Historic Hong Kong

 Lun Mun Chow Ka in Hong Kong - closed its Dragon door to the middle Kingdom

Lun Mun Chow Ka in Hong Kong - closed its Dragon door to the middle Kingdom

In the last years I experienced the fading of some established old parts of Hong Kong. In a city and I would say in a region where new things are sometimes more valued, due to the prospected gain in new buildings or income, its a common sight.

Wan Chai has some historic buildings which are now protected. This old and established restaurant is missing since some years. 

The name of the Chinese restaurant was "Lun Mun Chow Ka".

The meaning of "Lun" is dragon and  "Mun" is the name for a door, "Chow Ka"  just means restaurant. To my knowledge the restaurant was named after a famous hotel of the TANG DYNASTY (618-907AD) which was situated in Xian along the Silk Road. 

So it is still today quite manageable to get some historic relics as a photographer due to the modernization in all these fast growing Asian megapolis's.
