This is one of the most important temples in Hing Kong. It is colourful, noisy, vibrant, and very interesting! The smell of incense and the devotion make of this place magical. I really liked exploring this temple on my own. I love the gardens, terraces,...More

Without doubt, Wong Tai Sin Temple is the most popular Chinese temple in Hong Kong. Unlike other temples which may mainly worship the Buddha, it worships Wong Tai Sin who belongs to Taoism & unique in this temple. Other God& Goddess are worshipped here too....More

We loved the place. it felt so pure. There were so many people praying. There were 12 huge statues of the animals representing Chinese Years and we took turns posing with our animal.

There is no point in booking a tour. Just take the train. Its around $2usd. The exit to the train is literally right outside the train station..great experience if you like temples. Must do..why not??

Really interesting temple to visit, many interesting things, just absorb the atmosphere and take it in. Don't miss the gardens and the pools either. I would suggest spending time between an hour and two should be ok.

I guess it may be easier to take a taxi straight there from the airport, otherwise you have to change a few stations using MRT. Not sure if there is any direct bus from airport to Wong Tai Sin Temple.
