Historic Site Religious Site
Che Kung Temple was built in the early 12th century in honour of Che Kung, a military commander of the Southern Song dynasty, whose wartime achievements eventually led him to being revered as a god. Primarily functioning to accommodate the increasing number of worshippers for the Che Kung festival, the temple also attracts tourists with a giant statue of Che Kung himself, as well as a huge drum, a bell, and a fan-bladed wheel of fortune, said to bring good luck if spun three times.

  • They have already held back if they see architecture, felt that the trade involved so much as Buddhists, commercial. Expensive rice If the faith, it was okay, but the overall feel a lot of people just sitting down, but the tour will Thailand local people feel are going to meet Wong Tai Sin over nasa.

  • This was a very nice temple. Nothing massive and spectacular, and yet there was a very nice atmosphere here. It's definitely worth a visit. I'm giving it 5 stars because I had a great time. Not very easy to reach, a bit distant from Hong Kong (1 hour by train: you'll need to change three different mtr lines and get ready cose it will be very crowded wherever you go, but hey this is Hong Kong). If you're OK with spending more money, go there by taxi and come back by train (easier to find a taxi in Hong Kong than outside the temple). We went there by train and it was so packed you have no idea. But still, worth it to go there.
  • A must-go sightseeing in Hong Kong for whom may like temple, a clean toilet, easy to access, parking outside the temple, feature souvenirs…
  • One great local temple. Stay away from the cny thought, if you don't want to be squished by the intensive crowd.
  • Nice place to worship. Easy access by MTR or city bus.
  • The new temple look good, but the real temple actually restricted to public.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
