It's very small but has packed so much history. The Taoist Temple has limited hours. Go to the website to plan your trip around their hours. But the collection of Chinese artifacts are top. The Temple was shuttered for decades and when they finally opened...More

If there is an event going on then this is 10 stars. It is open and has lots of balconies so even in the hottest weather you can enjoy the Lion Dance or other events. The stores really go all out during special events, which...More
