Some of the attractions includes the Po Lin monastery, famous for the statue of the Great Buddha; the “tourist” Monastery of Ten thousand Buddhas, an atmospheric and unforgettable temple whose construction dates back to 1957; the temple of Wong Tai Sin, which according to legend, if a wish is made here, it will come true .
