HONG KONG: 10,000 BUDDHAS in SHATIN



HONG KONG: 10,000 BUDDHAS in SHATIN
For those of you looking for off-the-trail tourist attractions in Hong Kong, you can go to the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery in Shatin district. 
It is a famous Buddhist monastery located on the mountain behind Shatin Pai Tau Village near the Shatin station of the East Rail Line of the  Mass Transit Railway (MTR) in Hong Kong.
This place is near IKEA Shatin. We dropped by IKEA Shatin after our visit to the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery.
It was founded in 1949 by the Reverend Yuet Kai, a devout Buddhist layman who dedicated the last years of his life to constructing a temple containing nearly 13,000 statues of Buddha, and completed in 1957. 
There are no resident monks in this monastery. The ones managing this monastery are laypersons.
The monastery is divided into upper and lower portions. The whole complex occupies over eight hectares. In this complex are five temples, four pavilions, one pagoda and one veranda.
The main building of the monastery is the Ten Thousand Buddhas Temple which has more than 12,800 pieces of Buddha statues (in different postures) placed on the walls. 
The immortal body of Rev. Yuet Kai is located in the central portion of the temple.
The climb to the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery is not for everybody though. 
You should have strong knees to climb the path up to the 10,000 Buddhas Temple. 
Juice mi aside from parang bundok ang aakyatin mo, aba may blessings pa nang pumunta kami doon. Yes! Inulan kami! Kaya ayun kesa 45 minutes inabot kami ng 2 hours bago namin naakyat ang tuktok ng bundok, pero naman sulit talaga!
At first, we got lost and took the wrong way because we missed the very small signage pointing to the direction of 10,000 Buddhas Monastery (see the above picture). 

We found ourselves climbing the cemetery (which has an escalator from the ground level) beside the Monastery. So, better take note of that "signage."

VICTORIA PEAK HONG KONG


How to reach Victoria Peak? Tourists can take the Peak Tram, a pleasant ride ascending the mountain. The tram has been in operation for over one hundred years, and to date, no accidents have ever occurred. Your journey aboard the tram will take eight minutes and upon reaching the summit you will see a seven storied building in the shape of a ship.




Hong Kong is a luminous pearl with a sea of lights twinkling in the streets after dark. Where is the best place to enjoy the multi-colorful night scene that encompasses Hong Kong and Victoria Harbor? Victoria Peak is a good location to view its night scene. Being 554 meters (about 1,817.6 feet) above sea level, Victoria Peak is the highest point within Hong Kong and occupies the western part of the island.
Viewing Hong Kong at night is a must! The panoramic vista is one of the most beautiful night scenes in the world! So a visit to the Lion Pavilion on the peak is a must. Standing upon the pavilion and overlooking the Victoria Harbor and the Kowloon Peninsula, a spectacular night view will unfold in front of your eyes. The Victoria Harbor is one of the world's busiest harbors and has a constant ebb and flow of shipping all year round. With row upon row of skyscrapers stand prominently on the Central District which is Hong Kong's financial and economic hub. 

Thanks Khae for the pix!

HONGKONG DISNEYLAND ADVENTURE LAND


Welcome to Hong Kong Disneyland
Adventure Land
The Gate of the Adventure Land begins here!

The Jungle River Cruise 

Here you will take an exotic boat ride to the jungle.

There are three lines for boarding, one for speakers of Mandarin, one for Cantonese, and one for English.

Cruise the classic river voyage of adventure. Brave mysterious jungles with surprises around every bend in the river including an epic battle of fire and water. Come face to face with beasts such as hippos, elephants, cobras and orangutans and the most feared animal in the jungle — your wisecracking skipper!



























The boat navigates down a narrow passageway when all of a sudden, our route is blocked by an erupting geyser.



Just in the nick of time, we make a sudden turn to the right and are confronted with another geyser blocking our path and an evil-looking, monster-like rock formation. Smoke and steam start to spew from the crevices and then flames explode from the rock’s mouth.


      
                                                     
 Just when you think all is lost, we escape in the nick of time!        

Yes!
