Built by a wealthy stone mason for his family in this what was the idyllic countryside in 1870's. Rather unusual architectural design, most residents are the descendants of the clan. Worth taking a look if you are cycling round the New Territories.

Surprise surprise, this is not a tourist attraction but a place where people live! Anyway, a very nice authentic piece of Hong Kong very different from busy and packed Kowloon or upscale European-styled Central.

The history behind the traditional Hakka fortified village and the fact that it still remains and is used by local residents to this day is impressive. However, it doesn't seem there is much interest in making the Tsang Tai Uk village tourist friendly at this...More

This is a historic and interesting building, but not really a tourist attraction. Building started in mid-1800's at the time of British colonisation of Hong Kong. It is a classical Hakka fortified village with thick outer walls, corner gun towers, and agricultural fields for defence....More
