About the Site Visit 

 

 

In the past, Sheung Wan was once the economic centre of Hong Kong, where many businesses started and witnessed the historical changes of the city. These old shops have either upheld traditions and continuously strived to thrive, or they have followed the pulse of the times, embracing transformation and innovation.

 

We will lead you into Sheung Wan’s Dried Seafood Street and together explore the stories of these old shops. We will delve into traditional printing and salted fish shops, listening to the owners personally share their industry stories, understanding their significant role in Hong Kong’s development as a commercial hub, and witnessing their interaction with the cultural and tourism industries. In addition, we will also introduce new projects within the community, discussing how urban redevelopment and the pandemic have impacted the development of these traditional business and the community. At the end there is a reflective session to discuss the topic.

 

在過去,上環曾是香港的經濟中心,許多店家在這裡開創了他們的事業,見證了香港的歷史變遷。這些老店有的堅守傳統,不斷努力經營,有的則跟隨時代的脈動,實現轉型與創新。

 

我們將帶領大家進入上環的海味街,一同探索這些老店的故事。我們將深入傳統的印刷和咸魚店,聆聽老闆親自分享他們的行業故事,了解他們在香港發展成為貿易中心的重要角色,同時也看見他們與文化旅遊產業的密切互動。除此之外,我們還將介紹社區內的新項目,探討重建和疫情如何改變傳統行業和社區的發展。最後有一個反思環節來討論這個主題。
