Literally, Tai Mei Tuk (大尾督) means “the very end” because the landscape is located at the end of Mount Pak Sin Leng. In ancient China, people depict the curve of the mountain ridge as “the vessel of the dragon”. Anything on the “vessel” is a sign of good fortune. That’s also why people living in Tai Mei Tuk wanted to change the village’s name from “the very end” to “the place of beauty” (大美督).

In 2003, I moved to Hong Kong with a dream of traveling around the world. Later I found out, HK is an amazing "mini world". Other than skyscrapers, a few steps outside the modern city, it has steep hills, winding coastlines, outlying islands, millions of years volcanic rocks, remote beaches, unspoilt fishing villages, secret waterfalls, wild animals and ancient forests. Follow me now to explore the Hong Kong less traveled.
