Tung Ping Chau has been depopulated for a few decades; down to maybe one or two elderly men I think.
Move out coincided with widespread exodus from more remote HK farming areas, around 1970s I think, as farming became uncompetitive here, and cities lured (HK, and overseas). I also heard something re islanders experiencing problems with some people who came from mainland, burgling houses.
