Neighbourhood Series: Tin Shui Wai

August 27, 2012

Tin Shui Wai, a town of 300,00 located more than an hour away from HK island, has been designed in such a way that its residents rarely get to buy daily produce outside of the more expensive supermarkets. Some residents have set up illegal dawn markets on the streets and on top of bridges but they always fret the unexpected arrival of the police. Early September, the HK government declared it would open a new, legal, dawn market. Tin Shui Wai's residents and hawkers are worried it will turn into another tourist trap.
