Lai Chi Wo

Today I hiked in Lai Chi Wo.

Lai Chi Wo 荔枝窩 is a Hakka village near Sha Tau Kok, in the northwestern New Territories of Hong Kong. It is described as a “walled village” by some sources. Lai Chi Wo is located within the Plover Cove Country Park and near Yan Chau Tong Marine Park. The history of Lai Chi Wo dated back to 400 years ago. It was once the largest and most prosperous Hakka walled-village in the North-Eastern part of New Territories. There were around 1,000 residents in the most prosperous period.
