Introduction

Law Uk Folk Museum is only a 5 minutes' walk from the Chai Wan MTR Station. The house museum, Law Uk ("Law's House"), is named after its original owner, a Hakka family whose Chinese surname is transliterated as "Law". Today, this 18th-century Hakka village house - the only example of its kind in Chai Wan - is a declared historical building.
