The art of hand carving mahjong tiles is listed as one of Hong Kong’s Intangible Cultural Heritages by the government. Visitors can head to Biu Kee to buy a set of high-quality mahjong tiles. Recently, they started to customise the characters or patterns on the mahjong tiles as unique souvenirs or gifts.
