Hong Kong Fading Culture Ma Wan Fishing Village
Ma Wan Island is a small island located under Tsing Ma bridge that was constructed to connect Kowloon to Lantau for the new Airport that opened back in 1998. One can still see a few fish farms below as one crosses the bridge heading into the city. The old population has been mainly moved into new development as their fishing and farming pasts become just that the past. In 2012 the government put an end to all trawling that is need to catch the small shrimp used to create the local shrimp paste. Since then the old population of 2000 has dispersed.
There are also stories of this island being a very popular point for smuggling between China and Hong Kong in years past. A far cry from the new development that houses 5000 residents as well as a theme park and favorite park for wedding pictures.
