Yim Tin Tsai

Recommendation by Lemi

Mangroves have taken over the former salt-farming town on Yim Tin Tsai (鹽田仔). It used to be inhabited by the Hakka people, migrant families who settled here from Guangdong. Now, the settlement remains deserted, slowly reclaimed by nature. Rows of townhouses, a schoolhouse, and a Roman Catholic church once catered to the island’s population. It makes for a pretty atmospheric hike frequented by day-trippers looking for a little lore and history. Head to Ching Po School for a more educational approach to the village’s heritage!
