It's a place full of culture and an experience to be had. It's easy to get to and worth visiting whilst in Hong Kong. It's next to Diamond Hill MTR where the Nunnery and Gardens are so worth visiting all on the same trip.

Unlike many of the very beautiful but eerily quiet temples available to visit, Wong Tai Sin temple is enormously popular with local worshippers and visitors are just an addendum to it's daily life. Reached via Wong Tai Sin station on the MTR, just follow the signs for the temple as you come off the train, the temple is free to... More

It was really cool - we could see how the local taking this Temple really seriously and sincerely. Thinking to experience the local attraction, we went during CNY day 1 but saw hundreds or thousands of people forming queues to the temples... TOO MANY people queuing like tuna sandwich, it appeared to take at least 30-60mins to squeeze to the... More

Stand strong among Hong Kong' concrete jungle. This temple is one of the main temple in Hong Kong where's millions of locals are praying here during special day or daily (please so how some respect to this holy place and prayer while you are taking pictures). There's a narrow tunnel beside the temple where's tens of sops are selling interesting... More

This is a very interesting temple that has 3 religions on it: Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism. It's free. You may go by metro. Right next to it there is a garden called Good Wish Garden, which is a very quiet and nice place to visit.

great to visit during CNY, if you don't mind a lot of people, you can enjoy the praying atmosphere and spirit during Chinese New Year.

Fabulous ! Great scenes of throngs of people worshiping for the Lunar New Year, including offerings, kneeling cushions and fortune teller booths.

In a different view to the other reviewers, I loved going here on chinese new year. it was fun seeing the place alive with visitors even though it was pouring with rain. Watching them say their prays and take their fortune sticks was very interesting. It was also nice to escape into the garden behind (not signposted) and to see... More

Nice temple complex with many fortune telling stalls beside the temple but don't go especially during Chinese New Year as the lines can go very long.

We have been here before so I can recommend a visit. It was however bedlam at Chinese New Year with an "interesting" experience of good natured Chinese crowds pushing their way so that they could offer their prayers for the coming year to the gods. One of our party was convinced that her hair was going to be set on... More
