Revisited: Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery in Sha Tin

It has been almost five years since I've last visited the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery, so it was due for a revisit. This time, I took Lina along and therefore I decided to walk up in cool January rather than humid April (like last time). I knew that the path to the monastery is hidden… Continue reading Revisited: Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery in Sha Tin
