Open to public and free admission, Jao Tsung-I Academy is a landscaped historical centre with focus on culture and calligraphy. It is conveniently located just up the hill from the residential area at Mei Foo MTR Station (Exit B). It is like a hub of Chinese arts and culture that has impressed me with a feeling of peace and silence. There are theatre, lecture hall, workshop, conference room, and exhibition halls with guided tours for groups and individuals. Not many tourists know about or interested in visiting this place. It is a place mainly visited by local academic study groups for focus study or attending lectures or conferences. Aiming to explore more about arts and culture, I got an insight of the art of Chinese calligraphy after viewing the displays in the gallery. The small lotus pond and the Bronze Statue of Jao Tsung-i are good spots for taking photos. Had a cup of coffee at the cafe gave me a relax time to enjoy the peacefulness there. At the higher zone of the hill is a heritage lodge that I had not explored. It looked like a retreat hotel.
