Yaumatei Walk - May 3
From Wednesday 3rd May / 08:45 AM
To Wednesday 3rd May / 12:00 PM
Once your booking and payment is received you will be sent details of where to meet up
Come and explore this intriguing and colourful part of Kowloon. Yaumatei is home to the famous Tin Hau Temple which dates from the 1820s. Along with the banyan-tree shaded square in front, the Tin Hau Temple has been a key focus of Yaumatei community life for decades.
Along the way we will see the historic Yaumatei police station, explore Shanghai and Reclamation Streets which are vital adjuncts to the local restaurant trade; every possible variety of cooking pot, wok, cleaver and kitchen utensil can be found here. Nearby, we will see the Yaumatei Theatre, the oldest cinema in Kowloon which has now been renovated.
Locally-famous for decades, Yaumatei’s gwo-laan, where most of Hong Kong’s fresh fruit is traded, is an essential part of life and not to be missed. While the gwo-laan is at its bustling, noisy best in the small hours, there is still much of interest to be seen by mid-morning. Surviving old buildings nearby provide a home to vanishing occupations and businesses which will all be explored along the way.
Details on where to meet for the walk will be sent to you once your booking and payment is received.
