Tung Chung Part-1 meaning 'eastern stream', is an area situated on the north-western coast of Lantau Island in hong Kong. Tung Chung, currently one of the latest generation of New towns, was formerly a rural village around Tung Chung Wan, and along the delta and lower courses of Tung Chung River and Ma Wan Chung in the north-western coast of Lantau Island. The area was once a major defense stronghold against pirates and foreign military during Ming and Qing dynasties
