Is a typical chinese temple, on the corner of Temple str. and Market str. Beautiful atmosphere, large square full of trees. If you are around, he temple is worth a look!

Went here but didn’t stay long. It was awesome inside with the various statues and incense burning but was run down. Understand this is a religious temple and people were silently praying. Interesting to visit and worth a look.

Jordan / Yau Ma Tei
The Jordan and Yau Ma Tei neighbourhood is where you
will find some of the more authentic areas of Hong
Kong. Not as glamourous or busy as its neighbours Mong
Kok to the north or Tsim Sha Tsui to the south, Yau Ma
Tei is often mistakenly overlooked by visitors on
their trips to Hong Kong. Exploring parts of this area
makes you feel like you’ve been transported back in
time. A large part of the neighbourhood draws from the
