Pocket Rough Guide Hong Kong & Macau

Book Description

The Pocket Rough Guide to Hong Kong and Macau celebrates the energy of these two former European colonies, sitting just 37 miles apart on the south China coast. This fully updated guidebook includes the lowdown on the shopping opportunities and cutting-edge architecture of Hong Kong's downtown, parks, and harborside cityscapes--all existing alongside traditional temples and street markets.

Go further afield to appreciate the beaches, rural landscapes, and old walled villages of the New Territories, easy to reach in even a short visit but often overlooked. Across the Pearl River, and close enough for day trips, Macau's eighteenth-century churches and lanes incongruously rub shoulders with ostentatious casinos.

The Pocket Rough Guide to Hong Kong and Macau features inspirational photography and detailed, reliable maps that show you the best of the city. There are up-to-the-minute reviews of the region's dining and entertainment, too, from indigenous Macanese cuisine and the best places for traditional dim sum, to Lan Kwai Fong's bars and which old colonial hotels serve afternoon tea.

The Pocket Rough Guide Hong Kong and Macau is your essential guide to Hong Kong, with information on all the key sights in an easy-to-use format.
