Che Kung Temple


Former Song dynasty military commander Che Kung was famed for suppressing uprisings and keeping plagues at bay. He is also believed to have accompanied the last Song Dynasty emperor to Sai Kung in what is now the New Territories. He later became revered as a god. There are four Che Kung Festivals each year, the most popular of which is held on the second day of the first lunar month. This is when people crowd the temple to worship Che Kung, turn the fan-blade wheel of fortune, and beat the drum to wish for good luck during the coming year.

Shing Mun River


An iconic landmark of Shatin, the 7km-long Shing Mun River runs from Tai Wai through downtown Shatin and eventually extends into Tolo Harbour. A traffic-free bike path winds next to the river, allowing scenic strolls or bike rides along the coastline to Tolo Harbour before reaching Tai Mei Tuk. The River is also a popular haven for water sports like rowing, canoeing, kayaking and the world-famous festive dragon boat races. 

Hong Kong Science Park


Situated on the Tolo Harbour waterfront near the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Science Park is the innovation and technology hub of the Territory, attracting tech-related companies of all sizes and stages of development. Shaped like a golden egg, the Charles K. Kao Auditorium is indeed an Instagram-worthy landmark.
