It takes about an hour and a half to do and it's so interesting to see the historical side of Hong Kong. I think it makes a fantastic contrast to central and the big temples in Kowloon, I recommend this to... More

Interesting 800-year history of Tang family and others. Beautiful historic buildings and good written explanations of the history and culture, presented in English as well as Chinese.

It's off the beaten track - at least by HK standards. Therefore,if you're in HK for about 5 or more days, you should give this trail a visit. Overall, if you're interested in history and the culture of the ancient Tang people, this place will appeal to you.

Hong Kong is modern and vibrant. High rise buildings compose the skyline. Or you can pop to the islands to be closer to the nature. Ping Shan Heritage Trail worth a visit and you'll learn a bit of Hong Kong's history. The trail shows the historical houses of Tang clan and the livelihood. Less tourists and more space. http://hkindependent-traveller-croatia.blogspot.hk/2015/04/ping-shan-heritage-trail.html

If you want to see something different from the tourist spot, try this. 90% of the trial is with no difficulty and are close to each other, they are basically 10-15 mins away from each other. With the help of booklet , either can download or find on spot, it is like an adventure discovering the story of long pass... More

It was my second time visiting Hong Kong. I had already visited most of the main attractions (Victoria Peak, Po Lin Monastery etc) and was tired of hanging out in shopping centres. The weather was really hot, as it should be during the summer, which made me regret going for the trail to be honest. But as I followed the... More

It was wonderful to see such a different part of Hong Kong. Don't worry, there are still plenty of massive apartment buildings, but there is also a lovely little town with little trails and historic features. It stands out for me because it is so different from everything else we saw in Hong Kong

If you haven’t got a lot of time, don’t visit this trail - Hong Kong has a lot more to offer including plenty of other temples in less urbanised and dirty settings. However, if you have the time its not bad you just need to be ready for 50 mins each way and about 75 mins on the trail –... More

If you are a bit weary of the buzz in Hong Kong, this may well be the ideal trip for a day out (if the weather is a bit dodgy and you do not want to risk being on the Dragons Back Trail in poor weather). The heritage trail is very easy to reach via the MRT, is less than... More
