Fok Hing Tong, Hong Kong Society
for the Promotion of Virtue

8–9 Tai Pak Terrace

The society was established in 1924 first on the fourth floor of 6–7 Tai Pak Terrace named as Fok Hing Tong. Inspired by Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism, it promotes the study and practice of ethics and virtues. Its membership increased rapidly in a few years’ time and therefore in 1927, the society bought the neighbouring number 8–9 as permanent premises. The buildings are typical Chinese tenement houses of five storeys. Each floor has a balcony enclosed with intricate iron railings. The central part is articulated with a slight convex curve. The ground floor is usually rented out for income. These buildings represent the Chinese settlement housing type of the area in the early 20th century. The society later set up a branch office in Tuen Mun.
