Lantau, as one of the earliest settlements in Hong Kong, possesses a wealth of historical and cultural heritage, as well as well-preserved traditions.

There are six declared monuments such as Fan Lau Fort and Tung Chung Fort constructed in the Qing dynasty and also other graded historic buildings on Lantau. Each of them has its own character but different architectural and aesthetical value. All of them are reflections that showcase a particular piece of our history.

Besides, there are also a number of sites with religious value, such as the renowned Po Lin Monastery, and some activities with significant cultural value, for example, the Tai O Dragon Boat Water Parade, which was inscribed onto the third national list of intangible cultural heritage in 2011.

Great efforts have been put into studying and compiling written records and oral history in the building of this thematic website. We hope you will enjoy reading these stories and take an interest to learn more about the unique culture and history of Lantau.
