Wong Tai Sin is slightly further away from the central but it's definitely worth going. There's a garden in the middle of it and a relaxing place to be. For believers, head down there to pray earnestly and you might just get lucky. :)

This was the first temple we visited and it was the most busy out of all the ones we went too. It seemed a bit strange seeing hundreds of tourists with selfie sticks walking around the grounds while people were also clearly praying there in the middle section. The temple itself is beautifully constructed but just very very busy with... More

Visited the temple after visiting Chi Lin Nunnery which was about a 15 minute walk. It is literally next to the MTR station which is incredibly close. Some of the nearby roads are being redone at the moment which makes finding he entrance difficult if walking from diamond hill. Find the exit B2 on the MTR abd will take you... More

Heavingly busy when we came on a Sunday morning. In the main temple area the air was thick with incense as hundreds of worshippers burned incense sticks. There was more of an air of commercialism than piety here. The statues and shrines were fascinating, with good descriptions in English. Best of all were the gardens, with the essential Chinese elements... More

The place is easy to find as it is clearly stated in MRT map. A lot of people visiting and worshipping inside the pagoda. Especially, the Chinese architecture is big and typical of Asian tradition. There are also exquisite sculptures in the front yard for you to take some photos (they are the Twelve Holy Animals in Eastern culture).

This beautiful temple is an indispensable experience of Hong Kong, is a very famous temple between locals and a place of pilgrimage, which gives it a very magical atmosphere. The importance of visiting this temple lies in making a wish and you will be granted. It also has the peculiarity of being shared by Confucians, Taoist and Buddhist. For us... More

Living temple with surrounding garden. Oasis in middle of Hong Kong. Loved the religious trinket stalks and fortune teller hall.

The Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple’s claim to ‘make every wish come true upon request’ might have something to do with its popularity. มาไหว้พรความรักกับเทพเจ้าหวังต้าเซียน เดินทางสะดวกด้วย รถไฟฟ้า อยากมาที่นี่เพราะรอเปลี่ยนเครื่องไปโอกินาว่า มีเวลาประมาณ 12 ชั่วโมง เดินทางจากสนามบินด้วยบัสหมายเลข A21 ลงป้ายที่ 6 หน้า รร. Metropark Mong kok แล้วเดินไปลง MTR Prince Edward 100 เมตร ไปลงที่ MTR Wong Tai Sin (หวังต้าเซียน) ถึงวัดประมาณ 17.00 โชคดีเพราะวัดปิด 17.30 คนเลยไม่เยอะ ไหว้เสร็จก็รถไฟฟ้าไปช็อปปิ้งและทานอาหารเย็นแถวย่านมงก๊กยันดึก

Visited on 08/03/2017 with friends,is very crowded with groups of tour. Is very big with small 'temples',surrounding is beautiful for photos taking. But you are unable to enter the temple just worship with joss stick from outside. Have to buy joss stick from stall outside the entrance.

This is a really interesting temple right at the MTR station. Many locals go here to worship using incense, sticks and food offerings. It is very colourful and there are some plaques to explain what the various deities represent. There is a wishing pond behind it which is very colourful and has lots of turtles in.
