- Description: Join Lindsay Varty, author of the best selling book, Sunset Survivors, on an exclusive walking tour through the streets of Hong Kong. Explore an oft forgotten district of Hong Kong; home to craftsmen, market workers and gangsters alike. Guests will visit a fourth-generation-owned pawnshop, two elderly brothers who continue to hand hammer copperware pots and gongs, little Ms. Ho who makes and sells traditional Chinese weighing scales, and a mysterious letter writer in the famous Jade Market, who quietly taps away at his 50 year old typewriter. Along the way, Lindsay recounts intriguing stories about the lives of these wonderful ‘survivors’ and how they have seen their lives and businesses change.
