Next drive about 25 minutes to Repulse Bay located on the south side of Hong Kong Island. Spend some time wandering the golden soft sand of the beach here.
In the afternoon visit The Wong Tai Sin Temple, which claims to ‘make every wish come true upon request’. Home to three religions (Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism) its natural setting and beautifully ornamented buildings make it as much a scenic attraction as an important religious center.

Your last stop today is the Avenue of the Stars, a 400-metre long stretch of waterside promenade along the northern side of Victoria Harbour, in front of the New World Centre at Tsim Sha Tsui. The avenue, which was built along an existing promenade, opened in April 2004.

The main temple houses three bronze statues of the Buddha and many Buddhist scriptures. Nearby visit the largest Tian Tan Bronze Buddha (or Giant Buddha), one of the five largest statues in China. This giant Buddha, symbolizing the harmonious relationship between man and nature, is the center of Buddhism in Hong Kong and a popular attraction.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
