To get the full detox treatment, stay at the Shaolin Wushu Cultural Centre. Here, visitors can partake in martial arts training and Zen meditation. Along with five hostel rooms that can accommodate up to 64 guests, the compound also boasts a canteen serving authentic Shaolin-style vegetarian meals.
