Kwai Chung Stories
What do you think of when you hear the term "indigenous people" in Hong Kong? You may immediately think of the people who live in the northern part of Hong Kong, but in fact, with the rapid urbanization of Hong Kong over the past century, the indigenous people have been living among us. This time, let me introduce you to Emilie, an indigenous resident of a village in Kwai Chung. She will share a story of the village, which is so close yet so far away, while we enjoy some trendy snacks. Then, we will take a drive to see the current state of the village and visit the remains of what was once the third largest dairy farm in Hong Kong, along with its interesting anecdotes.
Kwai Chung was originally a fertile agricultural land, which gradually developed into an industrial area, and then a residential area. In terms of industry, it is dominated by the food industry, with many long-established food factories still operating there today. At the end of the activity, we will visit the more than fifty-year-old, well-known food factory#, Kau Kee, listen to their story, and even purchase some authentic Hong Kong-made ingredients for cooking at home.
#Food factory visit available for local group booking only.
