Sam Tung Uk Museum


The Sam Tung Uk Museum is a 200-year-old walled village that was declared a historical monument in 1981 and restored. Occupying an area of 2,000 square meters, the symmetrical layout of the village resembles a chessboard with an entrance hall, an assembly hall and an ancestral hall at the central axis. With four individual houses in the middle, the village is completely walled in by rows of houses at the two sides and the back.
