  • Mother House is one of the main view point in the North Sea, sell decorative works out beautiful things tend to view gardens, Wong Tai Sin is more beautiful than Hong Kong, happens to be the nine emperors Royal 誕, can still see very unique parade begins. But beware, Royal 誕 staff for the nine emperors, Chinese people shop all Club Med Mai for sale only vegetarian, Happy Valley if you want to eat good food, not the Userboxes/Time to the North Sea.

  • The architecture and design of this place is stunning, I visited this place during the day and the temple was quiet and deserted. Lots of detail and vibrant colours. I won't recommend going unless it'...  more »

  • A really good place to visit to see local culture. It's only open until 10pm.
  • Excellent to visit especially during Chinese Lunar month of 9 for celebration of 9 Emperor Festival. Whole stretch of street is filled with vegetarian food vendors. Go there during evening time between 6pm to 7pm to get the magical twilight hour photo. Many levels to visit and photograph. This temple is established since 1970 and ranked among the most beautiful temple dedicated to the 9 Emperor Gods. Verdict - worth to detour.
  • Temple night view is nice and night market available 2 months before CNY
  • Nice looking Chinese temple, great ornamentation
  • The landmark touristic spot in mainland Butterworth. Tips: there's a CNY night market every night between End Nov-end Jan
