This is off the beaten track, located in the mainland New Territories district of Yuen Long. You kinda see a different side of the modern Hong Kong, something really refreshing and interesting. We started early morning with the MTR ride all the way to Tin...More

Of all the things you can do in Hong Kong, this should be near the bottom of your list. The buildings are run down, little to no explanation, and poorly marked. I'm happy I came, so now I can share with others to avoid a...More

Trekked out the Ping Shan Heritage Trail by train from Hong Kong (about an hour) and well worth the trip. A nice little trail (about a mile) with fascinating old buildings strewn around a small village. Very close to the train station, so handy. The...More

I followed the instruction on the Hongkong for tourist website and found my way to this trail. It wasn’t anything interesting except for the walled village where I can only take picture from outside.

National Trust this is not! It is a collection of historic buildings scattered in among modern high rise towers and rather down at heel car parks and cafes. However the ancient buildings themselves are often beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed the trail. It is quite...More
