This Taoist temple is one of the most frequently visited temples in Hong Kong. It is dedicated to Wong Tai Sin, a legendary hermit who reputedly had healing powers and could foretell the future. The ornate temple with its red pillars, gold ceilings and decorative latticework is in the traditional Chinese style and is usually full of people burning incense... More

Very crowded on the first and fifthteen days of each lunar month. I would rather come on another day and a visit is not recommended on the Chinese New Year Eve unless you insist. Too many worshippers wait for the second to give the first incense in a new year. They rush and push sometimes, so it is not the... More

It was very crowded although I visited Won Tai Sin temple in a rainy day. I think it is typical for Hong Kong temple and the architecture is worth seeing. The opposite site is Won Tai Sin plaza, if you come to underground level, there is a dim sum stall which is very good. I remember it was not expensive,... More

Some staffs here are speaking our language and fun enough to make us smile, if you don't know how just ask any staff out there. This place is so big and peaceful, not only the tourist come here also many citizen comes to visit everyday like The Era wan Shrine in Bangkok.

The beautiful temples are completely ruined by bus loads of mainland Chinese who are rude, hunt in packs, take selfies, all have umbrellas and probably then say how great it was back on the bus to the next "must do" site in HK

We visited this temple on a weekend. Caught the MTR from Kowloon and it was easy to navigate to get here. Before climbing the stairs up to the temple, there were the twelve lunar zodiacs statues which were popular with a lot of the tourists. Past the main archway, there was a compound where worshippers pray and shake bamboo sticks... More

We tried the shaking of bamboo sticks and went to the fortune tellers to have it interpreted. A new experience for us. The architecture in the temple is uniquely chinese. Worth spending some time here, its very convenient through the mtr railways.

Went with some friends to check out this very popular tourist attraction. It was an ordinary day but really crowded. There are many many mainland Chinese tourists going by the coach load as well as locals visiting for prayers. The place is ran with some amount of efficiency. The approach into the halls is from the left (after the main... More
