FGS Dong Zen Temple 2013
CNY is just around the corner, exactly one month from today. Before year 2013 over, before I forgotten, FGS Dong Zen Temple, CNY Lantern & Floral Festival 2013 was held from 8-24 February 2013. It was my sixth visit and it’s still a favorite place during CNY.
Fo Guang Shan (FGS) Dong Zhen Temple
15 Feb 2013 | CNY Lantern & Floral Fest 2013
Opening hours are from 10.30am to 10.00pm. Admission and parking on officially designated areas are both FREE.
As usual, peoples flocked this place during CNY and make it very crowded. I’ve much difficulties in taking photo when people had blocked some nice view. Suggest to come during weekday to avoid super massive weekend crowd.
For me, the most suitable time is between 5.30pm to 8.30pm when I could have before & after the light was turned on, rather than going on day & night separately.
This year was rather different. There were 3D art displays near the side entrance. Also overall, it’s worth a visit due to not many get recycle at different location, if you know my meaning of recycling (reuse the same mascot in different place).
I visit FGS Dong Zen temple every year as part of CNY celebration. As long as it serves new attractions, it won’t be bored but keep the visitors entertained especially children.
