Bustling Temple

Always frequent by lots of locals and tourist. Will be extremely crowded during weekends or when CNY is drawing near.

This temple complex & gardens are right in the middle of Hong Kong's skyscrapers. It is a beautiful set up with several temples in the complex, fountains, gardens, dragon wall & statues to see. The temple itself is free, though there are donation boxes. The architecture is fabulous. Just outside the MTR entrance at Wong Tai Sin.

Read about this famous Taoist temple in Hong Kong Tourism information centre and checked it out at the official Discover Hong Kong website: http://www.discoverhongkong.com Visited with our cousin and friends at different occasions out of curiosity, like all the tourists that were there. We were not religious and not practice Taoists. On each occasion it seemed I was their tour... More

I'd been wanting to go to a traditional Chinese temple for a while and Wong Tai Sin fit the bill perfectly. It's absolutely beautiful, with the fragrance of the incense sticks and the unique smattering of offerings brought in by fervent devotees. We were on a very short visit to Hong Kong during the New Year and as expected, it... More

Great temple with lots of followers on a random day. Can't imagine how busy it would be on Chinese New Year or on special occasions. One of the must visit places for tourists! If you only have time to visit one temple, this is the one.

Very entertaining experience to see the rich history of the Chinese customs and traditions. It was very busy when we were there with people on tour busses. Definitely partake in the stick shaking practice that many of the people will be doing. If you go with J3 tours he will give you a great overview of the experience.

Easily accessible via MTR - stop at Wong Tai Sin MTR and take exit B2. We went on a weekday afternoon, and the temple is quite busy with visitors. Very nice and colorful temple buildings. Do visit the garden at the back of the temple too - it's very peaceful with greens and a lake.

Plenty of history here, and it's easy too see the comparison between old and new, with all the high rise buildings surrounding this great piece of history. Very close to the city, only 4 stops from where I was staying in Mong Kok, and has it's own Metro Station. Wonderfully presented, and they have created some lovely featured gardens surrounding...

This is rated as one of the places to visit and is apparently an old landmark in Hong Kong. We reached it via the subway/MTR it was maybe 30mins from Central and has it's own station. It was very busy with both locals and tourists. This temple was founded in 1894 and there is a plague which explains how it... More

Well worth a visit, we were too late for the good wishes garden and only had a short visit but we all far preferred this to the 10,000 Buddhas Temple
