Point of Interest
“Lung Yeuk Tau Heritage Trail To take this trail is to delve back into Chinese history. Visitors should allow at least an hour to walk this two-kilometre path as it is replete with historical buildings and structures, some from the 12th century, others from the 16th century. The walk takes in walled villages, ancestral halls, a study hall and a temple. Many belonged to the Tang Clan, the largest clan in the New Territories.”
