This text is in English & Chinese. Hong Kong is most widely known as a place of densely packed buildings and bustling, neon-drenched streets. Its best-kept secret, however, is found just beyond city limits, in a magnificently diverse landscape of unspoilt islands, coves, beaches, mountains and cliffs. In this book, Luiz Antonio Souza takes readers on a personal photographic journey through this frequently overlooked natural landscape. Starting at the Tai Po Kau Forest Reserve, the author meanders towards Tung Ping Chau, then down through Crooked Harbour, Double Haven and the mouth of Tolo Channel. His route then takes us to the ruggedly beautiful High Island coast and the outer islands of Rocky Harbour, before venturing to the spectacular Ninepin island group. The journey picks up again through southern Hong Kong Island and the south coast of Lantau, before ending up in Inner Deep Bay and Mai Po marshes, where countless birds stop to rest and refuel during their long spring and autumn migrations. In this intimate, visually stunning exploration of the 'hidden' Hong Kong, the reader accompanies the author every step of the way, discovering what he discovers, and sharing his awe of the overwhelming beauty of the natural world.
