Sketches of Sai Kung PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Sketches of Sai Kung free pdf From Clearwater Bay to Tai Long Wan, the Sai Kung Peninsula is Hong Kong's back garden - a place where people go to swim, hike, eat seafood alfresco, and otherwise escape the city. But besides the popular beaches and waterfront restaurants, there is an abundance of hidden attractions, and Lorette E. Roberts has discovered them for this book. In these pages you'll find rolling green hills, weekend junk trips, gambling grannies and pooches on parade- walled village houses and old film studios- Sung dynasty temples and rice farmers' implements- fish markets, folk museums and wakeboarding clubs- a Chinese herbalist's shop and the tools of ancient trades- sampan ladies, fleets of ferries, and ships of all shapes! Part of a series of best-selling books, Sketches of Sai Kung paints this beautiful area of Hong Kong in a new light.
