This place stands an ancient Banyan tree.
The heavy aerial roots and trunks of this Banyan tree have already wrapped around a stone house.


 


About this Banyan tree, there are various folk tales.
Some said that this tree was once a small Banyan tree planted beside a stone house.
Due to the evacuation ordered by the Qing Dynasty, the owner left the stone house and never returned. 
In the course of time, the adjacent Banyan tree grew bigger and enveloped the stone house completely.


 


Because of its impressive age, colorful history and cultural significance, this tree is considered as one of the most important living trees in Hong Kong.


 


To reach this place, exit off Yuen Long MTR Station Exit G1.
Then, take Green Minibus No.601 at Yuen Long Station Public Transport Interchange and get off at Pak Wai Tsuen.
At the left hand side of a fish pool, you will see a playground.
This playground is called "Shui Mei Village Playground" and the ancient Banyan tree is located inside this playground.


 


Then, walk to Shui Mei Village for about 25 minutes.
The tree is near the Shui Mei Village Playground.
