The first written account of the village dates from 1819 when it was listed as one of the two villages on Hong Kong Island. With many of the villages still living in the tin-roofed houses with a street of makeshift market stalls, the village is included on 2014 World Monuments Watch to raise awareness of its significance and scarcity in the modern metropolitan Hong Kong. Since the following year, with support from corporation, and in-partnership with the non-profit organization, the villagers have been setting up and launching a program to restore and reuse one of its historic house to become the heritage interpretation center.\r\n\r\nJoin this tour leads by their villager to hear firsthand stories about growing up in this village and their memories of the Dairy Farm surrounding the village which used to provide Hong Kong with fresh milk. Hong Kong artist Mr. Hon Chi-fun, 97 whose artworks are showing at the Asia Society Hong Kong Center was one of the residents of the village and spent his childhood in the village and the farm.\r\n\r\nDue to the space constraint of the village and keeping the residential area peaceful, there are limited seat available.
