From traditional fortune telling methods to hipster cafes that offer tarot card readings, here’s where to get your fortune told in Hong Kong.
Anxious about the future? With the past couple of years we’ve had, who wouldn’t be? If you’re curious to shed some light on your career prospects, love life, health or even past, believer or not, the right fortune teller just might be able to provide some interesting insights.
A long-standing Hong Kong tradition, seeing a fortune teller on Temple Street to have your palm read or fortune told by a bird is an experience in itself. But if you don’t understand Cantonese or have a friend who can help translate, a detailed reading might be hard to come by. Alternatively, we have a number of fortune tellers offering psychic readings in English.
Whether you’re ready to dip your toes in the world of fortune-telling or are looking for somewhere to go for regular readings, here’s our pick of the best places to go for fortune telling in Hong Kong.
