Happy Valley Cemeteries Walk
Fascinating stories of Hong Kong's past
Happy Valley contains one of Hong Kong Island’s most unexpected urban contradictions. Just across the way from the Hong Kong Jockey Club's racetrack, a picturesque string of cemeteries accommodates the dead of various religions: Muslim, Roman Catholic, Hindu and in the Hong Kong Cemetery (formerly known as the Colonial Cemetery) the graves are mostly - but not entirely – of Protestant Europeans; Russian Orthodox and followers of other religions without their own dedicated burial ground find a final resting place. Numerous pre-war Japanese residents are buried here – many graves are of young women.
On this walk we will explore the Hong Kong (Colonial) Cemeteries, and along the way learn about the contributions made by various distinct ethnic communities, over the past century and a half, to Hong Kong’s social and economic development.
