  • Occasionally, it is felt that the original bay also has a flood of ancient temples, feeling a bit novel, perhaps Hong Kong people are always busy, can stop to see the ancient temples is also a kind of happiness, escape from the arrogance life, feel that the ancient temples are almost.

  • This heritage path will bring you to a number of Hong Kong-style historical sites, such as markets and historical buildings, which are important cultural relics of the local culture, some of which are more activated by the Government and interested in understanding the culture of Hong Kong.

  • The Wan Chai Heritage Trail was formed in 2009 in cooperation between the Wan Chai Revitalisation Initiatives Special Committee and the Hong Kong Urban Renewal Authority as a way to promote area history, heritage, culture and to preserve unique 19th century architecture styles found here that are fast becoming lost to Hong Kong. The Wan Chai Trail includes a host of interesting different historic buildings, temples and market places on or near Queen's Road East. These include The Green House (Burrow's street), Blue House, Yellow House, old Ruttonjee Hospital building, buildings Nos. 186-190 and the Old Wan Chai Market building. Two temples, around Queen's Road are also included. These are Hung Shing Temple and Pak Tai Temple (Lung On Street) as well as several open market areas, Cross Street, Tai Yuen Street and Gresson Street. Other trail inclusions are the historic Pawn and Ovologue buildings on Johnston Street, building No 18 and Nam Koo Terrace on Ship Street as well as the nearby Starstreet Precinct. Overall, you can stroll the area and see each of these heritage buildings and sites in around 2-3 hours depending if you stop at any neighbourhood restaurants or bars. The Pawn is now a popular bar/restaurant and there are quite a few options on Ship Street and within the recently developed Star Street Precinct.
  • It was not clear which part that called as "trail". I went to the blue house cluster but it just a gallery. Not really happy with the "trail" definition.
