Welcome to Rodmaher.org.uk
Hong Kong Page
I've never been here, but I've always wanted to go, so I will be visiting in December 2005.
Flying into Hong Kong
After The Trip
I have now been to Hong Kong. I spent 4 days there which was just long enough to start getting used to the public transport system.
Hong Kong is now very much Chinese.
I was surprised that apart from hotel employees, very few locals could speak English.
The Chinese food was outstanding and nothing like your typical English-Chinese takeaway. Although I did draw the line at Roasted Pork with Jelly-Fish.
Hong Kong is otherwise what you may expect...
Lots of high rise buildings
Nice quiet Islands...
...with quiet streets.
And not much "Junk" in the harbour.
Hong Kong Tram.
While I was there The World Trade Organisation was having a global meeting. The parks in Hong Kong were full of various rallies and demonstrations. Some streets were "no-go" areas.
Overall a nice place to go if you have a bit of time and money. Unfortunately I had neither in great abundance, but Hong Kong was still worth a visit.
