Lantau, the largest island of Hong Kong, has for a long time been home to sparse settlements due to its remoteness and the fact that it was only accessible by boat. Development picked up in the 1980s and 1990s, following the construction of Tung Chung New Town and Hong Kong International Airport. Fortunately, Lantau still preserves most of its captivating pristine landscape, unique countryside culture and historical heritage.
This book takes readers on a journey through the eastern, central and western parts of Lantau Island, unfolding an extraordinary array of natural and cultural landscapes that interweave the traditional with the modern, highlands with lowlands, bustle with tranquillity. Selected works of three renowned local photographers - Kelvin Yuen, Will Cho and Tugo Cheng, which were showcased in an exhibition under the same project, are also included in this book, allowing readers to view the beauty of Lantau Island through their lenses.
