The Repulse Bay has become one of the most expensive housing areas in Hong Kong due to the nice surroundings. In 1841, the Repulse Bay was used as a base by pirates and caused serious concern to foreign merchant ships trading with China. It is an area in the southern part of Hong Kong Island. In the 1910s, Repulse Bay was developed into a beach, and the beach was extended artificially, thus the sand closer to the shore is coarser than that further away. On the eastern end of the beach is a temple to Tin Hau, with prominent statues of two goddesses, Kwun Yum and Tin Hau. Also overlooking Repulse Bay, although from higher up, is the famous "building with a hole"…
