Lei Yu Mun Village

Strictly speaking Lei Yu Mun is the name of the channel, and of the district next to the channel.  The village itself is a combination of four squatter villages which are today some of the rare examples still left of this style of rural living.

Although officially illegal and temporary structures the buildings are licensed and tolerated by the government in recognition of their historic and cultural value as well as their necessarily to providing housing for the local community which does not wish to be relocated to government housing.

The first village you reach when you visit Lei Yu Mun is Sam Ka Tsuen, which is where the harbour, typhoon shelter and the main restaurants are located.

Walking past the main street of restaurants and fish stalls and then past the Lei Yue Mun recreation ground takes you to the next village of Ma Wan Tsuen which is where more people live.   Walking all the way through the Ma Wan village takes you to the Tin Hau Temple.

Finally inland where visitors do not go is Che Teng Village.
