Description

The guide includes numerous full-spread, mapped walking and driving tours, three-dimensional illustrations, and a large section of detailed visitor information, including the author's picks of the most unique and charming hotels and restaurants in all price ranges. Veteran travel writer and Hong Kong expert Phil MacDonald brings sophisticated, authoritative guidance, and a strong, individual voice to this book. This exquisitely illustrated, comprehensive guide deftly captures the spirit of Hong Kong - its gleaming skyscrapers, shopping streets, and world-famous restaurants - along with its lesser-known side - historic walled villages in the New Territories, green islands in the South China Sea, Chinese markets filled with dried sea creatures and other traditional remedies. 3D cutaways take a closer look at some of the more interesting sites (including the Hong Kong & Shanghai Bank Building and the bird-filled Mai Po Marshes), while self-guided tours focus on selected aspects of Hong Kong life (for instance a walking tour of Tsim Sha Tsui and a biking tour around a lush peninsula alive with wildlife). In-depth sidebars explore some of the cultural traits of Hong Kong, including the rising popularity of Chinese tea drinking and the moviemaking industry.
