HONG KONG, Sept. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- From 29 September to 30 November, Link's "Shatin Outing" campaign invites everyone to explore the origin and unique identity of Sha Tin District. Alongside this programme, Sha Kok Commercial Centre is also unveiling a new recreational area dedicated to art and leisure outside its mushroom-shaped cooked food stalls. This photogenic new area will link and connect communities under the banner of placemaking.
With a new limited-edition travel guide Shatin Outing, visitors to the district can discover exclusive travel tips while experiencing the joy of travelling to an exciting new destination. The book is now up for grabs, alongside a $50 cooked food stall voucher to be spent at designated cooked food stalls, a multifunctional outdoor pouch and a new product from French skincare brand Eau Thermale Avène, for shoppers who spend a minimum amount at designated shopping centres or markets during the campaign period.
Link will also organise a "Mushroom Drawings Exhibition"' to celebrate the International Mushroom Day on 15 October. The exhibition will showcase mushroom-shaped artworks co-created by over 100 primary and kindergarten students in Sha Tin from 14 to 16 October outside Sha Kok Commercial Centre. Coinciding with the exhibition will be a "Camera-friendly Bike Tour", featuring a route that showcases Sha Tin's famous spots in the district.
Travel goodies up for grabs, including the Shatin Outing guide to local hotspots
The travel guidebook Shatin Outing tells the story of Sha Tin from different angles, covering everything from its origins to Instagrammable hideaways such as the Swiss valley-like Lower Shing Mun Reservoir, the mellow Tai Wai Pink Footbridge loved by teenage girls, the Japanese garden of Che Kung Temple Sports Centre and the picturesque surroundings of Shing Mun Riverside etc.
Sha Tin District is culture, history, good food, architecture and leisure rolled into one. Every public housing estate in Sha Tin, from Wo Che Estate to Sha Kok Estate and from Hin Keng Estate to Mei Lam Estate, has its own architectural character. Hong Kong's iconic cooked food stall, lovingly dubbed the "Mushroom Pavilion", is a mushroom-shaped structure with an arched vent in the middle. It's the perfect place to savour the myriad tastes of Hong Kong, such as stir-fried dishes, traditional Cantonese cuisine and delectable tea sets.
The Shatin Outing guidebook will be distributed for free at over 30 cafés in Kowloon and the New Territories, including Uchi Coffee and The Alchemist Café in Sha Tin and Coffee Slave in Kwun Tong. Come and grab a copy now.
