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

This place is very crowded with mostly locals and Mainlanders praying for their wishes to come true. Outside the temple, vendors are selling various things that can be used for praying such as joss sticks and joss coils. There is no entrance fee, and it is very accessible. Just get off at MTR Wong Tai Sin station and walk to... More

Maybe my expectations were misplaced... I was expecting to feel the millennia of Chinese history. Either from legit old things or authentic newer things conveying some feeling of Chinese culture. But everything is new and plasticy, yet at the same time other things are kind of run down.
