Where to stay in Hong Kong
There are limited cheap Hong Kong accommodation options, although the most popular place to stay for people on a budget is the Chunking Mansion and the Mirador Mansion. These buildings are famous for the amount of tiny hotel rooms located within them. We stayed at the Kowloon New Hostel in the Mirador Mansion and definitely recommend this building over the Chunking Mansion as it’s much less chaotic and on a quieter street. If you’re not on a budget then you’ll have endless 5 star hotels to choose from. A popular area close to many attractions and the train station is Tsim Sha Tsui.

As you enter Man Mo Temple Hong Kong, you will notice a strong burning and incense smell which stays with you right up until you leave. At first the smoke may be a little overwhelming but you’ll get used to it after a bit. The temple is full of lanterns with red cards hanging from the bottom. As you look up, you will notice the ceiling is full of larger, burning incense which create large clouds of smoke. The clouds of smoke go hand in hand with the light rays that shine through the holes in the ceiling as the smoke enhances the light rays.
The interior of the building complex is largely decorated with the colour red and classic Chinese script and statues. You will also hear many people banging the large gong which is located on the wall. Towards the back of the temple you will find people praying and making wishes.
