  • If you're in the area, you can visit the temple. However, a route is just does not need. It is a small temple of harmony. The authentic building stands in the middle of the high-rise buildings. Admission is free.

  • Every year Chinese calendar year Club Med and many games and weekday comparison clearly felt something was one of great Chinese Traditions and culture, equivalent of although not very big, but things tend to view, preserving Traditions of China Construction.

  • It is worth to go not really extra due to the temple. If you are just nearby, you should look at him. There are more beautiful temples in Hong Kong.

  • Under construction!. Looks like they are making repairs to the roof so there is scaffolding everywhere. I've been several times and in past years and loved it vowing to come back to take pictures with my good camera of the wonderful red lanterns and coiled incense that crowds the ceiling of this picturesque little temple but when I visited yesterday it was covered with so much scaffolding and boards it was almost impossible to get a picture. If you are in the area you can check it out but not worth the trip until the construction is done. UPDATE: AS OF APRIL 2017 THE RENOVATIONS ARE COMPLETE AND THE TEMPLE IS WONDERFUL!
  • Must visit. Unique temple in Hong Kong. Local would come to pray for their studies and careers. Famous among Thais and other nationalities
  • Near Lan Kwai Fong and Soho Central. You can also find lots of shops selling traditional Chinese arts around it
  • Worth visiting if you enjoy temples. Smaller than what I expected. There's a small shop selling temple souvenirs on the right.
  • Oldest temple in hong kong. This is a Taoist temple. It's open to the public and worth a visit. Beautiful interior with an impressive amount of burning incense.

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.
