Longshan is a very beautiful temple but not in a great area. I felt it was quite beautiful and worth the experience, but I witnessed a fight, a woman beating a dog, and a lot of aggression so be careful when you go!

Yes, there are 2-3 a few blocks from Longshan Temple on the left, right, and behind. Can't remember their names, but one of them is the famous 'Snake Alley' night market.
