My wife and I went to the temple on the last day we were in Hong Cong and it was great. We went early and it wasn't crowded. It is very colorful, the statues are amazing and I would highly recommend it.

Famous temple for locals and foreigners who come for praying. Must try your fortune by using the 100 bamboo sticks to ask Wong Tai Sin for your fortune, health & wealth. Just to get fortune paper cost HKD3. Asking fortune teller to translate cost HKD30.
