The History of Hong Kong


Many young people in Hong Kong don’t have a sense of their past, perhaps due to in part of the rapid technological changes. Under the mountain of Facebook and Weibo updates, history can easily be overlooked or, even worse in the case of some mainland cities, swiftly demolished.

It doesn’t have to be this way. We should continue down its preservation path, and find ways to use existing history in a modern way. In this way, we can learn more about Hong Kong’s history while enjoying the comforts of modern-day shopping, dining and photo taking.

Actually, Preserving the past helps keep alive personal history, which can be passed down from generation to generation. We all should play an essential role in this and can certainly work together, but so can each of us.

With good conservation and promotion, our (Hong Kong) fine traditions and practices can be preserved for the enjoyment of future generations.
