Islands District, Hong Kong
With an area that is 16 % of that of Hong Kong and a population of approximately only 90,000 (1.3 % of Hong Kong) the Islands District is the largest in terms of area and also the least populated. It is therefore the district with by far the lowest population density of ca. 500 per sq.km.
Many islands of Hong Kong are actually not part of the district. Most notably, Hong Kong Island contains four districts itself. The term outlying islands tends to refer to the islands of the Islands District. The northeast point of Lantau and Ma Wan traditionally belong to Tsuen Wan District owing to their dependence of Tsuen Wan.
The outlying islands are notable for a more relaxed and green way of life than that of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Peninsula.
