Hong Kong’s Southside – the glimmering southern shore of the main island – is a weekend paradise of restaurants, markets and beaches. But Lorette has discovered much more. Here are vignettes of the old villages, complete with traditional watchtowers, temples and scarecrows; sketches from visits to a pristine marine reserve; a sampan trip to see the fisherfolk, and a secret tunnel to underground wine cellars. See rugged shores and stunning mountain views, elegant Victorian waterworks, and riotous dragonboat races at Stanley beach!
