Short comments:

The temple is in a quiet and beautiful environment, where many visitors take photos and have a distant view of the Plover Cove.







Although there are stairs to the main entrance of each hall and ramps to detour to the outside of the halls, it is still difficult to cross the door sill into the halls to view the Buddha statues closely.




Take Exit A from Uptown Plaza and turn left into the tunnel.


There are signs along the road to the bus stop.


Get off the bus at the San Tau Kok, turn right according to the rear sign and walk for about 20 minutes to the main gate of Tsz Shan Monastery. The road is rugged and ends with a short slope to the main gate. Wheelchair users can drive directly to the parking lot of Tsz Shan Monastery.




The public is required to register in advance before visiting the temple and follow the temple's dress code, such as sleeved tops, long trousers, mid-calf dresses or pants, and no vests.


Address: No. 88 Universal Gate Road, Tai Po

Lung Mei Beach

Lung Mei Beach is the first beach in Tai Po. As the newest man-made beach, the water is and the beach clean. However, as the beach is only about 200 metres long, it can be crowded on holidays. Besides, sometimes there are sea urchins and jellyfish, especially at low tide, resulting in many swimmers being stung. Please take care when entering the water.

Plover Cove Reservoir

Plover Cove Reservoir is the second largest reservoir in Hong Kong, after High Island Reservoir, and is surrounded by beautiful scenery, with a tour trail running the entire reservoir.

The Bride's Pool Nature Trail is an easy-to-follow trail around two beautiful waterfalls - the Bride's Pool Waterfall and the Mirror Pool Waterfall. The Nature Trail is a great place for family outing. As a popular destination for rock lovers, Tung Ping Chau is home to the unique rock formations known as the "Ping Chau Formation".

Short comments:

The main dam is in the pleasant scenery, with a flat and wide road, along which many tourists fly kites, ride bikes and take photos. The main dam is about 2 kilometres long, and you can spend your time strolling while enjoying the views of the Plover Cove Reservoir and the Plover Cove.




The ramp from the Tai Mei Tuk Water Sports Centre to the start of the main dam is the only rough section of the trail. Visitors who want to go to the secondary dam can only pass the narrow opening as there is a gate at the end of the main dam. Some visitors may force their way through the gate with their bicycles, while wheelchair users cannot get through the gate.
