Once a fishing village for centuries, the shore of the Causeway Bay has been transformed by several stages of reclamation, taken place over time, into a typhoon shelter. It is unqiue among all typhoon shelters in Hong Kong in that it is situated right in the heart of the Victoria Harbour offshore to the metropolitan areas.
The typhoon shelter provides berthing and mooring facilities for luxurious yachts of the Hong Kong Yacht Club as well as for the floating homes of the remains of the aboriginal boat people. Today, the younger generation of these boat people have moved onshore. The elderlies are happy to continue with their tradition and are still living on the boats where they were born, grew up and had their own families.
Will the tradition come to an end when the last candlelight blacks out?
