Discovering Hong Kong's Neighbourhoods: Sham Shui Po & Tai Hang

Discovering Hong Kong's Neighbourhoods: Sham Shui Po & Tai Hang | South East Asia for the independent traveller | Scoop.it

In the past century 4,000 hectares of land were reclaimed (Hong Kong is the country with the second most reclaimed land after The Netherlands). Sham Shui Po one of the most traditional areas in Hong Kong was originally called Deep Water Pier as it sat on the edge of the island. Now it is covered in land that extends down to Nam Cheong.

Finding A Sense of Home Abroad | South East Asia for the independent traveller | Scoop.it
