Discovering cultures by Nancy Weststrate

China, Hong Kong, United Arab Emirates
Discovering beautiful and free Hong Kong, communistic and Breathtaking China, followed by Dazzling Dubai and the arabic culture.
Great tour starting in Hong Kong, followed by Guilin, Yangshuo and Beijing. Perfect combination of beautifull nature, great culture, clean cities & friendly people. Dubai is a big contrast and fun way to end the holidays. Also here; very friendly people! Recommendations: - Google translate is a great help as not many people speak English, not even in Hong Kong. - Look up hotel addresses and places to visit in Chinese language, handy for taxi drivers. ( app already has this option: show address in local language).

    Hong Kong - the Western city of Asia

    Hong Kong has many faces. Start with a nice Harbour cruise at the bay to get an overview. Best area to stay (hotel) is Kowloon, close to the bay. Take the ferry to Hong Kong island in the evening around 20:00 to see a magnificent skyline with light show. Visit Victoria Peak for amazing skyline (take the tram or a taxi). Go to the night market at Temple street and bargain for your souvenirs to take back home.
