One of Hong Kong’s best-preserved walled villages is just a short walk from MTR Che Kung Temple Station. Built in 1847 by stonemason Tsang Koon-man, the compound was home to the Tsang clan, a Hakka family that had migrated to Hong Kong in the 17th century. You can still see the original granite, bricks and timber used to build the village. Guard towers were built on each of the four corners to protect against pirates, who ran rampant in Hong Kong until the early 20th century. This is still a living village, but visitors are allowed to explore the courtyard and the ancestral hall.
