Ping Shan Heritage Trail is the first of its kind in Hong Kong. Ping Shan Heung is one of the oldest area in the territory. The Tang Clan, one of the "Five Great Clans" in the New Territories, has been living in the area since the 12th century. Many splendid structures built in those days still remain today, witnessing historical and social developments over the years.

Stretching about 1.6 km in length, the Trail meanders through Hang Tau Tsuen, Hang Mei Tsuen and Sheung Cheung Wai, linking up a number of traditional Chinese buildings within easy walking distance. Unique attractions along the Trail include The Tang Ancestral Hall (Hong Kong's largest ancestral hall) and Tsui Sing Lau Pagoda (Hong Kong's only surviving ancient pagoda) and Yu Kiu Ancestral Hall, which were declared monuments in 2001; Yan Tun Kong Study Hall, which was declared a monument in 2009, Tat Tak Communal Hall, which was declared a monument in 2013; and several other historic buildings and traditional constructions.

Moreover, Visitors may visit Ping Shan Tang Clan Gallery cum Heritage Trail Visitors Centre to know more about the local folk culture and heritage along the Trail. The Gallery was formerly the Old Ping Shan Police Station, which was built in 1900 and was rated Grade 2 historic building in 2010.
