“Be here early to avoid crowds”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

Would always bring my mom here when we are in Hong Kong.
This round we reach Wong Tai Sin around 9am and lucky us the crowds of tourist are not here yet.. but by the time we are about to leave this place like 9.30 am. Groups of tourist are starting to pack up the place.
Just follow the directional signs of entering and leaving to go around the temple (crowd controlling purpose) and you will be fine.

“Ok but limited access”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

It depends where u have been before, this is a reasonable temple visit but not grand. Only members see all the temple and members of staff are very cold, no religious feel.

“One of the most famous temple in HK but”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

This is one of the most famous temple in Hong Kong but when we arrived there and need the "praying stuff (签筒)" from the temple, the person in charge are very rude. So prepare yourself for such a no manner person.

“Interesting temple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Within walking distance from MTR of the same name. Very crowded when we went on a weekday morning, lots of tourists busy snapping pictures. Devotees line up orderly to offer the incense sticks. there's an area for devotees to qiu qian too. worth going

“Lots of tourist!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

I was surprised to see lots of tourist and they come here in bus loads!

If you are getting there yourself, this place is easy to find and accessible by the MTR. Be very careful of the incense when you are there. It gets very crowded and one will get burnt quite easily.

There is a little traditional Chinese garden behind the temple and it is surprising not that crowded. The garden is a good place to take a break and enjoy the peaceful air of the temple surroundings.
