Time Out says

As you walk into Wing Ping Tsuen, you will see a large area of ​​grassland and an ancient mansion sat in the middle of it. Built in the Qing Dynasty, Tai Fu Tai was the mansion of Man Chung-luen, whose ancestors originated from Sichuan, and settled in San Tin, Yuen Long since the 15th century. He was also the 21st generation descendant of the Man clan and was bestowed the title of ‘tai fu’ or senior official.

Tai Fu Tai is known as one of the most magnificent traditional buildings in Hong Kong. It truly reflects the architectural characteristics of the traditional mansions of the scholar-gentry class in southern China. The main building is a two-in-three-room layout with rooms in the wing on both sides of the patio. Separated by a promenade, there is a garden bridge and fish pond in the front courtyard, and it’s really nice to take a break here.
