Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin is a busy temple, and it is very interesting to watch the crowd. Head to the fortune-tellers after visiting the temple.

You have to go very early like 7-9 AM so it won't be busy. There are officers and numbers provided so you can notice which way you should go first. It is very busy. It is not a peaceful temple if you wanna chill and...More

it's one of the iconic temple in HK, but it's just a temple, it would be very crowed during the Chinese new year, beware of the smoke, it will cause your eyes tearing.

We were going to see the giant Buddha, but didn't have enough time, so we decided to just visit a temple instead. The hotel concierge recommended this template to us - one of the biggest in Hong Kong. It took us about 30 minutes by...More
