Mei Ho House

Time Out says

The only surviving remnant of Hong Kong’s oldest public housing project and the recipient of a Unesco honorable mention, Mei Ho House is a vital piece of local history and architecture built after a fire in 1954 left 58,000 homeless. Nowadays, in addition to being a functioning youth hostel, the complex also contains Mei Ho Cafe, a modern cha chaan teng that serves a fusion of traditional Hong Kong and Spanish dishes. There's also museum dedicated to the history of public housing in the area, and the estate’s single floor wet market is one of Hong Kong’s most authentic, and is well worth checking out before plans to redevelop it gain traction.
