    Po Lin Monastery is a big site and has many other interesting things to see such as the 'Wisdom Path', a teahouse, a tea plantation, a cultural village and many restaurants – the most popular being the vegetarian one run by the monks. You will need a good pair of shoes to climb 268 steps to see the Giant Buddha close up. The weather can be chilly, so warm clothes are needed.
