By Time Out Hong Kong
Professor Joseph Ting, pre-eminent historian of Hong Kong, recommends architecture and streets that speak to the neighbourhood’s past
A pre-eminent scholar of Hong Kong history, Professor Joseph Ting sees Sham Shui Po as a district with a rich cultural heritage and a lot of sites and attractions that speak to the city’s east-meets-west past. Just take a stroll down Yen Chow Street, for example, and you’ll see neoclassical monuments such as the Sham Shui Po Police Station sitting side by side with Chinese-style tenement buildings known as tong lau. For those who are interested in the more recent history of Hong Kong, Professor Ting recommends visiting the Heritage of Mei Ho House museum, which features a fascinating exhibition on living and social conditions in Hong Kong since the 1950s.
