It was considered a major node of the maritime Silk Road with great importance in the history of contacts between China and the outside world. In 1973, Tuen Mun was officially established as a new town but yet, it was largely seen as a mountainous wasteland of backwards development in the eyes of the residents of Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. Now, Tuen Mun has become a core region in the northwestern part of Hong Kong’s New Territories. Its proximity to Mainland China gives it a geographical advantage, and on that basis, its development had greatly accelerated recently.This book expounds on the history of Tuen Mun in a series of thematic chapters. It delves into the old history of the region, prominent historical sites and relics, the origin of the Xinhai Revolution, controversy over the Ta The Institute, as well as the development of the new town of Tuen Mun in recent years.
