“This is such a peaceful space that has a zen-like quality, incorporating nature and the urban landscape in such a harmonious way. It's great to have a place like this within a dense urban city to decompress and relax.”
“We took a gondola through a mountainous region to see the Big Buddha. It was such a sublime, scenic experience getting there.”
“Loved the modern architecture of this building. The geometric shapes and modern materials of the building juxtaposed next to the surrounding water strike a peaceful balance. There was also an exhibition called “The Weight of Lightness,” which showcased work of one of my favorite artists, Lee Ufan.”
“This trail was a fun uphill hike to the top of the mountain. The view from the top was breathtaking, and something about seeing things from this point was very humbling.”
“It was incredible to literally walk past 10,000 gold painted Buddha statues on the trail up to the monastery. Each buddha was unique and different. The colors of gold and red were so vibrant and energizing.”
