Hong Kong Heritage Fiesta 2018: A Peek Into Historic Buildings
Why We Recommend it
Sixteen well-preserved heritage buildings associated with serving the community will open their doors to the public, offering glimpses into the history of Hong Kong.
The Heritage Fiesta offers the chance to explore Hong Kong buildings connected to the city’s community service, while learning about their histories and architectural styles.
Participating historic buildings include the Old British Military Hospital (opened in 1907), which is now home to Mother’s Choice, an organisation which provides service to pregnant teenagers as well as children without families in Hong Kong; Island House (1906), government quarters-turned-Conservation Studies Centre; and Tung Wah Coffin Home (established in the early 1870s), a former hospital and temporary storage space for coffins and urns that has won an UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation in 2005.
Guided tours will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors will also be able to collect special stamps at the participating historic buildings.
