Hi There,

This is a typical scenary in Eastern China in the Suzhou\Hangzhou area.   Unlikely to be anywhere in Hong Kong.


Hi there T,

Appreciate that! With this indication, it might help to find out which village it is.


Hi There,

Google search could get you quite a few similar photos with houses and bridges.  In yours, the bridge may still be around, but the houses lare likely be gone over the years.

The water way in the photo were likely a section of the local canel network, built a long time (many dynasties) ago.  Same as the stone bridge.  Even some Hollywood blockbusters was shot in the area.  Say, Mission Impossible III.
