The busy Wong Tai Sin Temple is one of the most famous Taoist shrines in Hong Kong.

The daily life of Hong Kong people is colorful. Using the oldest tram system as well as a state-of-art subway, celebrating the Chinese New Year and Christmas alike, the local people have much to enjoy. The most dynamic city in China, Hong Kong offers opportunities but also generates stress. Maybe that is why this city is named the Oriental Pearl, for no pearl can develop without causing irritation to the clam.

It is reported that the temperature will go down around 15C, but not cold at all. You could wear a shirt and thin jacket there. For shopping, I think you could go the Citygate Outlets in Tung Chung, or these shopping plaza located in Tsim Sha Tsui and Causeway Bay, such as Harbour City and Sogo.

1. at the airport, you could take the bus A21 and get off at the 8th station called Sino Center, Nathan Road. The hotel is located to be opposite to the bus stop. 2. You could take the metro from Mong Kok to reach Central directly. Then, u could walk to Peak Tram Terminal.
3. Hong Kong is a duty free city, so you don't have to apply for taxi refund specially.
