Hong Kong Sam Ka Tsuen Harbour
Sam Ka Tsuen Village is located at the east end of Kowloon Peninsula at the entrance to the Hong Kong’s protected harbour of Kowloon Bay and Victoria Harbour and only a ten minute downhill walk from Yau Tong MTR station. Today many tourists visit the area for fresh seafood meal. The size of the boats has dropped as fishing in Hong Kong has become a trade of the past. Plus the Tong people who were the local restricted from owning property lived on boats until the 1970’s.
A 15 minute walk will get you to the Ma Wan Tsuen Village as well as a few of the old gunner stations from WW2 intended to protect the city. The village is directly across from the Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defense that was used to protect the city in the days of naval power. Both above the village and to the east one can also find old defense systems used in years past to protect the city. (see image below)
The village is still inhabited with many fish restaurants. The feel of the whole place is very old world and what one would expect if one traveled back to earlier times except for residents watching TV’s and using smartphones. It’s just another of those communities that makes Hong Kong such a unique and wonderful place even though the living conditions are not what most would consider acceptable.
