Walk along the five-kilometre Tai Tam Waterworks Heritage Trail for a look at 21 declared monuments. From bridges to aqueducts, arches to dams, you can get a good look at the engineering and architectural styles dating back over a century. This relatively complex water supply system was constructed as part of the Tai Tam Scheme and Tai Tam Tuk Scheme between 1883 and 1917 in order to cater for the ever-increasing demand for water, which allowed for urbanisation of the eastern side of Hong Kong Island. Tour guide from the Water Supplies Department will be leading the members in this walk.
Transport is included to bring the participants from the gathering point to the Tai Tam Waterworks. All participants are to join the trail from the gathering point at Wanchai MTR Station Exit B1. The duration of the walking is approximately 2 hours, depending on the speed of the other participants.
