LAM TSUEN

Situated south of Tai Mo Shan in a valley, Lam Tsuen is surrounded by green hills and clear small streams. Today, Lam Tsuen spreads over a large area, covering 23 villages.

Lam Tsuen is not a village, but rather an union of the 23 villages scattered in Lam Tsuen Valley, i.e. 5 indigenous (Punti) villages and 18 Hakka villages.
