Servants Passage

Servants' Passage

Ping Shan, Hong Kong view map

In the old days, servants were not allowed to enter the house through the entrance hall.
This narrow passage connects a side entrance to the kitchen and
the bathroom of the guest house “Ching Shu Hin”.
It reflects the feudalistic system in the old China.
