  • Don't know when it was built / established but knew it from older generations. To locals it is a place that they usual visit twice a year, firstly, to pray for their wishes, usually in respect of their family, career, peace, marriage and all other kinds of hopes. By the end of the year they should comeback to thanks for the assistance given by the Gods of the temple in return. To tourists, it is a historical built place that worth visiting.
  • After visiting Wong Tai Sin Temple, you couldn't miss the street food. It holds every first three days of Chinese Lunar New Year. The roasted food was signature, chicken knee, beacon and beef. They mixed with different seasoning..... So yummy!
