Entrance Hall

Ping Shan, Hong Kong view map

"Ching Shu Hin", an ancient guest house that was built in 1874.
The Tangs (A family in Hong Kong with long history) had used this guest house
to accommodate prominent visitors and scholars.

Ching Shu Hin is a two-storey green-brick building
decorated beautifully with traditional Chinese art work.
It fully demonstrates the impressive beauty of an elegant residence of the local gentry.

The angle of shooting of this Guest House is very well chosen. The light from the semi-circular gateway draws ones attenttion to the Chinese characters on the wooden panels. A very beautiful picture, CM
