Bonjour! Today is the 6th day of our holiday in Hong Kong. Not sure it’s day 5th or 6th, we arrived here on Wednesday and today is Monday. How to count???
Anyway, it’s the holiday. As I said on the last blog, Places to see in Hong Kong: You will never walk alone, it’s the time to kill our legs. Living in a holiday city likes Pattaya, we have enough peaceful life, lol. Let’s get tough! climbing to The Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery.
Where and how to get there!
The Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery is located on Sha Tin, Hong Kong. We took MTR, the green line from Yau Ma Tei station and changed to the blue line at Kowloon Tong station to Sha Tin station. It took 30 minutes from our hotel to Sha Tin station. We had lunch at the New Town Plaza, it connects with the MTR station. There is a big mall with many brand name shops and also many people.
After finished lunch, we walked through Sha Tin station to Old Sha Tin Committee Building. Follow the road to Homesquare. (It is a home shopping center, all inside is about home, many furniture shops and also IKEA.) Then, walked around the building. The entrance to The Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery is behind Homesquare. Keep going to a small door at the corner near the entrance to the parking lot, it looks like you get to the wrong way but That’s the entrance.

The small secret door leads us to a small path, I felt like we are not a good way. When I looked forward, it ‘s the right way, yeah! I realized here is road toThe Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery when I see many golden statues on both sides of the small path. It’s amazing to see hundreds of monks’ statues likes this. They are different face and position which need to do one by one.
We climbed up hundreds of steps to the hall where there are three or four big Chinese gods standing inside with thousands of small golden buddha’s statues covered the walls from the floor to the ceiling. This hall is very beautiful but a photo or video are not allowed inside.
It was nice to climb up to this place, it is quite peaceful. It should be nice to visit on the weekday, to avoid groups of visitors. Anyway, this is another good place to visit in Hong Kong. And to prepare my legs before the most painful trip on Dragon’s back tomorrow.
PS, our video about The Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery will online soon on WTS channel soon. ^^
Au revoir & see you tomorrow
