Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

PCP/Faster - very astute from both of you. A fishing port on a small island. You can walk through the village but it would be difficult to drive. Most of the houses back onto the water. A bit like Venice without the gondolas but smaller and not as pretty. Last picture clue.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

So an Island ...but that looks like a river...Chinese signs and Coca Cola?

Somewhere in Thailand?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I can see Kanji but can't make them out, so it would be China or Hong Kong - somehow the last picture immediately made me think of some scenes from "Enter the Dragon" so I guess it might be an outlying island from Hong Kong. I need to get Google fired up.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Not Thailand.

The village occupies an island formed by a fork in the river. It also occupies the river bank on the larger island. Confusingly the island and the village which spreads beyond the island share the same name.

The larger island is well know for it’s Buddhist temples and monasteries, including a lesser know monastery dedicated to Tuoluo the female Buddha.

Edit: fixed typo

I re-read that and realized that is a little misleading. The village occupies the banks of the small island, the banks of the larger island and an island like area where the river meets the narrow channel between the islands.

Not Zhoushan - further South.

The larger island is the largest in the group and has a neighbor, about half the size, that is better known.

I need to go out for a couple of hours - I'll post some serious clues if no one has got it by the time I get back.
