We are delighted to offer you a new event with Jason Wordie.
Situated in the north western New Territories, the old market town of Yuen Long, now a sprawling New Town conurbation, has much of interest. In particular, this is “the real Hong Kong”, and over a short walk and delicious dai pai dong dinner, we will experience aspects of local life, and excellent food, that many long-term urbanites miss out on.
We will meet at Long Ping Station, Exit C (West Rail Line) at 18.15, and have an exploration of Yuen Long’s backstreets. Some reference will be made to the area’s obvious ethnic diversity, and its evolution over time; a large South Asian community makes their homes in the district.
After that, we will converge on Jason’s favourite backstreet dai pai dong at 19:30 and enjoy a delicious open-air Cantonese meal. After eating our fill, we will walk down to Yuen Long Station, past a few long-established businesses (including what is probably Hong Kong’s most famous bakery), in time for an easy connection back to the city.
Cost includes dai pai dong supper, beer and/or soft drink.
Time 6:15 PM - 9:30 PM
