Tin Shui Wai New Town, Hong Kong. Large residential community consisting mostly of public housing with a population of over 250,000. Sometimes referred to as the “City of Misery”.

In recent years, the town has acquired a rather dubious reputation in Hong Kong for being an area where numerous serious family and social issues, including domestic violence, mental illness, and suicide have occurred. This includes the collective suicide of 3 girls through coal burning, which attracted extensive coverage from the local media. According to some social workers, Tin Shui Wai is prone to family tragedies because of its remote location, limited employment opportunities, and high density of public housing estates.
