Went here but didn’t stay long. It was awesome inside with the various statues and incense burning but was run down. Understand this is a religious temple and people were silently praying. Interesting to visit and worth a look.

The Tin Hau Temple is near the Jade market. As I entered it, I was met by a smoky incense. The Temple itself is a peaceful place. I liked the various circular rings hanging up. This temple has its own character. The temple is over...More

Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighborhood is where you
will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong
Kong. Not as glamorous or busy as its neighbors Mong
Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma
Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on
their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area
makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in
time. A large part of the neighborhood draws from the
