About the walk

We will be led by Michael Tsang on a walking tour that will take in examples of disappearing trades and industries such as those of salted fish, paper offerings, dried seafood, QiPao tailoring and Letterpress printing amongst others. These are the places that tourists sadly miss as they tend to concentrate on more major attractions and will be your opportunity to learn more of Hong Kong’s heritage before it is too late.

The walk will involve some climbing over footbridges and along Hollywood Road. Participants are, of course, advised to wear appropriate footwear, headgear and take their own water. A coach will take walkers from the letterpress workshop to the lunch venue.
