Description

Hong Kong is the world’s most exciting city, at once fascinating and exasperating, a tangle of contradictions. It is a dazzling amalgam of conspicuous consumption and primitive poverty, the most architecturally incongruous yet undeniably beautiful urban panorama of all. World-renowned travel writer Jan Morris offers this most insightful and comprehensive study of the enigma of Hong Kong. Morris takes us through the crowded streets of the city across the crowded floor of the Stock Exchange to the Happy Valley racecourse and on to the carnival-like ferry ride from Kowloon to Victoria. She also depicts a British opium port controlled by pirates, cutthroats, and scoundrel tycoons in the early days of Hong Kong.
