I took a Chinese visitor to Hong Kong to see some of the local temple culture on a temple run day. We started at the quiet and beautiful  Nan Lian gardens and Chu Lin Nunnery near Diamond Hill, continues to the hectic Wong Tai Sin and then made our way to the 10000 Buddhas near Sha Tin. It was an amazing day with terrific weather – sunny and clear blue skies.

If you’re visiting HK and love temples, I think this would be the perfect day for you.
