This chapter provides reports of administrative officers' visits to the Hang Hau (Clear Water Bay) Peninsula which is composed of Hang Hau, Ma Yau Tong, Mau Wu Tsai, Rennie's Mill, Yau Yu Wan, Tseung Kwan O, Mang Kung Uk, Pan Long Wan, Sheung Yeung, Ha Yeung, Mau Po, Tai Yuen, Sheung Sze Wan, Tai Hang Hau, Tai Wan Tau, Tai O Mun, Chiu Wo, Po Toi O, Tin Ha Wan, Tai Chik Sha, and Fu Tau Chau. It describes how the Hang Hau Peninsula is more uniformly prosperous than the Sai Kung region. It notes that it is predominantly Hakka, with the exception of the Cantonese village of Taipo Tsai, founded in 1629 and one of the older villages in the District. It adds that Rennie's Mill, the refugee settlement set up in 1949 to cope with the influx of disabled soldiers from the Nationalist Army, has subsequently attracted refugees of many kinds.
