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.

This place is nice. I don't know if it was worth it to me to walk up to the actual Monastary, but it was a nice place to visit. So if you see lots of steps and long escalators that don't work, that's not the...More

It was 35 degrees so the walk up the path, climbing the stairs was challenging but it was also brilliant, between a "guard of honour" of Buddhas, up the mountain / hill. I only did the section with the male Buddhas due to the heat...More

This is one of the must see spots in Hong Kong. It is the ten thousand buddhas monastery, and a cultural treasure for Hong Kong.

You'd think, surly not ten thousand Buddhas in this hall, but there would be if you could count them all. In the intricately decorated hall, full of colour and gold, there are thousands of Buddha statues in a few different sizes. You are not allowed...More

Well worth the climb even on a very hot humid day, bring water and if you ran out you do have a little cafe on the very top where you can get something to drink and eat. It was fascinating to see golden statues in...More

Stunning place - take your time, relax and enjoy it. Very different. We were lucky with great weather on our stay which showed off the sights to their best.

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.
