My visit to the Ten Thousand Buddhas monastery turned out to be a huge waste of time. Not only is it far from the central areas of Hong Kong, but getting there is really difficult. The monastery was very hard to find and I actually ended up in another monastery/temple on the same hill, climbed an endless flight of stairs for over an hour, only to realize I was in the wrong place. I was not the only one who was confused, a few other tourists I met on the way had the same problem.
The sign showing the way to the monastery was actually impossible to see from the street. When I eventually found it, I had to climb a ton of stairs again, only to be bitterly disappointed by the tasteless display of kitsch I met along the way and on top. This was the least interesting temple I've seen in Asia.
I definitely do not recommend this place, especially if you only have a couple of days to spend in the city. There are some much better places to see in half a day!
