Cultural Tourism at Ha Tsuen

Project description

In collaboration with community partners, students participated in experiential learning activities and produced a set of tourist maps of Ha Tsuen.

Ha Tsuen is situated at Yuen Long in the New Territories. Historical records show that the Tang lineage has settled at Ha Tsuen more than six centuries. Nowadays, Ha Tsuen is where rural meets urban area and tradition meets modernity. In 2016, the government designated Ha Tsuen for village type development and a heritage trail under the plan of Hung Shui Kiu New Development Area. The district is about to experience dramatic changes in a few years.

With financial support from Gallant Ho Experiential Learning Centre, Rotary Club Hong Kong Sunrise and Roundtable Enterprise, students of the course “Tourism, Culture and Society” (second semester, 2016-2017) had experiential learning activities and critically discussed on the role of cultural tourism in heritage preservation and sustainable urban development at Ha Tsuen. Six theme tours were designed to introduce Ha Tsuen from different perspectives. A set of tourist maps was also published and distributed through community partners.
