Video: Hong Kong Humans – Forced to leave Discovery Bay, houseboat owners inherit floating liabilities

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.
