Hidden away among high-rise apartment towers and busy highways, the past lives on in the New Territories..!.
Here you will discover a living museum shaped by the rise and development of the so-called "Five Great Clans of Hong Kong" (the Tang, Hau, Pang, Liu and Man).
Taking in historic sites around the New Territories, the Heritage Tour brings to life the customs and cultures of these clans and provides a fascinating glimpse of Hong Kong's rich heritage such as Tai Fu Tai -the opulent stately home built in 1865 by a scholar of the Man clan, Man Chune-luen, who was bestowed a title of Tai Fu (Mandarin) by The Qing Imperial government.
Nearby is Fan Tin Village where the Man clan members dwell. Lo Wai Walled Village & Tang Chung Ling Ancestral Hall.
A photo stop will be made at the Lo Wai Walled Village, the first walled village built by the Tang clan. The site was also declared a monument in 1997. Nearby is the Tang's Ancestral Hall, built in the 16th century, for clan rituals & ancestor worship.
Then a visit to the Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree - a big banyan tree that is popular among local villagers who come to burn joss sticks and make wishes under it.
Finally a quick stop at Man Mo Temple- dedicated to the gods Man (Literature) and Mo (Martial Arts) and the nearby Tai Po Market which used to be the trading ground of foods & goods around the New Territories and now is a thriving food market.
