Southern District: heritage, beaches and sights
Southern District is the subject of this week's District Focus. The area makes for a perfect day trip with plenty to see and do. There are famous heritage sites, beautiful beaches as well as Stanley Market, a must-visit tourist destination. Seven enthusiastic young photographers - Chan Sho-po, Ma Han-son, Ko Fa-chuen, Hui Ka-ling, Ip Hei-man, Ma Wai-shan and Lee Hoi-yan - spent a day exploring the district under the guidance of artists John Fung Kin-chung and Lo Wai-hang. They enjoyed visiting heritage sites, the bustling market and waterfront, and the area's beautiful beaches.
All photographs were taken by participants in the 'Through Our Eyes' programme, organised by The Robert H.N. Ho Family Foundation. The District Focus series is jointly run by the foundation and Young Post. The cameras used were sponsored by Panasonic and the Shun Hing Education and Charity Fund.
