This fishing village occupies the west coast of the island. Once surrounded by salt marshes transformed into fish parks, this village does not lack charm. It is one of the last villages on Hong Kong stilts. It was built and is populated by the Premiers, the first inhabitants of Hong Kong. This community of nomadic fishing for centuries in the waters of the territory. The site is a very pleasant step for lunch. We follow the main street in the heart of the stalls of dried fish and shrimp blocks before access to Kwan Tai temple, right in Kut Hing Hou Jie. It dates back to the th century and is dedicated to the god of War and Droiture. Small altars erected along the street are dedicated to the god of the soil. This practice has been going on for 1 500 years. We turn right on this street (No. 47) to see the temple Hau Wong, dated 1699, dedicated to a hero who mortgaged the last emperor Song of the Mongols. Take right after the bridge and continue up to the roundabout of small houses. Everyone knows everyone here. Houses, which are aluminium-covered to maintain freshness, are transmitted from generation to generation.
