Wah Fu Estate shows the life of typical public housing residents
Wah Fu Estate at Pokfulam near Aberdeen Fishing Village is not a museum. It is the authentic public housing estate for locals.
So Wah Fu Estate can show the life of the typical public housing residents.
Wah Fu Estate, symbol of decent living standard for common people in the 1960s-1970s
The public housing buildings in Wah Fu Estate, which was built in the late 1960s, have a higher quality and standard than the resettlement buildings, like Mei Ho House, which is now the restored youth hostel.
Wah Fu Estate’s apartments were regarded as the lottery jackpot!
The big apartments (quite a lot of them even have sea view!) and public facilities, indoor market, mall, schools, the second public library in Hong Kong etc. symbolized the decent living standard for the common people in Hong Kong in the 1960s-1970s.
Wah Fu Estate residents’ life symbolize the life for Hong Kong public housing residents
Although Wah Fu Estate will be rebuilt soon, the remaining residents’ life still symbolize the life for Hong Kong public housing residents.
If travelers take the bus (check the bus routes here) or taxi to go to Wah Fu Estate, YOU can still see where the locals live, eat, shop, play etc.
The sea view is of course a major attraction.
