High above Hong Kong Island on the "back of the Dragon", Victoria Peak is Hong Kong´s premier visitor attraction, providing magnificent harbour and city views. Arriving late afternoon enables you to experience the dazzling panorama of Hong Kong Island, the harbour, Kowloon and the hills beyond. Later, you can thrill to the neon-dotted skyline by night. What´s more, The Peak offers visitors a multitude of fantastic entertainment. It is also the place where the richest members of the former colony live.

[Wong Tai Sin Temple]
Wong Tai Sin Temple, which gives the district its name, is nowadays one of Hong Kong´s best known cultural landmarks, probably the most well-known and busiest temple in the city, although it is only within the last century, that the name has come to prominence.

It was in 1915 that a portrait of the deity Wong Tai Sin was first brought to Hong Kong from a mainland temple, to be worshipped in a temple in Wan Chai. Since then it has attracted a growing local following, because Wong Tai Sin is known to be a deity of giving, who will always grant a worshiper´s wish. The present Wong Tai Sin temple was built at Sik Sik Yuen in 1921 and has since been extensively enlarged and refurbished.

The current temple is an excellent example of a traditional Chinese temple. Its major attractions include the main hall and Sam Shing Tong which is devoted to Lu Dong Bin, Kwun Yam (Goddess of Mercy) and Guan Di, a general revered for his fairness, righteousness and scholarly knowledge. There is also a portrait of the great Confucius.

Most people visiting the temple come to assess their fortune by using fortune sticks, and there are even some of English speaking soothsayers who can help visitors interpret the fortune sticks.
