Not complaining, but it is really busy, and will be hard to take any photos with you and your family/friends. Though, quite a few things to see, and it's good that it's busy... read more

I always visited Wong Tai Sin when I traveled to HK. I liked the 12 zodiac statues outside of the temple. I touch all of them for good luck. The only thing I don't like is I could not get inside the temple hall, it was for member only. I have to pray from the courtyard outside and it was... More

Not complaining, but it is really busy, and will be hard to take any photos with you and your family/friends. Though, quite a few things to see, and it's good that it's busy - it gives it that.. vibe you know? It's just how it's meant to be :) Remember to buy incense before you come etc, or prepare to...

This temple is absolutely beautiful and we really enjoyed our visit here. There were lots of people visiting but the temple area is very big and the crowds quickly dispersed. When you enter the temple you are quickly overwhelmed by the smell of incense sticks. There are lots of smaller temples and pagodas aside from the main temple with helpful... More

A wonderful experience to visit this vibrant temple, full of colour and imagery . This is a working temple so be respectful of the worship and you will feel most welcome.

I came on a Sunday so the area was very crowded. But the energy was amazing, you can definitely feel some vibes here! The good wish garden and parts of the temple area were under construction so it was not too fancy but still, I took a lot of nice pictures. The temple is easy to reach by MTR.

Very interesting to visit and easily accessible. Several buildings and a nice garden laid out and all worth a look. Free to enter and you can witness locals praying and going through rituals.
