"Thousand Mile Bridge"

"Auyin Hill Resort"

Constructed based on the philosophy of "Feng Shui" (geomancy), the resort is one of a kind in the country. Every element has been placed relative to the principle of celestial and terrestrial positioning accuracy to enhance its charm "chi"(power).

Auyin Hill Resort is a fascinating garden of spectacular gateways, pathways, bridges and pavilions. This Resort is the creatin of Master Lau Soon Hing who originally undertook the project as a private hideaway. The elements of feng shui, literally "wind and water", are said to affect the health, prosperity and fortune of man. The splendour of Auyin has many vantage points but is perhaps best appreciated from the "Thousand Mile Bridge". Is it true?. I can't comment anything but the truth is only god can decide.
