・香港-中国本土 / Hong Kong - Mainland China

沙頭角 / Sha Tau Kok

During "The Cold War" period, the boundary between British Hong Kong and Peoples Republic of China was a part of "Iron Curtain", and entry of boundary was strictly restricted due to military reason. After Hong Kong's hand-over to PRC, the policy of boundary control has been maintained due to immigration and customs reason under different solical systems. Some restricted area was opened to publicaccess on 15th Feb, 2012, however, the access to Sha Tau Kok town located at the east end of the boundary is still permitted only for local residents.
