    Default Around Tin Shui Wai, Hong Kong, July 2015.


    Not been putting up any reports for a while. That’s not because I haven’t been getting out there – it’s just because I’ve been getting out and about quite a long way away and I’ve only just got back! The places in question are Hong Kong and Taiwan so brace yourselves for a wave of Asia urbex reports. Some of them are quite impressive places, others are more mundane. Anyhow there are over 20 to come over the next few weeks so I hope you don’t all get bored.

    The first report is actually a collection of 3-4 places that didn’t merit a report in their own right. Hence I’ve bundled them together as they were all in-and-around the Tin Shui Wai area in the north-west of HK.



    The first two are a couple of abandoned houses on the Ping Shan Heritage trail.

    This one wasn’t such an old building:

    The second just round the corner was very, very old and more far gone:

    Next up is an abandoned house up the road from Lau Fan Shan. It would have been nice to have a shuffty inside but the compound was tightly fenced off so externals only here:

    Finally is this curious place. It’s the monastery of Wan Fou Sin Koon. I say curious as it is in very good nick but just appears to be totally deserted. I had a look for it on the web and all I could find on the place is that it was robbed by an armed gang back in 1998 when they made off with HK$100,000 of stuff.

    Clearly somebody is keeping some of the place clean:

    But not up in this part:

    OK…a modest start. The more spectacular is to come in the next report!

    I'm pretty sure there's no chance of that happening (getting bored that is), bring 'em on squire....

    Nice one, cheers.
