The Creative City Guide literally maps out over 150 destinations all over the SAR, ranging from the outskirts of New Territories and Kowloon to Hong Kong Island. Its authors, including Huthart, journalist Louisa Wong and an esteemed set of designers, writers and entrepreneurs that know Hong Kong from the inside out, provide an innovative and insightful list of places to visit.
