Lai Chi Wo

Lai Chi Wo

The 300-year-old village of Lai Chi Wo was once one of the most affluent hamlets in the northeastern New Territories. Mostly made up of Hakka people, it also has one of the oldest surviving feng shui woodlands in Hong Kong. The village features a God of War temple and a mangrove habitat with ancient vegetation, including huge interlocking-branch trees, hollow trees and ‘five-finger’ camphor trees.

Lai Chi Wo can be reached as part of a country park tour and a Geopark tour.
