Take a step back to 1968 Hong Kong in this video shot by Frenchman Jean-Pierre Sauvager. Look out for the once-ubiquitous rickshaw, the Jumbo floating restaurant, traditional junk sailing boats and – most astoundingly – shots of a green Shenzhen before it was developed into China’s first special economic zone.

WATCH Sauvager’s video

Incroyable images prises par mon grand-père en 1968 lorsqu'il est venu à Hong Kong. Il a commenter la vidéo pour avoir plus de détails, vraiment à regarder..Regardez jusqu'a la fin vous allez halluciné si vous êtes deja allé à Shenzen!!
