Tuan Chau Island's name is derived from the two words “linh tuan”
(the patrol man) and “tri chau” (district chief) since in the
feudal times the royal army set up a guard station here to
patrol and defend the borderland. Prior to 1999, the Island's
residents suffered from a very modest living standard. There was
no power network and no clean water. Roads were only trails and
there were no mechanical means of transportation. Tuan Chau was
a very poor town where fishing with very rudimentary tools was
the primary means of making a living.
