Exploring Off The Beaten Path Hong Kong: Pai Tau Village

Visiting Po Fook Hill, the 10,000 Buddha Monastery, and the hills around Pai Tau Village

Sha Tin is not only great for immature puns (I Sha Tin your shoe), it also has some worthwhile attractions. You can check out the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, or the the oldest walled village Tai Wai, there’s also the horse racing track, the well maintained Sha Tin Park with its gardens and grandstand, and there are plenty of villages that have a charm that you won’t get in the densely populated downtown. One of these is Pai Tau village.
