Visit this place for a bit of history of the the village life in HK long ago. The wall around the village is still in good condition including the watch tower, read up on the history and look out for the mismatched main gate and signpost of it history. Sadly, most of the houses have been upgraded and looked modern... More

A big group of us decided to view a Yuen Long Wai Tsuen (walled village) before a private restaurant dinner. Parking available in a public carpark about 50 m down the road but not outside the village which is just for residents. Visitors are asked to pay HK$3 before entry, presumably to help with preservation. The village is extremely cramped... More

It looks interesting from the outside with houses rising above the walls. Inside, there are very narrow alleys and a small temple. That's it. I don't think it was worth the train trip out but you can walk around this whole area for a glimpse of suburban life if you really want.

There is nothing to see here. Came here to look for something to photograph... The wall itself is interesting and in tact and there is some signage near the playground outside the compound that explains that this is one of the oldest surviving walked villages in Hong Kong. Except, it is so small, I am not sure if you can... More

Now straight up this isn't a tourist attraction. that is the reason i chose to visit here, i'ts a bit away from everything which is great, you need to walk about 10-15mins from the MTR but on the way you get to see how life is in the outskirts. It is merely a little walled village that has had it's... More

When comparing the building some 10 to 15 years ago, today's Kat Hing Wai is fully occupied by residents buildings, TV antenna and drainage pipes...the protection river has been filled with a long pond of water, planting with lotus leafe. The protection and maintenance of such historic castle is not enough. But you are the first time visiting it, the... More

It is hard to find if you travel out by local train. We walked up and down Kam Sheung Road asking any one we could find where it was. We only found it as my husband noticed different coloured roof across some other building. We we made it there, the outer wall and entry did indeed look old. However once... More
