Every visit to Hong Kong includes a visit to Wong Tai Sin Temple. Both believers and people of other faiths also visit because of its historical value. It is conveniently located at Wong Tai Sin MTR and beside a shopping plaza.

Visited there with friends from overseas ....very crowded because of the 95 years anniversary celebration of the Temple. A very famous local Chinese Temple can be easily access by MTR in minutes. There is a line of stalls selling insence sticks and accessories upon arrival, look for an small entrance between the stalls and the main entrance, there you can... More

Sik Sik Yuen temple, as it is properly known by, may be quite a way out of the centre of Hong Kong. However, it is seriously worth the trip. Anticipation may become fraught with doubt as one leaves the local MTR station only to be confronted with a large shopping centre, and a plaza bursting with stalls selling cheap tourist... More

On the weekend days it is a crowed place though when walking to the Good Wish Gardens there is even a peaceful and silent ambiance. Don't miss however the devote people with sometimes too much incense with them.

A busy place watching all the worshippers burn their incense; bow and jostle for position. Great energy and dedication in this well kept temple. Lovely gardens and water feature out the back. Easy access with MTR virtually stopping at the cent door.

This is a large complex, complete with fortune tellers, a health clinic, and even a center for hopeful marriages. A blend of Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism lets you cover all your bases. There are photo opportunities galore and the colors, sights and sounds are all interesting. There is even a lovely garden, which is quite a contrast to the hustle... More

There were a lot of tourists and locals. While locals were praying, tourists walking around and taking pictures. For those of you who are coming from Asian countries especially those that still have Chinese tradition, skip this as it doesn't really have any special attraction compare to the other normal temple. For those who are interested in Chinese tradition, you... More

We didn't have a lot of time in Hong Kong, but decided to visit this temple as it was not far from our hotel. We took a taxi and were dropped off at the back side so it took some walking to find the entrance. And then we were stunned and overwhelmed. It was a Saturday, so families were out... More
