Law Uk Hakka House (14 Kut Shing Street, Chai Wan)

Law Uk is a simple Hakka residence built over 200 years ago by the Law family, whose ancestors settled in Chai Wan early in the Kangxi reign (1662-1722) of the Qing Dynasty. The Laws were poor peasants who grew rice as their livelihood. The village house is the only example left from the old farming villages which used to be in Chai Wan. It has been fully restored and is now a folk museum.
