re-urbanization plan in Wong Tai Sin District on January 26, 2016, in Hong Kong.
The village can be traced back to the 14th century, authorities say, and is the city's
only remaining walled village in an urban area. Based on reports, the 650-year-old
urban walled village will be destroyed to make way for developments.
