Visiting local historic sites, monuments, museums, and art exhibits is the natural thing to do whilst traveling abroad as our lives are short compared to the long history of human civilization. The architecture and relics can tell us stories about the past. Therefore, we should do the same to the city we grew up in, to understand her in-depth through visiting historical sites. Thanks to our ancestors who have stuck to our heritage, Hong Kong, after being colonized for over 100 years, is still full of historical traces for us to observe. But only if we are willing to look for them. They can be found in the streets or rural areas. Even paying attention to the little details such as a road sign, a pillar box, a temple, an old Tong Lau, an abandoned house with green tiles in the rural areas, or an out-of-use factory, we can learn a few stories about our past.
These pages will introduce over 40 historic sites in Hong Kong Island
, the New Territories and the Outlying Islands
, which have great historical value and can be easily accessed. Some have kept their original appearances, and some have been restored with new elements added. So whatever way you choose, visiting them alone or with a few friends and family, joining guided tours or taking a stroll, spending your free time there will take you back to the olden days of the city.
There is also information on guided tours
organized by different groups for a more engaging, value-added visit.
