|Where:||Blue House 72 Stone Nullah Lane Hong Kong Island|
We were happy to welcome alumni to an event in Hong Kong! This time they had the chance to explore the Wan Chai district, but in a different manner than until now. We organized a Wanchai Haunted Tour for the alumni of the University of Groningen and Utrecht.
Today Wan Chai is a bright and buzzing district, a centre for business and entertainment. The area however was one of Hong Kong’s earliest settlements and as a result has a wealth of history to share. After witnessing more than a century of changes, Wan Chai is more than just a district of modernity and civilization, but one that is rich with traditions, culture and history, including spooky tales and myths that have been passed down through generations.
When we visited different places in the district, these tales and myths were revealed, while they helped us better understand local religions and beliefs, many also shed light on the transformation that is taking place within the community.
