Location: Wai Loi Tsuen, Hong Kong, China


This is Wai Loi Tsuen in Hong Kong. It is one of the very last rural settlements which has retained its original moat, which looks like a horseshoe from a bird's eye view. Trees are planted along the moat to embrace the densely packed village houses, making the village a pleasant green settlement.
