very peaceful when you get up and very picturesque.

Located a bit off the beaten track, the closest MTR is Sha Tin and then a 5-10 min walk away. At the entrance there are plenty of posters warning you of fake monks asking you for money. There are a lot of stairs and we...More

This is a 'must see' monastery. Mostly local tourism. Worth the climb up the hill. Also visit the other temples on the same hill.

We took a train from Hong Kong Central Station, then a short walk. Then up you go, with Buddhas lining the way, all different other than being gold. The views from the top are tremendous, and all the Buddhas will fill you with awe. Be...More

Not easy to find - and not helped by the fact that there are two different ways up to it. One is past the Government buildings, and you very quickly start to see statues of Buddha alongside the path (so you know that you are...More

We had read about the long stair climb and we began to climb stairs as soon as we saw them. However, there is a cemetery adjacent to this place and not a lot of signs so we made the wrong climb only to eventually realize...More

You go to the ShaTin stop! (I believe it's the baby blue line). There is no entrance fee :)
