Classic Reunion! Red-White-Blue is stationed in Mei Ho House!
“Red-White-Blue” is always known as part of local culture of old Hong Kong, representing the Hong Kong spirit of “Never Give Up”. Last year, Hong Kong Tourism Board transformed Sham Shui Po with “Red-White-Blue” vinyl pattern to promote the unique local characteristics of the district. As one of the most valuable historical architecture in Sham Shui Po, Mei Ho House also witnessed the persistence of last generation in Hong Kong. Thus, this year we decided to have a crossover between Mei Ho House and Red-White-Blue during YHA Mei Ho House Youth Hostel Open Day to continue the local spirit!
