The Lui Seng Chun Building is a Grade I historical buildings built in 1931 and was donated to the Hong Kong Government by the Lui family in 2000.

The Lui Seng Chun building was included in Batch I of the "Revitalising Historic Buildings Through Partnership Scheme" initiated by the Government in 2008 and, after a bidding process, Hong Kong Baptist University was selected to conserve the building and convert it into a Chinese medicine healthcare centre.

The revitalisation work was completed in early 2012 and the clinic, Hong Kong Baptist University School of Chinese Medicine – Lui Seng Chun, commenced operations in April 2012

The guided tour was organised by the Baptisit University. Not only did we have the opportunity to visit the 1st, 2nd, 3rd floors as well as the herbal roof garden, we were allowed to enter the pharmacy room filled with Chinese herbal cabinets. It was fascinating to see all the different ingredients including dried plants and roots, dried orange peels, dried insect parts...etc etc

We were thankful to have Dr. Chow giving us a brief introduction on Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Q&A session was one of the highlights as we were all eager to participate with questions concerning well-being and health. This session is normally not included in the guided tour.

It was an interesting tour visiting a revitalised antique building as well as learning more of the TCM.
