Description

Here in the village, the world slows down and takes a more leisurely pace with a strong sense of community around every corner. Not only do all of the neighbors know one another, they work together to keep their village working like a well-oiled machine.

During your adventure to one of Hong Kong’s largest cluster of villages, the Deputy Director of Welfare of this community will take you through study halls and ancestral halls – Grade I, II, and III historic buildings might we add – that are generally closed off to the public. His unparalleled knowledge and endless stories of the villages will leave you with a colorful portrait of this quaint area.

These study halls and ancestral halls were the cornerstone of these villages and served as the watering hole for the community. Not only will you have exclusive access to them, you will truly get to experiences them during your Chinese calligraphy lesson in the study hall.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to peek into the life of a villager and see how they welcome everybody into their community, including you.
