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

This was an off the beaten path visit, and well worth the time, if you are not going further into China. It was a reasonable MTR ride from Wanchai, and when we arrived, at the first place we received a map of the trail. We did it backwards, but it did not matter. We walked to each site on the... More

I started my journey from Ping Shan Tang Clan Gallery to Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda. While you're walking all the way to Tsui Sing Lau, you will see lots of small houses in village where people lives. About the temples, it was okay. A very small temple noting much to see. Like the Tang Ancestral Hall, Ching Shu Him Chamber,... More

If you are visiting HK without a trip to China before of after, you should visit this place without fail. Even if you are just tired of newly-built bustling HK and need some quiet old-style sightseeing, you should go too. It is so funny to see huge sky-scrapers overlooking the ancient pagodas and halls, but it is really one of... More

I was disappointed to see a small temple, a small ancestral hall and a small classical Chinese farmhouse. In mainland China just across the border (Guangzhou City) you can find better examples of ancestral halls (Chen Clan Academy in Guangzhou) superb temples (Six Bamyan Tree Temple in Guangzhou), Chinese farmhouse (all over China). I you just visit HK it just... More

Make the trip at least half a day to take it all in particularly if you are keen on history. The west rail line will get you there seemlessly and the trail proper is easy to follow and completed comfortably within 2 hours depending on your interest levels. Two particularly important sights are the Tsui Shing Laug Pagoda and the... More

The Ping Shan Heritage Trail makes a welcome change from the endless crowds and hustle of Kowloon. Easy to get to on the West Rail Line, the starting point (Tin Shing Lau Pagoda) is just across the road from Exit E of Tin Shui Wai MTR station. The trail is full of interesting sites, four of which really stand out:... More

Before HK became "rich and famous" under British rule it was a small village at the periphery of the Chinese empire. The heritage trail offers a trip back to these times. None of the sights you will see are particular spectacular, but you will understand how it all started. An interesting day (or half day) out for locals, not particular... More

We found it a bit tricky when we got to Sheung Long MTR station but a helpful local put us on track. We also found the visitor centre shut (Monday). Navigation required a bit of effort in places although we noticed a number of signs in strategic places which did help. The buildings looked interesting and we were encouraged to... More
