Hong Kong. Then home . . .
Day four of UKTI Mission to China (Hong Kong) This morning we made the two hour journey by train to Hong Kong. Our time in China has been extremely ‘full-on’ and there has been a lot to take in, but today I have enjoyed the chance to relax and enjoy my new surroundings at my own pace. Having seen a very small part of China already, Hong Kong really is a unique blend of eastern and western influences, offering a dynamic city with very diverse attractions, but set alongside some stunning countryside. This afternoon I visited the RICS office in Hong Kong and met with Darren Jenson, Director of RICS Asia, following which I met up with the delegation again and we visited The Peak Tower (see pic). The Peak is one of the architectural icons of Hong Kong and, set some 428m above sea level, boasts the highest viewing platform in the City. This apparently gives spectacular panoramic views of the both the cityscape and the green landscape beyond, I say apparently because it was foggy! The evening rounded off with dinner and tomorrow morning, before setting off for the UK, we have our final UKTI briefing at the British Consulate General in Kong Kong.Back
