The Pocket Guide to Hong Kong and Macau celebrates the sheer energy of these two former European colonies, sitting just 60km apart on the south China coast. It includes the lowdown on the incredible shopping opportunities and cutting-edge architecture of Hong Kong's downtown, its parks and harbourside cityscapes, all existing alongside more traditional temples and street markets. Further afield are the under-appreciated 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 ludicrously ostentatious casinos. This full-colour guide 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 incredible dining and entertainment opportunities too, from indigenous Macanese cuisine and the best places to greet the day with a traditional dim sum breakfast, to Lan Kwai Fong's bars and old colonial hotels where you can have afternoon tea. The Pocket Rough Guide Hong Kong and Macau is the perfect companion for a city break.
