Description - Streets: Exploring Kowloon by Jason Wordie

The book starts with a district familiar to all visitors - Tsim Sha Tsui - but then moves into the hinterland of Kowloon, taking the reader and walker far beyond the well-known streets of tourist-oriented shops and hotels. Streets: Exploring Kowloon, like its companion, Streets: Exploring Hong Kong Island, guides the reader with maps and travel information to take 45 walks throughout Kowloon, each along a specific street pointing out historically and culturally important sites, but also the curious and the intriguing.

Buy Streets: Exploring Kowloon by Jason Wordie from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
