Had lunch at Hong Fa Temple today. Not busy, restaurant a la carte menu but the food quality was decidedly average. Even in this vegetarian desert there are much better possibilities in Shenzhen. Fairy Lake Botanical Gardens are OK, but a little over-managed and boring. The Temple is simply yuk! No spirit, no character, no feeling - completely devoid of any emotion (other than Chinese people praying for money to rain down on them.) My advice is give it all a miss, head out of this cultural desert to Yunnan!
Cons: Food quality, Price, Location
