Owner description: A typical Hakka fortified village built in 1848 as a stronghold for the Tsang clan.

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.

Built by a wealthy stone mason for his family in this what was the idyllic countryside in 1870's. Rather unusual architectural design, most residents are the descendants of the clan. Worth taking a look if you are cycling round the New Territories.

Surprise surprise, this is not a tourist attraction but a place where people live! Anyway, a very nice authentic piece of Hong Kong very different from busy and packed Kowloon or upscale European-styled Central.

Might be disappointing if you want to see walled houses entirely traditional. The layout is meant to be traditional; however, the walls of many core families have been renovated and you see patches of different colours with eye sores such as air-conditioners and aluminium window frames.
