It has a rich cultural background and records the history of early fishing port development. It is also one of the busiest typhoon shelters in Hong Kong. The name of Hong Kong comes from here. According to the "Xin'an County Chronicles", this area was originally Hong Kong Village. In 1841, the British army landed ashore. A fisherman from Hong Kong Village introduced this place as "Hong Kong" in dialect. Since then, Hong Kong has got its English name. You will take a sampan to visit the fishing village.
