Wong Tai Sin is a tiny, underprivileged district of Kowloon. Over 86% of its residents live in subsidised housing. It was the landing place for many newly arrived Chinese immigrants in the 1940s, and the original shantytowns have given way to government estates. This area has four major parks and is well-served by public transportation. It also has two religious sites attract visitors: the Chi Lin Nunnery, a working nunnery that is open to the public for prayers; and the ornate Wong Tai Sin Temple, surrounded by high-rise buildings.
