Historical Sites in Hong Kong

Here's a list of Historical Sites in Hong Kong recommended by our experts:

Hong Kong has the most fascinating history. The city’s colourful Chinese heritage can be seen in many different forms across its landscape. The southern extremity of the Chinese realm, Hong Kong was once a turbulent place where wealthy Chinese clans defended themselves from pirates and bandits, and the heirs of a doomed dynasty made their last stand against usurpers. Hong Kong’s fate took a dramatic turn the morning a flag was planted in Possession Point in 1841. What Palmerston described as a ‘barren island’ blossomed and the events of this era forged a world city, leaving a visual and cultural mark with a very distinct quality. Make your Hong Kong trip with your family and friends extra special as you explore the vestiges of Hong Kong’s vivid Chinese tradition, culture and heritage. The grand, the elegant, the quirky – remnants of the city’s colonial past will be the backdrops to your Hong Kong travel experience. Make a wish at the wishing trees at the seven-century-old village Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree. On a Lung Yeuk Tau Heritage Trail, enjoy a scenic journey into the history of one of Hong Kong’s most powerful clans. Kowloon Walled City Park is a historical site one simply cannot miss – this peaceful park was once a lawless enclave!
