The trail is easily found close to the metro station, but I would suggest downloading a map on your phone also, just in case. Great to see some authentic, non touristic gems from Hong Kong's forgotten past. The two temples at the main square are definitely worth seeing. They sometimes also have free volunteer guides at the temples (which also... More

The trail is very easy to get to using the metro but the start of the trail is poorly located, requiring a bit of hunting (look for the 3-storey pagoda down from the metro station) and the signs are inadequate. The temples and courtyard houses are interesting and the displays in the Tang cultural centre are excellent. Overall, it's a... More

This 'trail' was poorly signposted and in urgent need of some TLC. It's worth doing to see the tall pagoda at the start and in particular the ancestral halls half-way along, which are truly spectacular. However, other than that it's a rather frustrating wander round a dilapidated area. Also, eat at Thai Gather near the pagoda. Not on Tripadvisor unfortunately... More

You can find old infrastructures here in Ping Shan. Do not miss 鄧氏宗祠,愈喬二公祠,鄧族文物館 etc. You can also find special Hong Kong Style restaurant like 和記,華嫂冰室,屏山老地方,or even new style restaurants like F1 Cafe (racing car theme), Cafe 123 (run by famous designer 鄧達智)。Access to it becomes easy now since MTR Tin Shui Wai Station is just next to it.

It's a long trek from Kowloon or the island on the MTR out to the New Territories, but hardly worth it. Once you alight from the station, you're right there, but 'there' is dubious. There's very little to see. What there is is all free, but the pitch that this is an ancient wall city is completely bogus. It's a... More

I really enjoyed to see those different old monuments that gives to Hong Kong its special touch. Nevertheless, when its first time that show up there you will find it difficult not to lose the path as there is clearly a lack of directions on this trail.

The pictures from the discover Hong Kong website made the place look much better than it actually is. It doesn't look like any work was done to make the trail a better experience. Yes it is definitely not commercialised but visitors had to walk pass quite a fair bit of industrial spaces which didn't add to the experience. Signages were... More

The Ping Shan Heritage Trail is found in the Yuen Long area of the New Territories and includes a fair number of historic buildings in the old villages of Hang Mei Tsuen, Hang Tau Tsuen as well as Sheung Cheung Wai. The trail is 1.6 kilometres, starting from the Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda just outside the Tin Shui Wai MTR... More

To view a different aspect of Hong Kong life make sure you visit this Heritage Trail in the New Territories. It is easy to get to via train (only 30 minutes from Kowloon). Go to Tin Shui Wai station and take exit E3. This is important as we initially took exit E1 and couldn't find the starting point of the... More

I loved this place for some of the very same reasons that other reviewers didn’t like it at all, so (as always) you need to take the individual “styles” of travelers into consideration. I found the map & sign markers to be clear, and every “stop” on the trail has red banners hanging out side the door so you really... More
