Wong Tai Sin Temple is perhaps the largest and most famous Taoist institution in Hong Kong. However, its architectural style is quite similar to that of other temples in the city. Also, beware that this place is fully occupied by tourist groups and visitors can't...More

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.

The temple has change much over the years. A quick stop off MTR and direct access to the Temple. No retail store in the complex. A a plethora of donation boxes. A must if you enjoy temples.
