The temple is next to the night market, so you can visit the temple in late afternoon and go to the night market after that. It is one of the oldest temple in Hong Kong. I would take a look of the temple buidling itself and appreciate the traditional decorations including those in the main hall, on the roof and... More

Brought my parents here and they really like this temple~ It is really an eye-opener for me to see those really big incense hanging on the roof. Those are for praying purpose and it can last for 7 days, you can write down your wishes and hang together with the incense. The staff is helpful, but mostly speak Cantonese and... More

The Youmadi Tianhou Temple is one of the famous temple in Hong Kong. You can see lots of people prayer during the day time and lots of the elderly people gathering there chatting or chess game.

An old temple but not much to see. Though it is in Sheung Wan, which is not far from Central, it is not near to the public transport. Suggest to go have a look if you pass by that area but not worth to go there just to see it.

This is the Chinese listing for the Tin Hau Temple in the Ya Ma Tei district of Kowloon. This is one of 70 Tin Hau temple found in Hong Kong and it is rather typical of those dedicated to the god - Tin Hau. Here you can find the expected interior halls with shrines, statues, incense coils and paper burning... More

Staying in Jordan / Yau Ma Tei

Neighborhood Profile
Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighborhood is where you will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong Kong. Not as glamorous or busy as its neighbors Mong Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in time. A large part of the neighborhood draws from the rich history of Temple Street, stretching from Jordan to Yau Ma Tei, where a mix of dai pai dongs (outdoor restaurants), market stalls, fortune tellers and old karaoke bars bring out the history and culture of the area. The neighborhood is a showcase of diversity – different ethnicities, cultures, and a mix of old and new.
