(美国小镇 měi guó xiǎo zhèn), Fantasyland (幻想世界 huàn xiǎng shì jiè),Adventureland (探险 tàn xiǎn) and Tomorrowland (明日世界 míng rì shì jiè). There is as yet no Frontierland, although it may be included in future expansion projects. The theme park's cast members use English and Chinese, including Cantonese and Mandarin dialects, to communicate verbally. Guide Maps are printed in both Traditional and Simplified characters, Japanese, and in English.

Serving as a Buddhist retreat, this monastery was originally built by three monks in 1920 with only a shrine dedicated to Buddha. In 1924, it was renamed 'Po Lin Monastery' and many monks gradually settled there. Since the 1930s, the monastery has been expanded with additional larger halls and temples added to it. In the 1970s, it became one of the top 10 Buddhist monasteries in Hong Kong.The main building at the monastery is the temple, although the decorations inside are very simple, which does not tend to overwhelm visitors with the glamour of Buddhism. It does not even have the traditional atmosphere as founded in Man Mo Temple on the Hong Kong Island.
