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

การท่องเที่ยวฮ่องกงจัดสรรเส้นทางวัฒนธรรมท้องถิ่นสำหรับนักท่องเที่ยวมากมายหลายเส้นทาง เส้นทางหนึ่งที่น่าสนใจคือเส้นทางมรดกผิงซาน การเดินทางสะดวกนั่งรถไฟฟ้า MTR ไม่ถึงชั่วโมงก็ถึงแหล่งวัมนธรรมดังกล่าว ระหว่างทาง มีมรดกวัฒนธรรมให้ชมเป็นระยะ แบ่งได้ 2 ประเภท คือ วัฒนธรรมบนเส้นทาง จำนวน 12 แห่ง ได้แก่ 1.

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

For me, this was the highlight of my recent trip to Hong Kong. This is not for everyone. I do not recommend this if: (1) You have been to China and you expect to see majestic jaw-dropping sights similar to the Great Wall or the Forbidden City on this trail. (2) You are only going to be in Hong Kong... More

This trail isn't worth the visit unless you're a member of the Tang clan or a geek for Hongkong history. The temple, hall, pagoda etc is unimpressive and mostly new rebuilt ones. The pagoda is the only we thought slightly impressive and gives this trail a two-star mark...

Sure it's kind of out of the way for the average visitor, but I assure you it's definitely worth your time. I alighted at Tin Shui Wai MTR and crossed the road to get to the first stop of the trail, which is the pagoda. The female guard of the pagoda then instructed me to walk further down the road...

It is so far out but was stunning. The old Pagode and study halls are very interesting. I was lucky an old man in his eighties was guiding me as a volunteer. Beautiful and at the and of the trial you can see China!!!

This is our first venture into New Territories 新界;, despite our frequent trips to HK. We alight at 天水圍站 Tin Shui Wei sta., a bare 30 mins where we start from YMT. The first interesting stop will be the pagoda which is just behind exit E. Old and historical but rather small. Understand it was originally 7-level high, compared to... More

It's not in the same vein as the grand big Buddha or the Hong along skyline, but wandering around the ancestral halls and other local sites is a really interesting day out. Well worth it
