Shanyi Goes to China by Sungwan So

Arriving first on the island of Hong Kong, Shan-yi goes by train to Panyu in mainland China to see where her grandmother was born, visits her family's 700-year-old ancestral hall and embarks on a busy schedule of sightseeing, meeting relations, eating and shopping.
