Take the MTR to Wong Tai Sin for a bit of the local scene. A large and impressive temple with a lovely garden, fortune tellers and lots of worshipers. Cross the street for some street food vendors, or walk a few blocks for some fantastic Sichuan noodles.

I remembered going there when I was a little kid with my mom and sisters. Now it is all different but inside it is the same. A great place to remind me when I was a kid.

So wonderful to find such a atmospheric temple amongst all the high rise buildings. we made our own way to the temple on the MRT maps are easy to follow and stations all named in English. the Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lain Gardens are only about 10 minute walk away, make sure you have time to visit them.

We first visited the Temple years back but have decided to refresh our visit again. Being one of the main tourists attraction we have expected crowds so we went there earlier, reaching about 9:30am. It is just 5 mins walk from the黃大仙 station, Exit B2, where a new Temple Mall was built in recent years. However the short distance could... More

A busy but interesting temple.The architecture is beautiful, colourful and photograpic. There is a beautiful garden at the back with a small pond and waterfall. A peaceful setting in the middle of a city with a noisy and busy temple just next to.Easy to get to on Mrt.

All the guidebooks say Man Mo Temple is 'the thing to see' in Hong Kong. I wasn't impressed by Man Mo - it's tiny, falling apart on the outside and only has the incense coils to distinguish it. But Wong Tai Sin Temple reminded me of the colourful temples in Kyoto - big, brazen, glitzy. It also has a smallish... More

For Chinese, this is an very important Temple. At the day of our visit, a Sunday, the Temple was very overcrowded In any case, you should expect a lot of noise and crowds by the countless visitors. However, for Europeans it is a lot of fun, to watch this unusual Spectacle/Chaos. Everything looks rather strange and very commercial. Meanwhile, there... More

If you want to experience culture in the heart of Kowloon, this is the temple to visit. Superb architecture with a delicate display of various colours. One of my favourite places to visit in the city.
