The June issue of That’s PRD is out now, in both paper-and-ink form citywide and digital PDF form on our website. Here, Editor-in-Chief Matthew Bossons introduces the magazine:
Ah, June: The heat is back, the kids are finishing up school and many of you will be jetting off home or on a grand adventure around Asia, Europe, or wherever. I, however, will be staying right here in the PRD. Now, that’s not because I don’t want to leave, but rather, starting from early June, flights become much more expensive. And let’s face it: Russia’s Far East is nicer in November anyway.
All jokes aside, if you, like myself, are going to be kickin’ around the Greater Bay Area this month and are looking to keep yourself occupied, this magazine is going to be your best friend. Inside, we have a rundown of the city’s hottest rooftop patios, an array of new F&B spots to check out and a fascinating cover story on Chinese opera. (And, if you think opera is all singing and boredom, you clearly haven’t seen it China-style).
Additionally, in our City section, we have a feast for your eyes: A selection of amazing images taken around China by Chinese-American photographer Mark Leong, personally selected by the photo-snapper himself.
I’m going to keep this month’s note short and sweet, but will wrap it up by welcoming our new Shenzhen editor, Phoebe Kut, to the team. We look forward to working with you and know that all of our readers are excited to get your take on life in South China!
Until next month,
