Sasek, Miroslav – Fragrant Harbour

£78.00£190.00

This is, of course, Hong Kong by night. The word ‘Hong Kong’ (or 香港 for those who can) is an approximate phonetic rendering of the spoken Cantonese, and the Cantonese word actually means ‘fragrant harbour’. ‘Fragrance’ might stem from the fact that the harbour waters are sweetened by fresh water from the Pearl River; alternatively, it may refer to the sweet smell of incense being sold from the shore but carried by the wind across the harbour waters. Either way, it is no exaggeration to say that the view of Hong Kong harbour is one of the greatest views of the world.
