Inthis joyful travel sketchbook, Hong Kong is captured through thehearts of a writer and an artist. Fromthe winding, incense-filled streets of Sheung Wan to the pandemoniumof a wet market in North Point to the sleepy island backwater of TaiO, Lena Sin and Nicholas Tay take you on a wonder-filled journey thatshines a light on the softer, more romantic side of this chaoticcity.

Filledwith tales of growing up in Hong Kong, Lena weaves personal anecdotesand conversations with locals into richly illustrated watercoloursand photographs by herself and her artist husband Nicholas. The result isan intimate portrait of a city that is at once vibrant and energeticas well as charming and nostalgic.
