Hong Kong is best known as a centre for big business but scattered among its gleaming corporate towers it is possible to find small, independent companies that specialize in traditional trades. These companies are closely linked to Hong Kong's history, and is woven into the city's cultural fabric. They're part of what gives Hong Kong its unique aesthetic and atmosphere.

Times are changing, though. Many of these businesses have no succession plans and anticipate closure. As these elements of its heritage disappear, Hong Kong edges ever closer to becoming another generic global city. In this walk, we will visit a number of these disappearing trades, the last masters of some of Hong Kong's home-grown industries. With the end in sight for many, we go out to hear their stories and learn about their ways of life, before they are lost for ever.
