I was surprised how nice this place was in the middle of Kowloon. Trees and a shady place to sit and just relax. The temple itself is your typical Chinese Temple. Lots of incense burning. Worth the 5 minutes it takes to just check it...More

Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you
will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong
