Nam Chung Village (南涌村)

At the end of Wilson Trail 10 lies a quiet village called Nam Chung that is isolated from the outside world. You can see farmlands, old houses, fish ponds and temples here.

Take some time to explore this village of profound culture and experience how time flies in front of you. Yeung Uk (楊屋), Cheng Uk (鄭屋), Lo Uk (羅屋), Cheung Uk (張屋) and Lei Uk (李屋) are the 5 indigenous families from Hakka (客家). But nowadays, people have left the village to the city to make money. Most of the houses now are inhabited only by some lonely old folk and occasional illegal immigrant. Descendants only return to the villages at festivals.

To get to Nam Chung, take mini bus 56K from Fanling MTR station.

In 2003, I moved to Hong Kong with a dream of traveling around the world. Later I found out, HK is an amazing "mini world". Other than skyscrapers, a few steps outside the modern city, it has steep hills, winding coastlines, outlying islands, millions of years volcanic rocks, remote beaches, unspoilt fishing villages, secret waterfalls, wild animals and ancient forests. Follow me now to explore the Hong Kong less traveled.
