Best Temples in Sheung Wan

Local Recommendations from our My Guide Hong Kong team

A big part of each country's culture is their religion. This is why temples have always been important places in Hong Kong, especially during special holidays and festivals.

Visiting a temple may be a daily activity to some locals. For tourists, a one-time visit is enough for them to soak in the spiritual atmosphere different from what they see in religious places of other countries. Here, temples burst with colors, and the chants of those who pray may seem just a noise. Food is always present, as a gift to the gods. There are various temples throughout Hong Kong all devoted to gods of Buddhism and Taoism. You'll spend not a single dollar as these places are free.
