Sheung Yiu Family Walk is an attractive place where everything is rolled into one – here visitors can have a barbecue, go on a hike, and learn about natural habitats and Hong Kong folklore. One may take the popular route of entering from Pak Tam Chung Nature Trail, which skirts along the river, before visiting the Sheung Yiu Folk Museum, a Hakka village called Sheung Yiu Village in the 19th century. Inhabited by the Wong clan, the village had a watchtower overlooking the entrance, a row of eight houses, and a lime kiln that produced lime by burning coal mined in the vicinity. Both the village and the lime kiln have been classified as declared monuments, displaying various farming implements and furniture to recreate the atmosphere and environment of the Hakka village. The woods along the tranquil Sheung Yiu Family Walk look out on the rolling hills of Tai Cham Koi on the north in the distance. Other highlights include a bay, mangroves, barbecue sites, and holiday camps, which make weekend trips easy to plan.
