Description

In this 4-hour private tour, you will go off the beaten path to explore the New Territories of Hong Kong. Focus is placed on the historic Ping Shan Heritage Trail, starting with Hong Kong's oldest pagoda, Tsui Shing Lau. Thereafter, you will take an extraordinary journey through three villages, old temples and ancestral halls. Finally, learn about Hong Kong's local culture and day-to-day life in the fascinating urban Yuen Long District. By the end of the tour, you'll experience a different side of Hong Kong that you never knew existed!

Meet your licensed tour guide at Tin Shui Wan MTR Station at 10am to begin your 4-hour private walking tour of the New Territories. The tour covers Ping Shan Heritage Trail, which has been populated by the Tang people since the late Yuan dynasty (1271-1368), as well as a lively and vibrant local neighbourhood, Yuen Long. New Territories is the area between urban Kowloon and Mainland China where close to 50% of the population lives. As such, you'll be missing a lot if you don't explore this area!

Among many of the attractions you will see include:

  • Tsui Shing Lau Pagoda, Hong Kong's oldest pagoda
  • Shrine of the Earth God, which protects villages and homes
  • Sheung Cheung Wai, a 200-year-old walled village
  • Yeung Hau Temple, dedicated to the deity Hau Wong
  • Tang Ancestral Hall, where you'll learn about the importance of Ancestral worship in our Chinese culture
  • Yu Kiu Ancestral Hall, a place where children of Ping Shan villages used to study
  • Kun Ting Study Hall, an architecture that reflects beautiful craftsmanship
  • Ching Shu Hin, an old guesthouse for scholars and prominent visitors
  • Hung Shing Temple, popular among fisherman
  • Old Ping Shan Police Station, a Grade II Historic Building
  • Yuen Long District, a lively neighbourhood where you'll learn about the everyday life of a local.
The tour ends at 2pm at Yuen Long MTR Station. Please note that this is a walking tour, where you explore the neighborhoods on foot and by public transport. Food and transport, if any, are not included.
