Now, Chun Fa Lok is still a place name or a former village on the southeast corner of the island. A government document in the Ming Dynasty

named the water near Chun Fa Lok Chun Fa Yeung (春花洋). The Ming navy defeated once pirate fleets there. In some historical sources, Tsing-I Island

The rural committee was politically significant until the establishment of a District Council and Regional Council (now-abolished), and even less significant since the urban population grew much larger than the rural population. Population[edit] There were about 4,000 people on the island when the British took the New Territories
New Territories
around 1898. In the following one hundred years, the population has grown to nearly 50 times this size; the 2001 Census calculating that the population of the island was 193,432 in 55,478 households. In an estimation in 2007, there are about 200,400 people.[1] It is expected to grow to 203,300 in the near future. Most of the population live in Tsing Yi

Island
is a hilly island with Tsing Yi Peak

in the south and Liu To Shan in the north east. Small plain can be found surrounding the former Tsing Yi Lagoon in island northeast. The rocks on the island are mainly granite and were exposed due to extensive housing, industrial and infrastructure construction. Although the island is not fallen in the administration of country park, most of the hilly area remains green. The Tsing Yi Peak

In the early days, the inhabitants on the island were mostly farmers and fishermen. The major population concentrated in the northeast portion of the island. Farmers grew rice, vegetables and pineapples, while fishermen lived in huts connected by plank walkways in the small harbour of Tsing Yi Tong which stretched far back into the island. Many fishermen also lived on their junks and boats all the time, fishing in the nearby waters. Even as late as the 1970s, Tsing Yi
Tsing Yi
Tong resembled Tai O
Tai O
with its characteristic stilt houses and water vehicles. Like many other fishing villages in Hong Kong, the Tsing Yi dwellers worshipped Tin Hau, the goddess of mercy and the sea. A Tin Hau Temple was built on the shore of Tsing Yi
Tsing Yi
Tong. At the birthday of Tin Hau, fishermen of all nearby waters would come to the Temple for celebrations. The temple was white in color and thus people call it Pak Miu (白廟, lit. White Temple). From the 1920s onwards, a Chinese company built lime factories on the present site of Greenfield Garden. It is the earliest known industry on the island. The lime industry continued to flourish during the 1950s, and a tanning factory was also founded at the same period. After World War II, other heavy industries moved in as well. In the 1960s, several oil companies moved their oil storage depots onto the island and a Green Island
Island
Cement cement plant. CLP later commissioned its 1520MW oil-fired Tsing Yi
Tsing Yi
Power Station in 1969 at Nam Wan due to its proximity to the oil tank farms. Meanwhile, some small shipbuilding companies opened on Tsing Yi, and remain on the north side of the island. In the 1970s, six large-scale companies on the island collectively built the Tsing Yi Bridge
Tsing Yi Bridge
to connect Tsing Yi
Tsing Yi
Town and Kwai Chung
Kwai Chung
Town over the Rambler Channel. The bridge was soon transferred to the Hong Kong
Hong Kong
Government, remaining the sole road connection to the island for more than ten years. Several industrial buildings for light industries were constructed beside the bridge afterward. Several dockyards moved to the west shore of the island at the end of the 1970s. During the 1950s, Wok Tai Wan on Tsing Yi
Tsing Yi
Island
Island
was a paradise for nudists, and hence Tsing Yi
Tsing Yi
was once synonymous with nudism in Hong Kong. After the establishment of the Tsing Yi
Tsing Yi
Bridge, the Hong Kong government commenced an extensive new town project on the island. Cheung Ching Estate, Cheung Hong Estate
Cheung Hong Estate
and Mayfair Gardens
Mayfair Gardens
were consequently built in heaps. The vicinity of the Mobil
Mobil
oil storage depot to Mayfair Garden and Cheung Ching Estate
Cheung Ching Estate
once aroused enormous concern for the safety of the residents. Some social workers and residents urged the government to relocate the storage facilities. The government decided to halt the last phase of the Mayfair Garden development scheme. The storage facility remained at the same location until Container Terminal 9
Container Terminal 9
was on the government's agenda. Later on, the tenor of town development shifted northward. Two fisherman harbours, Tsing Yi Tong and Mun Tsai Tong were reclaimed for residential use. Many fishermen were relocated from their boats parked in the typhoon shelter to the Ching Tao House, a new residential block on land, of Chueng Ching Estate. The land inhabitants were put together into several designated areas so as to re-build their villages. The primary sectors had all died out owing to the drastic town development. Tsing Yi
Tsing Yi
Estate, Cheung On Estate, Cheung Fat Estate, Ching Tai Court and Tsing Yi
Tsing Yi
Garden were built after all reclamations were accomplished. Ching Wah Court
Ching Wah Court
was built adjoining to Cheung Hong Estate. At the same time, Tsing Yi Bridge

was seriously overburdened and its structure was unable to cope with increasing traffic. There was only a one-way road in each direction on the bridge. Traffic congestion

became the burning problem in the community, and subsequently aroused protest. Finally, Tsing Yi

North Bridge, a connection to Tsuen Wan

Town was built to ease off the congestion, as well as to accommodate the local residential population boom.

Education[edit] In the early days, education on the Tsing Yi
Tsing Yi
Island
Island
was mostly private. The first public school on the island is Tsing Yi
Tsing Yi
Public School, a primary school founded by villagers and businessmen on the island. In the post- World War II
World War II
era, Hong Kong
Hong Kong
Government provides 9-year free education to all children from primary one to secondary three. The public school is then mainly funded by the government. Another school for the children of fishermen, Tsing Yi
Tsing Yi
Fishermen's Children's Primary School, was founded by Fish Marketing Organisation. In 1977, Cheung Ching Estate, the first public housing estates on the island, marked the beginning of the new town on the island. To accommodate new schooling children, three primary schools and Buddhist Yip Kei Nam Memorial College, the first secondary school on the island, were built with the estate. More schools were erected when new estates were completed. In 1999, a post-secondary college, Hong Kong Technical College (Tsing Yi), was completed and provides vocational training for all adults in Hong Kong. In the 2000s, the number of schooling children began to drop and the several schools are facing the fatal fate. Numerous schools are founded on Tsing Yi
