Fat Tong Chau
Fat Tong Chau (Chinese: 佛堂洲, literally meaning "Buddhist Hall Island". Known as Junk Island in English) is a former island of Hong Kong. It is now part of Tseung Kwan O (also called Junk Bay) and Clear Water Bay Peninsula, Sai Kung as a result of land reclamation. It is located in the southeastern part of Junk Bay.
Fat Tong Chau is located south of the Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate and directly west of TVB City. The South East New Territories Landfill (SENT) is located south of Fat Tong Chau. Before land reclamation, Fat Tong Chau formed the northern boundary of Tathong Channel.

The site of Chinese Customs Station, a declared monument of Hong Kong, is located in the northwestern part of Fat Tong Chau.
