Named after the legend of a bride who drowned in its waters, Bride’s Pool in Tai Po has quite a reputation as one of the most haunted places in Hong Kong. In September 2011, cremated remains were found scattered in the vicinity of Bride’s Pool, along with abandoned Chinese spirit tablets strewn under trees. Rumour has it that the evil spirits of Bride’s Pool will pull you into the water because they are lonely in the pool and are looking for companions. The road immediately above Bride’s Pool also added to the eeriness of the place. Nicknamed ‘the deadly curve’, the road has been labelled a junction blacksite because of its alarming number of fatal car accidents.
