Yim Tin Tsai
Yim Tin Tsai has experienced different phases of prosperity, decline and revival. Each phase in the past contains the memories and emotional attachment of the villagers to Yim Tin Tsai. The villagers’ appreciation of their rural culture has constantly promoted the development of Yim Tin Tsai. This ineffable sense of nostalgia pervades every corner of the island.
Through this journey, participants can explore the life of Yim Tin Tsai villagers in the past, as well as Hakka stories and culture in different senses. By focusing on their feelings towards the surrounding environment and recording them accordingly, participants can create memories of Yim Tin Tsai that are unique and exclusive to themselves.
The guided tours of Sai Kung Hoi Arts Festival are organised by the curator and “Kaifong Tour” together. Various parties including The Salt & Light Preservation Centre, Hong Kong Architecture Centre and Hong Kong Geopark, also provided assistance during the process of route design.
The guided tours will cover four different themes, to provide a more comprehensive experience for the visitors to explore Yim Tin Tsai and Sharp Island. The tours will focus on interactions and experiences, with an objective to encourage the participants to further explore the fascinating cultures and histories of the isles upon completion of the tours.
Founded in 2016, Kaifong Tour is a social enterprise dedicated to promoting meaningful connections and engagement in Hong Kong’s local communities. It designs and organises tours, which takes place at the heart of communities as “the scene of action”. Through community building, education, sustainable tourism and other community projects, Kaifong Tour aims to create a people-oriented and sustainable environment for our communities to develop.
