If you are around the area, after visiting che kung temple, its okay to go for a visit.

Tsang Tai Uk is probably the most convenient traditional walled village to reach from Kowloon and the island. A short train journey to Tai Wai followed by a 15 minute walk gives you a glimpse of life in HK as it was for many people....More
The history behind the traditional Hakka fortified village and the fact that it still remains and is used by local residents to this day is impressive. However, it doesn't seem there is much interest in making the Tsang Tai Uk village tourist friendly at this...More
This is a historic and interesting building, but not really a tourist attraction. Building started in mid-1800's at the time of British colonisation of Hong Kong. It is a classical Hakka fortified village with thick outer walls, corner gun towers, and agricultural fields for defence....More
