As a world-class eco-tourism project, the Wetland Park provides Hong Kong with wetland conservation, citizen education and a new tourist attraction. The 61-hectar Hong Kong Wetland park used to be an ecological mitigation area to compensate for the wetlands lost due to new town development. In 1998, the government decided to develop the Hong Kong Wetland park without compromising its intended ecological mitigation functions. It also enhances the intended function to a world-class conservation, education and tourism facility.


The Wetland Park demonstrates the biodiversity Hong Kong ecosystem. It’s easy to see birds, butterflies, dragonflies, amphibians, reptiles, and fish in the Reserve Area. Visitors can embrace the beauty of nature and explore the signs of life in the ecosystem. Don’t forget to visit the Wetland Interactive World in the Visitor Center.

Short Comments: Majority of the facilities inside the park are wheelchair friendly attractions, including ramps, lifts, wheelchair seats in the projection room, low height binoculars for wheelchairs, toilets for wheelchair users, and accessible parking lots. However due to safety concerns, wheelchairs users are not allowed to visit the Mangrove Boardwalk. Wheelchairs users can visit the rest of the facilities by passing through the passageway on the right of Mangrove Boardwalk. We have suggested the park management to add clear signs to show wheelchair users about the way of direction.

The Wetland Park provides excellent habitat for migratory birds in the winter. It’s the perfect time for bird watching between October to coming April.

Ping Shan Heritage Trail

For those who are interested in the traditional life in New Territories, it is suggested to visit the Ping Shan Heritage Trail. It is the first heritage trail in Hong Kong that consists of Hang Tau Tsuen, Hang Mei Tsuen, Tong Fong San Tsuen, Hung Uk Tsuen, Kiu Tau Wai, Fui Sha Wai and Sheung Cheung Wai, stretching for about 1.6 kilometers. You get to see numbers of traditional Chinese buildings such as ancestral halls, temples, study halls and pagoda for ancestral worship, clan gathering and education.


If you wish to get to the Ping Shan Heritage Trail from Hong Kong Wetland Park, you can take the MTR to Ping Shan Station or Tin Shui Wai Station. Even though it takes longer time to walk from Ping Shan Station, we highly recommend you to choose to get off at this station as you don’t need to go back the same way where you came from and there are more transport options at Tin Shui Wai Station.


There are signs of direction along the way to the Ping Shan Heritage Trail after you get off at Ping Shan Station. You will arrive at the Ping Shan Tang Clan Gallery cum Heritage Trail Visitors Centre if you turn to Ping Shan Chuk Lam Road from Ping Ha Road. The Centre is housed in the Old Ping Shan Police Station dated back to 22nd April 1899. It is one of the existing pre-war police departments in New Territories, which was also used for the headquarters for police dog unit and training center during later period. It was refurbished into Ping Shan Tang Clan Gallery in 1997. Although a number of barrier-free facilities are provided for visitors in the Gallery, it is necessary to walk on a long and steep ramp when going to the Gallery. It is suggested that wheelchair users consider whether they can cope with the ramp before setting off.


When you head along the Ping Ha Road and you will arrive at the Ping Shan Heritage Trail. There are architecture compound such as Kun Ting Study Hall, Ching Shu Hin, Tang Ancestral Hall, Yu Kiu Ancestral Hall and Sheung Cheung Wai. Take another turn on Tsui Sing Road and you will arrive at the final destination of the Ping Shan Heritage Trail- Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda. Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda is also named Kui Sing Pagoda, Wen Cheng Kok, or as the locals calls it, the Wen Ta for short. It was originally a feng shuistructure owned by the Tang Clan, who was one of the five renowned families living in New Territories at that time. According to the genealogy of the Tang Clan in Ping Shan, Tui Sing Lau Pagod has over 600 years of history and is the oldest existing ancient pagoda in Hong Kong. It used to be seven stories high, but the top four stories were destroyed by wind and rain, leaving the bottom three floors standing today.

Lau Fau Shan

Lau Fau Shan is famous for its seafood, especially oysters. This is due to its location at Deep Bay, which is close to the estuary of Pearl River, and the freshwater coming from the river makes it ideal to keep oysters. Due to contamination around the Pearl River Delta and urbanization, fishing industry at Lau Fau Shan, particularly oyster industry, has been reduction production. However it is still a hub where people go to just to have fresh oysters and seafood.


To get to Lau Fau Shan, you can take the MTR shuttle bus K65 from either MTR Yuen Long Station or MTR Tin Shui Wai Station. After you hop off the bus, turn left and you are at Lau Fau Shan Main Street, where there are seafood shops and restaurants. You may also come across some local traditional snacks. The end of the main street is the oyster fields and mud fields, from which you can view Shenzhen Bay as well as Shenzhen Bay Bridge. The view at sunset is truly spectacular and remarkable.
