Grand red pillars, a magnificent golden roof embellished with blue friezes, and yellow latticework adorn Wong Tai Sin Temple, built in 1921. But the temple is famous for more than its aesthetic charms—it is also known for its fortune telling. Join the countless people who come to this Hong Kong temple to burn incense and discover their futures. They kneel before the main altar, make a wish, and shake a bamboo cylinder containing fortune sticks until one falls out. A soothsayer interprets the fortune, and it is said that they often come true within the same year.|
But if that’s not your cup of tea, wander the grounds and gardens to admire the full beauty of this temple that caters to all 3 major religions of China—Buddhism, Taoism, and Confucianism. Don’t miss the Grand Hall, Sansheng Hall, and the Good Wish Garden.
Make a quick stop at Lok Ma Chau, a perfect vantage point to take in the remarkable towering skyline of modern Shenzhen—the largest city in the Pearl River Delta, and the largest manufacturing base in the world. Travel on to Tsang Tai Uk, or “Tsangs’ Big House” with its iron gates and ornamented roof to scare away evil spirits. Thick walls and four tall corner towers built around 5 courtyards fortify this dwelling built by a wealthy stonemason in the 1840s. Originally built to house and protect its owner and his descendants, this impressive compound served as a refuge for displaced families after World War II.
You’ll also visit Tai Po New Market, which runs the entire length of Fu Shin Street. Enter through the last surviving structure of the original buildings built in 1892. Get a feel for the people in Tai Po as the bustle of daily life surrounds you. Find exotic spices, dried goods, fresh produce, and all the daily necessities for the people this lively market serves.
