Itinerary

Even though playing mahjong is still an iconic and integral part of Hong Kong culture, hand-carved mahjong tiles are now a dying art because of the invention and rise of electronic mahjong tables with magnetic tiles. Meet one of the few remaining artisan mahjong tile carvers and carve a tile yourself!

Highlights:
– Meet one of the few-remaining hand-carved mahjong tile masters left in Hong Kong
– Watch the master demonstrate the complexity of carving mahjong tiles
– Learn and go through the process of carving your own mahjong tile
