Clear signs given. Interesting sights within the temple to visit and cool down on a warm afternoon. There is a 月老 which a lot of people actually put a red string, provided by the temple, to pray to find their true love. Signage were posted to teach worshippers how to do it correctly.

Easy to get to by MTR, a few stops north of TST. On every visit to HK I pop by and pay my respects by burning a few incense sticks. There are a few classic temple buildings, a garden and pond with fish, a pretty selection of bonsai trees - and some rather tacky tourist shops and fortune tellers that... More

While a little off the beaten path, the Wong Tai Sin Temple is easy to reach by MTR. Once there, you'll be surrounded by the fragrant smell of burning incense and the sight of faithful believers rocking back and forth, shaking sticks, and praying. The architecture and colors are amazing. When I was there, I was the only Westerner, and... More

It is certainly worth visiting in Hong Kong. The temple consists of a few separate buildings and gardens. It is smaller than guide books show.

The place can be found when you step out of the MTR. It was a scorching hot day, and the place was over ran by PRC tourists. It was a horrible experience for us. Hot and noisy! The nearby mall was also a total let down. Can't even find a proper fast food there! We quickly ran out of its... More

I really enjoyed this temple. It had many interesting traditional Chinese features, lots of local life in the form of worshippers, and peaceful gardens with koi karp. It was all I could have hoped for and more. Good access from subway. While all are beautiful, having visited many South East Asia temples (Laos and Cambodia) I found it fascinating to... More

Wong Tai Sin is an MTR stop as well as a famous Chinese/Taoist temple. It is famous because the temple is said to grant wishes. You can also get your fortune told here. The temple grounds are massive but there's not much to see except a lot of Chinese styled architecture, ponds with fish and turtles and a lot of... More
