May 2017 Lai Chi Wo: Hong Kong’s Hidden Gem (Hong Kong Lawyer)

Despite its fall into obscurity, Lai Chi Wo is once again attracting attention and inspiring hope as the site of an experimental revitalisation project, which was launched in 2013. It is managed by the Policy for Sustainability Lab of the University of Hong Kong, partnered with the Hong Kong Countryside Foundation, Produce Green Foundation and Conservancy Association with funds from HSBC. With the help of this project, some local villagers have moved back to farm and receive visitors.
