Colorful maps, great book! Essential travel tips included! May 18, 2010
(The photo shown here is the 2008 version, but I got the 2009 version.) Wish there was the 2010 version! Loved the colorful photos on every page. The book is divided into different sections such as areas of interest, top sights and attractions like horse racing, casinos, HK Disneyland, nightlife, parks, Star Ferry, museums, temples, and even street dining and bargaining at nighttime. The book also talks about early history of HK, the arts, Chinese Medicine, places to dine and to have fun at night, and a section on Macau too. I like the section near the end where it gives A-Z travel tips like transportation and how to get around, things to consider before you book your hotel (accommodations), best places to shop, sports, activities and festivals, street atlas maps that includes hotels and restaurants, and even how to pronounce some basic Cantonese phrases to get around! Would recommend the book when traveling and is worth to buy.
