What travellers are saying
- Getting to Kadoorie: If coming from HK Island, take the East Rail Line to Tai Wo station, take a green taxi to Kadoorie Farm.
Suggested itinerary at Kadoorie: Buy your ticket at reception and get a shuttle bus ticket at the same time, wait for the shuttle bus outside the entrance (comes every 15 mins), take the shuttle to Stop 4 (Kadoorie Brothers Memorial Haven).
From Kadoorie Brothers Memorial Haven, take the Sky Trail (45-60 mins) to T.S. Woo Memorial Haven (near Stop 5)
From there, take Enkianthus Walk until you get to the washrooms. From there, find the cobbled path along the stream all the way back down (approximately 60-90 mins). Note that you'll need to cross roads at times but the continuation of the cobbled path will always be found nearby on the other side of the road.

- I was in Hong Kong for a conference, whose venue was in Hong Kong University's Centennial campus. I found the facilities very nice, modern, clean and practical, although the campus itself visually is nothing special. It's very practical that you can get directly in the campus from underground from the Metro.Written 16 June 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We took a family trip to the Ark on a less busy day.
The experience is OK, lots of life size animals, live bugs, a tarantulla, frogs a lonely tucan inside the ark. There is a nice kids playground with 3 slides outdoors , sadly completely empty.
Good for a half day trip to keep

- The Yan Tun Kong Study Hall is stop 8 on the Ping Shan Heritage Trail in the Yuen Long District. It is located along one of the small lanes east of the main trail through a heavily inhabited area just north of the Tang Ancestral Hall (stop 7). Surrounded by residencies, this is an interesting but somewhat difficult attraction to find so do make sure to have the self-walk trail map with you as street signage is not particular helpful until you arrive at the entrance of the study hall. Opening hours are 9am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm daily (closed on Tuesdays).
Historically, this Declared Monument building (2009) served as a traditional ancestral hall, a venue for teaching and examination preparations. Today, it continues to host seasonal festivities and clan gatherings. What you will see here is rather similar to that of the impressive Yu Kiu and Tang Ancestral Halls but on a noticeably smaller scale.
The study hall is a two-hall structure with only one open courtyard. The grey bricked facade is decorated with nice murals and ridge motifs. Within, there are lovely carved tuofeng (camel humps) motifs upon the wooden beams holding up the study hall roofs. There is a beautiful ancestral altar as well as information panels describing the restoration efforts that brought the building back to its original splendour in 2009.
Overall, well worth a few minutes to make sure you find and see the Yan Tun Kong Study Hall. With a trail map, it isn't too difficult to find your way there. Afterwards, return to the main trail and continue onwards towards the Old Well (stop 8) and Yeung Hau Temple (stop 9) just a few minutes away on foot.Written 18 October 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.
