In Pics: Beauty along the Sun Yat Sen Trail

On a rainy day with umbrellas in full bloom, I set out along the Sun Yat Sen Trail as a remembrance of the founder of the Chinese nation in the month of the Chinese National Day.

How would Dr. Sun Yat Sen, a figure well-loved among Chinese in the world and a master negotiator able to bridge differences, view the recent protests in Hong Kong? How would he set out to resolve the crisis in the birthplace of his revolutionary ideals? From a walk along the Sun Yat Sen Trail with most shops closed in anticipation of protests, I believe he would bridge differences through thought and understanding, for he once famously said: “To understand is difficult, to act is easy.”. And on that note, here are some of the beautiful spots along the Sun Yat Sen Trail to reminisce and provoke thought:
