Six Days War of 1899

The British met with opposition from the local indigenous people in the New Territories when they came to claim their sovereignty over the newly acquired crown land. The local people met at the Temple, worked out the strategy of attack and defence, recruit local villagers and fought with the British for six days. Without modern arms and guns, the clever tactics of the local villagers surprised the British and eventually, Sir Henry Blake, the Hong Kong Governor at the time, went to visit the Tang clan to make peace. The tour will uncover the story, starting with the Man Mo Temple at Tai Po market to the indigenous village of the Tangs in Ping Shan.

Cost: HKD420.00/person (around 4-5 hours)

Remarks: minimum 15 persons required to operate the above tours.
