Tin Hau Temple

Highly recommended
This temple has been restored on numerous occasions and, now painted in bright colours, has a delightfully kitsch feel. Here, the patron saint of fishermen, Tin Hau, is worshipped with fervour, making for a moving atmosphere, as incense is burned and prayers are put in the form of messages and ribbons tied to trees. In the evening, fortune-tellers gather around the temple to read the lines on people's faces or their tarot cards, as karaoke is improvised beneath the banyan trees.
