in Hong Kong - New Territories
Located at the south-west corner of Yuen Chau Kok,
Wong Uk Village was founded some 200 years ago by
a couple surnamed Wong from Xingning county of Guangdong
province. In the 19th century, the island was a
major station for travellers and goods plying between
Guangdong and Kowloon. The village became a trading
station for merchants and travellers, which prospered
until the late 19th century. Most of the old buildings
of the village fell into ruins or demolition due
to the reclamation of Tide Cove for the development
of the Sha Tin New Town. What remains is this old
house standing as the only reminder of the history
of Yuen Chau Kok. The building is a two-storey green-brick
structure of about 100 years old, with fine mural
paintings and traditional decorations.
