Destination Pearl River Delta


A quick plug: There's a new magazine out in Hong Kong called Destination PRD. It's a travel guide to the cities of the Pearl River Delta, the economic powerhouse on the Mainland adjacent to Hong Kong. The magazine is quarterly and contains listings and articles about tourist attractions, wining and dining, accomodation, transport and business facilities in the region.

The magazine is distributed in Hong Kong, but most of the contents can be found online at, a website produced by Danwei contributors.
