Don’t be afraid, allow yourself to hope, believe and trust again. Refuse to let any person or any thing define how you respond to the future.
On my only full day in Hong Kong, I decided to make the trek to see the Tian Tan Buddha. Two and a half hours (and 268 stairs in 100 degree heat) later, I stood here, amazed. This sits up there with the Sagrada Familia for larger-than-life, out-of-body experiences. Pictures can't do this justice, though not for lack of trying from me and literally every other tourist here as we collectively melted.
TIP: Don't fill up before making the trek! For 78 HKD (less than $10 USD), you can buy a ticket to see the exhibition halls inside the podium, which includes a meal of temple food from the Po Lin Monastery on ground level.
