As a treasured monument, Sam Tung Uk demonstrates the wisdom and building techniques of the pioneer settlers as well as aspects of traditional rural culture, with traces of intangible cultural heritage (ICH) being clear to see here. In this connection, this exhibition is presented in the four dwellings near the central axis of the village, displaying the history and architectural features of Sam Tung Uk, as well as the life etiquette and food culture of the traditional rural villages in Hong Kong. Visitors are not only able to learn about the cultural connotations of Sam Tung Uk through the demonstration of ICH items of traditional villages, but can also experience elements of village life and culture of the old days from different perspectives.
