As 2018 draws to a close, over 200 Discovery Bay families living aboard boats are facing eviction. The Marina Club told members in August that their berthing rights would be terminated as the facility is to be renovated. As part of our Hong Kong Humans series, Ann Cao speaks to the Thoreau family, who are at odds as to what to do with their HK$5.5m home.

In collaboration with the University of Hong Kong’s Journalism and Media Studies Centre.
