Hong Kong is best known as a centre for big business, but scattered among its gleaming corporate towers it is possible to find small, independent companies that specialise in traditional trades. These companies are closely linked to Hong Kong’s history, and are woven into the city’s cultural fabric. They’re part of what gives Hong Kong its unique aesthetic and atmosphere.

Times are changing, though. Many of these businesses have no succession plans and anticipate closure. As these elements of its heritage disappear, Hong Kong edges ever closer to becoming another generic global city.

In this walk, we will visit a number of these disappearing trades, the last masters of some of Hong Kong’s home-grown industries. With the end in sight for many, we go out to hear their stories and learn about their ways of life, before they are lost for ever.

香港不只是個繁華的國際商貿,不應只得摩天大廈, 在城市的小街轉角處,散落著老舊小店和餘輝未盡的 行當,低調、含蓄,卻一直閃閃發光。他們與我城一 路走來,密不可分,既訴說了城市的往事種種,並融 入了我們的文化肌理,讓這座名為香港的城市有了香 港的美和氛圍。 如今,往昔香江風情或將成遺美,傳統行業後繼無 人,都逐漸式微以至消逝,讓人婉惜之餘,不禁問沒 有了文化的血脈傳承,所謂國際都會又個性何在? 這次漫步之旅,我們將探見這些在時代巨輪下後退的 美麗風景——這些走向消逝的行業和店舖,並拜訪碩 果僅存的手藝大師。在餘輝尚存之際,去聽聽他們的 故事,探進他們的生活,領略舊香港的韻致與風情。
