Tsuen Wan Walk - Oct 23

Event Closed

More Details

Originally a small mixed agricultural and fishing settlement in the pre-war years, Tsuen Wan grew into a significant industrial area from the late 1940s, and was further transformed by the construction of the Mass Transit Railway in the 1980s.

A surprising amount of pre-urban “village” Tsuen Wan still remains; much has been attractively conserved, and selected remnants will be explored on this walk. Likewise, enduring links to earlier industrial times – in particular Hong Kong’s once-important textile industry - can still be seen, and this industry’s evolution and decline will be discussed and evaluated.

The walk will conclude with an optional, self-pay lunch at one of the renowned roast goose restaurants at nearby Sham Tseng. Those having lunch will take a minibus from Tsuen Wan MTR after the walk ends to the restaurant.
