The "Hong Kong Guide" 2017 edition produced by the Lands Department (LandsD) is on sale starting today (January 6). And the "e-HongKongGuide", a newly launched electronic map book, has also been uploaded onto LandsD's website for free download.
The 424-page new "Hong Kong Guide" provides detailed maps covering the whole territory of Hong Kong. It also contains indexes of streets, places and villages, estates and buildings, schools, public services, and leisure and cultural facilities, as well as information on public transportation.
It is the first time this year's Hong Kong Guide has been spiced up with a number of community art maps provided by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC) and created by local school children and teachers with different themes. These art maps, with interesting topics and heart-warming messages, were drawn with purity and sincerity and are worth appreciation.
The community art maps have touched up the function-oriented Hong Kong Guide and given it a theme of "Mapping with Children", with an intention to guide the public to explore the community through "a Book of Affection, a Map of Love."
The "Hong Kong Guide" 2017 edition, priced at $75, is available at all sales outlets of the LandsD's Survey and Mapping Office (SMO), six post offices (General Post Office, Kowloon Central, Tsim Sha Tsui, Mong Kok, Kwun Tong and Tuen Mun Central), certain local bookstores and the SMO's online map shop.
