21 May Hui Tong Village
Huitong Village is located in Tangjiawan Town of Zhuhai. It was built in the Qing Dynasty and was awarded district-level cultural relics protection unit status in 2006. Here you can find the typical Lingnan architectural style, with distinctive features such as blue bricks, gray tiles and cornices. The village has two towers, one southern and one northern, which echo each other. There is also an old ancestral hall that silently tells the history of this village.
In the mid-19th century, many of Huitong’s villagers left to make a living in Hong Kong and Macao.Huitong’s Qixiaxian Garden, built by two overseas returnees to the village, is an integration of Chinese and Western-style architecture and has been flipped into a trendy café. The village has been attracting droves of artists since 2017 when Zhuhai set up an art base there.
Relics there include the Memorial Archway erected at the very beginning, ancestral temples and watchtowers, well-patterned dwellings, and the Mok’s abstinence hall, also known as “Qixia Nunnery.” The so-called nunnery is sited in the west of the Village, and was built by Mok Yongyu, who had family members of three generations serving as chief compradors of Hong Kong Butterfield & Swire Co.
