In the past, the distribution of ports and dwellings of people were closely connected. Located in Southern Lantau, Shui Hau Village once played an important role in Hong Kong's maritime history. Forgotten Lantau: Tales of Shui Hau offers eleven portraits of people living in Shui Hau. The book re-captures a different Hong Kong, one that was free from, and is resisting, rapid urbanisation. Apart from buffalos and butterflies, the stories of villagers, settlers, and visitors together compose the tranquil village of Shui Hau.
