Let travellers feel the culture and lifestyle of the former Hong Kong fishermen
When the "Antique Boat" meets the "Historic monument", what kind of spark will come out! The museum, which has a history of more than 100 years, is like the Dukling, witnessing the growth of Hong Kong; it is surrounded by different Hong Kong stories; one of the main characters is the "Dukling Spirit". The first boutique shop of Dukling officially entered the Tai Kwun. Apart from allowing visitors get to know the splendid history of Dukling, there are also a number of theme cultural areas in the store. The Qipao featured design by Dukling, the role-playing costumes that match the theme of the Tai Kwun museum, hang around and take pictures in the ancient buildings full of artistic atmosphere, cherish the past, while savouring the immortal feelings. From time to time, we will hold a variety of traditional craft workshops so that we can cherish the old Hong Kong characteristics and hope that these traditions will be preserved and passed on.
