TOUR DETAIL

Our public guided tours introduce how the historical, architectural, cultural and social significance of the Grade 2 historic building Mei Ho House is conserved and passed down through the Revitalising Historic Buildings Through Partnership Scheme (Revitalisation Scheme). Visitors will learn about the history of Hong Kong’s public housing development, the way of life and interesting stories of early resettlement block residents, and the architectural features of Mei Ho House. Our docents will also explain the role of the Hong Kong Youth Hostels Association in the Revitalisation Scheme and how the project has managed to balance conservation and adaptative redevelopment.
