TripAdvisor is home to some 660 million reviews, and not all of them are happy ones. We already detailed some of the harshest reviews of Hong Kong here but, sad to say, there’s plenty more where they came from. From deadly temples to ‘surly waitresses and slimy cold food’, here are more scathing reviews of local landmarks.

RECOMMENDED: If you want to know what makes real Hongkongers mad, you can find that out here. Maybe we should add TripAdvisor reviews to that list.

11 of the harshest TripAdvisor reviews of Hong Kong

Lan Kwai Fong
  • Things to do
  • Lan Kwai Fong

LKF is trying to tidy up its image but it’s still a love it or loathe it kind of place. This reviewer clearly knows where he stands.

Avenue of Stars
  • Attractions
  • Tsim Sha Tsui

This Tsim Sha Tsui landmark has been under renovation for yonks. Fingers crossed when it reopens it rates better than it did here.

Chungking Mansions
  • Attractions
  • Tsim Sha Tsui

Poor old Chungking Mansions. Some people can’t see past its outdated reputation as a hive of scum and villainy, like this guest, whose full review declared, “If you’ve ever wondered what it was like too sleep in a crack den or brothel then here is the place for you.” They then helpfully listed the items one needs to spend a night there: ”A weapon of some sort; a rake of alcohol to help you get through the night; a hazmat suit to sleep in; a stab vest; a rape whistle; something heavy to barricade the door in your room.” You’ve been warned.

Lamma Island
  • Attractions
  • Lamma Island

Lamma Island is apparently doing its best to solve Hong Kong’s landfill woes by turning itself into a literal rubbish dump, according to this reviewer.
