I read the reviews here but thought that maybe it's just people being way too critical? Nah, the majority is right. This place isn't really worth the trek to get to. I think if the signage was done better it would have yielded a better...More
The maps are confusing, the route is not clearly marked. The buildings are not identified by name. I was lucky to find a Chinese speaking couple who asked locals for directions all the time. Signage & maps need to be improved.
The historical buildings are...More
The Ping Shan Heritage Trail in the New Territories gives relief from the crowds if you're staying in HK long enough to have covered the touristy bits and are interested in history. Go to the Tourist Info Office at the Kowloon side Star Ferry and...More
Trekked out the Ping Shan Heritage Trail by train from Hong Kong (about an hour) and well worth the trip. A nice little trail (about a mile) with fascinating old buildings strewn around a small village. Very close to the train station, so handy.
Went to Ping Shan with high expectation to see some old preserved village but some how got dissapointed with the place. Spent less than an hour walking around the place before we headed to Wetland Park which is nearby.
Only one chaa chan teng available...More

Of all the things you can do in Hong Kong, this should be near the bottom of your list. The buildings are run down, little to no explanation, and poorly marked. I'm happy I came, so now I can share with others to avoid a...More

I think you only need 2-3 hours for the trail. It would be hard to reach the starting point of the trail before it gets dark if you arrive in HK at 2pm. I advise you to explore the streets of Hong Kong and take the tram to the Peak on your day of arrival, then maybe see this trail the following day (also this trail is not one of the main sights in HK, but I still recommend it). Hope this helps!
