Overview

This stunning Hong Kong travel pictorial captures the architecture, culture, people, and cuisine of one of the most dynamic cities.

You can leave Hong Kong, but it will never leave you. The experience of encountering an unforgettable mix of influences, cultures, and flavors stays with visitors. It's a place of clashing contrasts, Hong Kong is famous as the place where East most dramatically meets West, but that's just the start of it. It is also where the future meets the past — just check out the way the sci-fi infrastructure rubs shoulders with ancient temples. It's also the capital of capitalism, yet is part of the world's last great socialist empires.

I'ts also one of the younger places on earth, yet a piece of the world's oldest civilizations. It's a rational, financial town—but feng shui and ancient magic are never far away.

While many books focus on aspects of Hong Kong, such as the view from the air or the glories of the islands, this book gives you the whole breathtaking package.
