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 monuments 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), which were declared monuments in 2001; Kun Ting Study Hall, which was rated Grade 1 historic building in 2009; Hung Shing Temple and Yeung Hau Temple, which were rated Grade 2 and 3 historic buildings respectively in 2010; and several other traditional constructions.
