Close to the MTR station. A good place to start your day early. Make sure to get there before 5pm. A small temple compared to the others this is a quick stop. But very spectacular temple and the golden statue of the Buddha is very good.

Well organised, beautifully maintained and definitely worth a visit. Remember to take a bag to put your shoes in while you walk round.

You will walk up several steps so come with comfy shoes. Once on top, you will take off your shoes and leave them on rack. Keep in mind there is a possibility of your shoes missing once you are out of the temple. Keep them inside your purse or backpack. Also, the crowd arrives around 8:30 am or so. It then becomes difficulty to take good pictures without tourist in the backgournd.
