HKU Museum Society is delighted to present a fundraising trip for our 30th Anniversary Endowment Fund to Shunde, one of the cradles of Cantonese cuisine. Situated at the core of the Pearl River Delta, with Guangzhou to the north and Hong Kong to the south, Shunde’s outstanding natural environment, lively cultural scene, prosperous economy and renowned culinary arts academies provide particularly favorable conditions for the development of a gastronomic culture and industry. In 2014, Shunde joined the UNESCO Creative Cities Network as the city of gastronomy.

Apart from enjoying different restaurants that offer unique taste of Cantonese cuisine, we will also explore the Lingnan culture (嶺南文化) through the visits to cultural and natural heritages in Shunde. Members will be welcomed as special guests to a private tour at Fung Shui (風水) master Choi Park-Lai’s ancestral home.
