See Yep (Si Yi) is the name of 4 counties situated on the Southwest of Guongdong Province of China, namely: Taishan, Kaiping, Enping and Xinhui. The people of these four cities share very similar customs and traditions, and their spoken dialects are also very similar. They tend to socialise amongst themselves in their hometowns and abroad. Therefore, See Yep has always been seen as one region of Guongdong. Because See Yep is located by the sea, people were attracted to migrate abroad in search for a better living standard.

 Tap Mun Association


Nelson Street, Liverpool, L1 5DN

Tap Mun is an island, also known as 'Grass Island' in Hong Kong. It is encircled by mountains. There is a deep water bay on the south side of the island. During winter, strong northerly wind blows, creating white-headed sea waves. When the bay is calm, it is a favourite place for fishermen to moor their boats. In the 50's and the 60's, when fishing was most prosperous, hundreds of fishing boats would gather. The island was bustling with food halls and shops. It was at its height of prosperity.

It was in the late 50's when the first immigrants left Tap Mun to start their new lives in the UK. They travelled by ship as it was the cheapest method, and the voyage would last one month.

Members of the Tap Mun Association in Liverpool keep close contact with their compatriots and often make contributions in the regeneration of the island.
