We visited with friends that belongs to part of the village clans. It was a big celebration party and it drew a big crowd. Many worshipers and visitors of families came for the celebration party and artists performing traditional opera. We bought some good luck charms from the holders of market stores which had been setup on the day. Our family enjoyed the experience and learnt much about the history of the clans.

I read about the temple in guide books. It was built in early Qing Dynasty and it is situated at Ping Che Road in Ping Che Village, in rural part of North District of Hong Kong. Around Tin Hau's birthday, many come for the Chinese Opera performance. We took 79K bus from Sheung Shui Bus Terminus and got off at ' Ping Che Garden" which was the nearest stop to the temple ( see the official bus route via the bus company website http://www.kmb.hk/ ). We did check with the bus driver about the stop for the Ping Yuen Tin Hau Temple before we get on and asked him to remind us about the stop. He was helpful. From our stop we walked for about 7 minutes before we reached the temple. It was very hot around noon and I was glad that I had a hat and water! We visited the two buildings, the temple and the and the village Community Hall and the Memorial Hall too. I also chat ( in cantonese) with one of the members who was looking after the temple and learned more about the culture and history. I also put a few HKD into the charity donation box (part of the custom when you visit a temple but it is not compulsory!) The place offered peace and quiet and away from all the noise and hassle! Would recommend it to those who like trekking, culture and photography. Don't forget to wear long sleeves and trousers and carry mosquito spray during the hot season!
