Red House (Hong Kong)

Red House or Hung Lau (zh-t|t=紅樓) is a house in a farm in Pak Kok, Tuen Mun, Hong Kong, near the Tun Mun Public Riding School, Butterfly Estate and Castle Peak. The house and the farm was where Dr. Sun Yat-sen planned to overthrow the Qing dynasty.

It named after its appearance, red bricks with plastering in red colour. The two-storey house is of the combination of Chinese and Western architectures.

Adjacent to the house is a garden commemorating Dr. Sun Yat Sen and is one of few places in Hong Kong where the Flag of the Republic of China is flown freely.
