Social Enterprise Summit 2018


Many Chinese immigrated to Hong Kong from the mainland in the late 19th Century and lived in Sheung Wan. Poor living condition resulted in high death rate and funeral customs from different parts of China were carried out in this district. The tour will lead you to go through a “death journey” to learn more about local belief towards death, funeral rituals, the past lifestyle of Hong Kong people in the district, and the development of public health care.
