This time I revisited with my wife, my son and his family,... More

Wong Tai Sin Temple is a great place to visit to become immersed in Chinese mythology and religion. Zodiac statues stand near the entrance, and once you enter the gate there is a buzz of activity, with people praying, burning incense, bowing, shaking cans full of numbered sticks, and more. The building and the grounds are beautiful, especially if you... More

We visited the temple from the perspective of seeing a famous temple in Hong Kong and understanding the culture there. Right at the entrance is the bronze statutes of the 12 Chinese zodiacs. We also toured the garden at the back of the temple.

Visiting this temple is a MUST when you are in Hong Kong. The temple is surrounded by high skyscrapers. Easy acces with the metro, just a 3min walk and you are in front of the temple. When we visited the temple, there were many tourists. Not many locals were praying. When you have enough time, visit the garden. It is... More

I definitely recommend visiting this temple, surrounded by skyscrapers. It is accessible by metro, it has beautiful garden where you can recharge during the hot days. Prepare that there might be many tourists, not just local people praying.

This temple is famous as a tourist attraction but you won't be seeing much locals here unless its a special prayer occasion. There is a long row of fortune tellers and numerous prayer item shops. This is not some old weathered temple if you are looking for an authentic feel. It is miniature-grand and would make a good photography site.... More

Me and friends always as this temple is easy to access, walking distance from MTR Station is just 5 minutes. Good place for relax yourself fulled of the trees but less visitors.
