Tradition amid transition: Yuen Long, Hong Kong
A shocking attack by suspected triad members in Hong Kong has focused attention on Yuen Long, a northern district where the violence took place. It is a bustling district in Hong Kong’s New Territories, where, less than a century ago, visitors found little more than a cluster of agricultural villages. In the 1980s, Yuen Long’s town center was built and a new residential town called Tin Shui Wai was established.  But people in the district still cling to their cultural heritage and traditional roots. Denise Tsang, a reporter with the South China Morning Post, visits the neighborhood.

Yet distilleries in China remain optimistic they can follow the path to international fame taken by once-obscure drinks such as vodka and tequila. Watch the video above to find out more.
