HK - Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree


Another famous tourist attraction in HK is the Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree. If you do watch HK series you will definately come across this particular tree.

This wishing tree is actually located near a temple in Lam Tsuen. If you do not watch those HK series, you must be wondering what is so special about this tree, right? Ok, this is a wishing tree ie most HKers believe that you can make your wishes come true by throwing a scroll onto the tree. The scroll also known as "bao die" ie colored wishing paper. You have to write your wish(es) on the paper and wrapped it up from bottom to topThe "bao die" will be tied to three oranges. Once the "bao die" is tied properly, the wisher can tossed it up to the tree, the higher it hung to a branch the more higher chances of your wishes do come true.

But now, the public is advised not to toss the "bao die" onto the tree because the tree is too old and going to collapse :( What the management at that area advised is to hang the "bao die" at a board next to the trees.

So, who wants to come to Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree to make their wishes do come true?
