Situated in Hong Kong between Tsing Yi and Lantau Island is Ma Wan.

All that remains of Ma Wan now is an abandoned village. It is a ghost town compared to the bustling streets that we’re used to.

Residents of this little fishing village were evicted in 2011 by the government due to property development. These residents left unwillingly, leaving most of their furniture behind.

There were many interesting things to photograph here and we jammed packed our memory card full, hence part 1. If you ever travel to Hong Kong, this is definitely one place on your must-see list.

Anybody spot the guitarist playing on the roof?
