Reviews

"In "Hong Kong Precincts," author Penny Watson skillfully breaks down the 15 precincts (including Macau) and its "best shops, eateries, bars and other hangouts" to feature the wealth of Hong Kong's cross-section of experiences from markets that sell everything from plastic toys to pigs' ears, to modern bars and boutiques. Even better, interviews with local Hongkongers (including a mixologist, sommelier, interior designer, celebrity chef and diamond dealer) highlight favorite haunts and tips for enjoying the best in town. It helps reveal the city's eclectic soul, beyond merely old-school authenticity and tourist favorites." - San Francisco Chronicle
