The Upper Floor

The Upper Floor

Ching Shu Hin Guest House, Ping Shan, Hong Kong view map

The design of the guest rooms on the upper floor is
elegant and auspicious rather than luxurious.

The wood carvings blended with western motifs and
Chinese auspicious symbols including birds, deers and flowers.

Bamboo, which represents longevity in Chinese culture,
is heavily used in the decoration.
