2022: Welcome to the new Gwulo website

Here you'll find over 47,000 pages about old Hong Kong to explore, including over 30,000 photos. The content is added by a friendly community of people who enjoy sharing what we know about Hong Kong's history, and you are very welcome to join us.

The upgraded version of Gwulo.com went live in August 2022. Though it is mostly complete, there are still some areas that need more work. Please visit the 2022 Gwulo upgrade forum for details of the latest work on the site, and how to report any problems you notice.

Happy New Year!

We reached a new milestone in 2015 - Gwulo now has over 20,000 pages about old Hong Kong, including over 10,000 photos!

I'll go into the numbers in more detail below, and also talk about the plans for the year ahead. But first, a big thank you to everyone who contributed over the year, and helped us reach that milestone. I hope you've all had a good break over Christmas, and are looking forward to the New Year.

Best regards, David

We've just had our first few days of cool weather this winter, and cool weather means it's time to get out hiking!

If you're out and about and you see anything unusual, please leave a comment or a photo to tell us what you've found. It's always good to hear about new things to explore. I'll give some more tips on how to share your discoveries below, but first a small find from Friday morning's walk.
