I have traveled to Hong Kong over the last 45 years and was not aware until recently of the small, 2000 year old Han Dynasty Tomb tucked away in Cheung Sha Wan. The Tomb site is easy to get to using the MTR and a short, well signed walk through a densely populated part of the City sees you at... More

It is a very small museum showing a tomb of Han Dynasty. The tomb itself is very small and empty. You can see the inside of tomb through a small glass window. There are also some small show rooms outside the tomb showing how the tomb was discovered in 1955 and also some ancient tools. You may spend about 10-15... More

This tomb was discovered in 1955 in Kowloon. It is very small, only 4 rooms, and probably belonged to a man who had something to do with coastal trade. The 4 chambered tomb was empty when discovered, and, in truth, not many goods were found within it -some pottery, & a few bronze vessels.The "museum" contains copies of the items... More

This a a small Han dynasty tomb in the middle of a busy housing area. You can only have a peek into the tomb trough a glass door, but can't go inside (which would be very uncomfortable as the ceiling is very low). As small museum explains the background and shows some of the ceramics found, however: the best pieces... More

This well-kept place is a nice diversion, but shouldn't be a destination. The actual tomb is empty: you can peek in and see some ornamental bricks, but that's about it. The museum has some old relics (pieces of pottery, a small clay house) from this and other sites, laid out in a rather bland row. Adorning the walls are larger... More

Hong Kong isn't exactly known for breathtaking historical finds but considering what little they had, they have done an excellent job of making this more interesting than it really is. It is free and there is a nice garden next door. While it certainly is not a must-see for those short on time, it makes a nice diversion.

The museum is relatively small and would take about 20 minutes to walk through. We took the subway and walked a few blocks to get to. My local friend hasn't been there so it was a nice trek to check out some history in Hong Kong. Nothing too fascinating about this tomb though the museum is decent. Free admission to... More

The Tomb is a relic of the Han Dynasty and constructed AD 25-220. The attraction is significant but not well known. It is a worthwhile investment in time particularly for those who wish to see history and understand and view the Chinese old ways and the beginning of housing estates in Hong Kong. One needs to get to the Cheung... More

We walked about 10-15mins from the station to this place passing the Hans garden. It was really amazing as to how they built this place with the bricks and able to build something curve.... Very amazing. It was quite small but an interesting to take about an hour to see.

The Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb and Museum (free) is a little known attraction just 5 minutes walk from the Cheung Sha Wan MTR in the Sham Shui Po area of Hong Kong. Here you can learn about the discovery of the Han Dynasty tomb (AD 25-220) in 1955 when the area hillside was being levelled for residential construction, take... More
