Directions to Lam Tsuen Wishing Trees

One of Hong Kong's most unique attractions is a tree with hanging bright red paper containing thousands of wishes written on them.

However, hanging bright red paper wasn't the practice years ago. Before, to make a wish, one will have to write his/her wish in a large yellow paper and then roll it and tie it to an orange before tossing it up the tree. It has been said that the higher it landed on the tree, the higher probability that your wish will come true. Fortunately, this practice is not being done anymore because the people have noticed that hanging a lot of oranges over the branches gave a lot of weight and pressure to the tree, making it weaker.

There are two wishing trees, a smaller one and the bigger one. The smaller one used to be big too, but because of the said previous practice, it seems like it has shrunk because of old age. The bigger tree was used to make wishes related to personal life such as wishes in studies, career, wealth and health. The smaller one was used to make wishes about marriage and family. These days, though, many people just make their wishes at the bigger tree.

The Lam Tsuen Wishing Trees were originally a camphor tree. Through the years, it leaves and branches withered and became a hollow tree, but still looking interesting.

Nowadays, a wish is made through Chinese incense sticks and still the same wishing papers, but this time, it is burned and tied on the wooden rack next to the tree.
