Yuen Long District – In the northwest of the New Territories, Yuen Long developed as a new town after WWII. The plain surrounded by hills also offers some wild parts that have retained traditional rural features. The area provides a diversity of locations for filmmakers.

Nam Sang Wai / 南 生圍
Location: New Territories, Hong Kong 南 生圍 Film:Election 黑社會 (2005) / Dir: Johnnie To 杜琪峰
Nam Sang Wai is located east of Wang Chau in the Yuen Long District, between the Rivers Kam Tin and Shan Pui. The area is in the wetland buffer zone, bustling with a diverse and rich wild life. As Nam Sang Wai is a beautiful area, in recent years it has become a favorite location for many television, film and music video shootings.
In Election that’s where Kun (Gordon Lam Ka-tung) tries to snatch the ceremonial carved baton from Big Head (Lam Suet), a baton which bestows final power on the new godfather.
There are also old stone houses in Nam Sang Wai. In one of them, Sergeant Ma (Donnie Yen) and Tony (Collin Chou) fight together in one of the best MMA demonstration on screen in Wilson Yip’s Flash Point.
