8th June 2019 – (Hong Kong) Lung Tsai Ng Yuen which means Garden of Enlightenment at Lung Tsai has been restored as a retreat in Southwest Lantau Island. The hidden gem, a private property, was founded by textiles baron Wu Kunsheng in 1962 but it became dilapidated after his death.
It took Wu four years and cost him around HK$2million to complete. The design is based on the classical architectural style of Jiangnan gardens. The main building which lies in the south side of the garden contains many Buddhist objects.
This hidden gem cannot be accessed by road. You can only reach it by foot. As it is not open to public, if you wish to go there, please remember that it is a private retreat and try not to disturb the occupants.
3 ways to get there:
- Lantau Trail Section 6 from Tai O. (Around 45minutes to an hour)
- Lantau Trail Section 5 from Keung Shan Road. (Around 1.30 hours to 2 hours)
- Keung Shan Path (40 minutes)
