    Default Yim Tin Tsai ghost village (Part 2), Hong Kong, July 2015.'s the second part of Yim Tin Tsai ghost village. Arachnophobes/bat-haters look away.

    And just one up-date on the info RE the island I found from Wikipedia:

    "As of 2013 there is at least one person living on the island again after a long absence of a permanent population".

    Oh, yes, them pots are still there:

    OK, on to the big old corner house that caught my attention on the last visit. I spy it through the trees...

    And no one has used those chairs for a while:

    So on to the final two houses that I stumbled across right at the start last time I visited. They were and are still pretty far gone:

    Love the bats, hate the spider, and glad to see Pickles are a universal constant in derelict homes!
