Chung Ying Street
Chung Ying Street is a street on the border between Hong Kong and Shenzhen, within the border town of Sha Tau Kok and Shatoujiao. One side of the street belongs to the other belongs to Mainland China. In Cantonese, Chung means the United Kingdom; the name is a mark of history of the Second Convention of Peking, a treaty that China under the Qing dynasty was forced to lease New Territories to Britain in 1899. The street was a river in 1899. British use the high water mark as the border; the river was too shallow at the section of Sha Tau Kok. It dried before the coming of World War II; the residents on both dried river sides erected their shops to trade. The dried river renamed to Chung Hing Street, renamed to Chung Ying Street; the town of Sha Tau Kok flourished for that period of time. After World War II, with large influx of refugees from China, the British colonial government decided to close the border and the town fell within the Frontier Closed Area; the border town declined since then. Chung Ying Street was once a famous place for shopping.
In the 1990s, when China was still closed to the world, Chinese tourists visited to buy foreign goods watches and jewellery. However, the prosperity has declined in the early 21st century, due to a policy allowing most people from Mainland China to apply to visit Hong Kong directly, causing Chung Ying Street to transform into a place for historical sight-seeing; the PRC government has built a museum about the history of Chung Ying Street to attract tourists again.
