I visited there on my backpacking trip in Hong Kong. The weather was very hot, I was exhausted. But I was refreshed because there was very exciting and beautiful. There was a many beautiful statue and shrine. I turned to go back of the building, there was a pond beautiful decorated with small rest place. A lot of people came here to lend a wish. So do I.

This is the most famous temple in Hong Kong. You will easy heard mention on movie or drama. If you go on festival time here will very crowded. Lucky when I visit is not much person. I have make a wish at the temple as this is most famous temple in Hong Kong. And don't forget to visit the garden just located at behind temple. Very clean and peace garden never expected have the peaceful garden sounding by many apartment. You will find alot nice place to take picture. Don't miss it out.

Great for first timer. This temple was located just in front of the Wong Tai Sin MTR station. Although there was a huge crowd of worshipers each day, the temple was well maintained. There were staffs to direct the crowd. So, it was easy to just follow the direction. We also felt safe for this crowd control measures. The architecture of the temple was great and garden was well-kept. There was few resting spots. We got the chance to witness the Tao's praying session that started at about 1030am. Do not miss it.

Go to the Wong Tai Sin Temple to see some awesome gardens and walk around the temple to escape the madness of central Kowloon. This temple exceeded my expectations as it was very cool to see all the worshippers and almost no tourists! Do watch out for the burning of incense, it is intense. No fee, easy to get to, and interesting to check out.

Though I am not a believer, its still a lovely place to be there - the Taoist practises - try fortune telling. Avoid the prayer seasons - the crowd and burning of incense can be overwhelming and dangerous.
