The integration of Hong Kong and the cities of the Pearl River Delta (PRD) is a planning priority but the PRD area remains mysterious to many Hong Kong people. Now a new guidebook, Hong Kong’s Back Yard: A Guide to the Pearl River Delta aims to help us discover the diverse world on our doorstep. Join Hong Kong’s Back Yard author, Thomas Bird, and publisher Harvey Thomlinson, for a multimedia introduction to some of the hidden gems introduced by the book: from surfer beaches, to artists’ villages, Ming dynasty fortresses to ancestral temples, hiking trails to archipelagos of hidden islands, and much more.
Meanwhile the panelists will also encourage a discussion of how to strengthen not merely economic but also cultural ties between Hong Kong and the PRD. Talk with slides and video. A ‘must-attend’ event for history and travel buffs.
