"Anyone who comes to Hong Kong should stay at the Peninsula at least once!" said James Clavell, when author Andreras Augustin called him at his home in Switzerland.
He shared this point of view with many celebrities:
"Know what I do first thing after arriving in Hong Kong? I take a front room at The Peninsula, open the curtains and watch the ships in the harbour passing by."
This was the second book in the FAMOUS HOTELS series - we still have a few collectors copies left. This book is the first official biography of The "Pen". After all, The Peninsula is the grand old lady of Hong Kong. She has seen the colony through all imaginable ups and downs. All the great names of the past come alive again. Famous figures parade through this book. Celebrated characters formed The Pen‘s history created legends and became eventually legends themselves.
"Full of fascinating details."
