The last time I visited this place was 20+ years ago. At that time many local will goes to pray. Nowadays, I saw many PRC tourist; they yelled and speaks so loud basucally spoiling the peace of the spiritual place. So sad ......

After seeing scenery from Victoria Peak and enjoying lunch in hectic Mong Kok, this place provided really a different view. Beautiful temple with somehow peaceful feeling, despite of many people visiting. Great sculptures and architecture. And it was really easy to get there by subway.

A great temple to visit but it is the most busiest place I have ever been to! We went mid day so maybe try early in the morning to avoid the crowds. Everyone is holding inscence so it gets very smoky be warned! A good atmosphere though and worth a visit.

Not too far away from Kowloon or HK via MTR. Just next to Wong Tai Sin MTR. Great looking place with lots to see.

When on a business trip, I got a day off to explore HK. Now while everyone kept recommending malls, I was in search of something different, and the hotel told me about the Wong Tai Sin temple. It's really simple to reach with the MTR and is just a minute's walk from the Wong Tai Sin station. A tip -... More
