Tung Chung Street Life: Tung Chung Fort


Tung Chung Fort 

The exciting historical Tung Chung path stretching down to Tung Chung Bay is a scenic route you don’t want to miss. My first station is Tung Chung Fort dating back to the Ching dynasty. The fort was built with a purpose to fend off salt smugglers, and was stationed with hundreds of soldiers. After the troops were withdrawn, the fort underwent a number of transformations, serving as police station and then a public school. Now a declared monument in Hong Kong, the fort has six muzzle-loading cannons resting along the wall on the north entrance gate, some of which have been engraved with manufacturing dates in Chinese.
