Wong Tai Sin Monastery

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by sr92111 on March 7, 2001

The Wong Tai Sin Monastery is a great place to spend a couple of hours. One of the best parts about it is the proximity to the enormous buildings around it, but the feeling that you are out in the middle of nowhere. It has amazing gardens filled with turtles (they're good luck) and all sorts of fountains. There is also an altar where you can find many people burning incense and shaking cans of sticks (I think they are called jaw sticks) in order to discern their fortunes. A cultural place that should not be missed.
