The Lung Yeuk Tau Heritage Trail is an interesting collection of historic walled villages and other heritage attractions in the area of Fanling. This is something that will might be interesting for history and heritage attraction buffs who have done the sightseeing rounds in Hong Kong and are looking for less visited areas of the territory to explore. The Lung... More

One of the touted heritage trails, this is simply not worth the time or effort. The trail is impossible to find (there are no directions or sign posts or a map) and once you do figure out where to meander, there's simply nothing to see. It's a long, long MTR ride from Kowloon, plus a long walk or taxi ride... More

Not many people, even local HK’ers know this part of Hong Kong. On a chance opportunity my husband’s friends took us back to their childhood home. Their childhood home was a part of the Heritage Trail. Although we didn’t walk the whole trail, I’m glad that I can have a chance to see Kun Lung Wai (San Wai). We learned... More

I read Dave D's review of this walk before going (titled "Meh"), and I have to say that he is 100% correct. I will add that the walk is downright unpleasant, complete with snarling dogs nosing under corrugated metal fences, animal feces on the sidewalk, and speeding minibuses. On top of it all, almost all of the historic sites are... More

It's not fair to say this isn't interesting, but for the distance travelled it wasn't amazing. The walk is through a growing suburb, and it doesn't seem like a lot of effort is put into the preservation of the relics. If you want something unique, go along, but for me it was lacking.

I did the walled village section of the trail by Fanling and it was definitely a good experience--one of the best of my trip. It is about an hour outside Hong Kong, but not too difficult to reach with public transportation (and the trip through the New Territories is fun byitself). It certainly gave ma a sense of being someplace... More
