Shoot My Travel- Hong Kong With a Local Photographer

Located on the southern coast of China, Hong Kong is filled with skyscrapers and green spaces. It offers visitors everything imaginable: amazing food experiences like full afternoon teas and five-star dim sum, shopping in modern malls and bustling markets, rooftop bars, Cantonese opera, and even cat cafes!<br><br>The parks are peaceful sanctuaries from the modern city. Do tai chi in Victoria Gardens, listen to bird song in Yuen Po Bird Gardens, and look for statues of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac in Kowloon Walled City Park. Finally, a trip up the tram to Victoria’s Peak, 1,300 feet up, offers views not to be missed.<br><br>Visit the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery, where a trek of 431 steps will reward you with more like 12,000 Buddhas and mischievous monkeys as well!<br><br>Whether you’re a shopaholic, foodie, hiker, meditator, or all of the above, Hong Kong is for you. Book one of our Hong Kong photographers and picture yourself in this small but mighty region!

...near the right hand side (as you look at it from the park) to get a sense of the history of this building. It’s fascinating to walk round, seeing how people still live in a communal environment but obviously be careful to be respectful as it’s their home!

Tsang Tai Uk (Big House of the Tsangs) is a hakka village that seems lost in time in modern residential community of Sha Tin. This is a grade 1 Historic building in Hong Kong and an interesting heritage attraction to consider seeing for those planning to spend time in Sha Tin during visits to Hong Kong. The original village here established around 500 years ago. However, the walled compound that you see dates back to the 1850s when it was constructed of granite, bricks and solid timber, giving Tsang Tai Uk the appearance that you will still see to this day. The village is rectangular in shape and surrounded by a wall which served as an important fortification during more turbulent times in Hong Kong's history. Within there are several rows of brick houses where residents live to this day. There is a corner tower within that is particularly interesting to see. You can enter and walk around Tsang Tai Uk. However, do keep in mind that residents still live here today and and this is their home. So be respectful and avoid taking pictures of people within. You'll find Tsang Tai Uk 5 minute walk east of the Che Kung Temple MTR Station.

This run down village was once built by a rich stone mason for his clan. There is a temple there and still some of the families live here. It's not well preserved. The streets are difficult to walk up. I am disabled and found most places to hard to get too. Even while we were here three people twisted their ankles and a woman cut her leg when the stones gave way underfoot. It does need preserving as once was a magnificent place. Any film maker would find it a fabulous set for a film.

Tsang Tai Uk is a (relatively) well preserved Hakka walled village in Hong Kong. Conveniently located in Shatin, it is still a living community with many residents. Those who are interested in the city's past would like to visit this place.

Its not as well preserved as it should be, but you can still see the history there. If you are around the area, after visiting che kung temple, its okay to go for a visit. if you are interested in villages like this, yuen long area probably have better preserved ones.
