13 Hong Kong Iconic Man Mo Temple Images

Located on Hollywood Road on the Island, very crowded, very smoky and somewhat iconic!

Honestly, I am not a fan of the Man Mo Temple for the very simple reason that it is very small and because it is on the coach tour route it can get very crowded.. all day, every day! I do go once a year just before Chinese New Year when local people make their yearly pilgrimage and the whole atmosphere changes. 

I cannot deny that you can get some fantastic images at the Temple, it is famous for it's incense coils so dramatic images are there for the taking. 

It is not an easy place to get to (located on Hollywood Road on Hong Kong Island) but if you want colourful images and a quick peek into local culture then this is a great place to go. 

The Man Mo Temple is a visual thing, so no text to go with this set of images.

 Generally this Temple is never really filled with local folk, Chinese New Year is a different matter

I do personal walking tours around Hong Kong, I am on the streets every day and I have a somewhat interesting perspective of this wonderful city I have called my home for 37 years. My private walking tours are perfect for visitors who want a detailed overview of Hong Kong prior to exploring on their own and for people who are only here for a day or two who want to make the most of their limited time here.

Many clients book me for their first full day in Hong Kong, they get to see the best that Hong Kong has to offer + a crash course on our wonderful public transport system and then they go exploring for the rest of their stay armed with step by step instructions and recommendations from me....

...oh, and if you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides.
