Hothong kong



by Nancy Catree

Hong Kong, China

One Of The Most Fascinating Cities In The World

Although British traders established Hong Kong in 1841, its past goes back much further.  Small farming and fishing communities were scattered throughout the area as early as Third Century B.C.

The people of the land have extraordinary customs and fascinating beliefs.  A respect for tradition, a firm faith in all things spiritual, mystical and familiar.  These are the keys to the mysterious Chinese soul beating at the heart of Hong Kong.

There is an astonishing variety of both Western and Oriental goods.  There are sophisticated department stores, as well as many smaller stores and street markets.

The nights are endless in Hong Kong.  There are many activities to choose from…like have dinner on a sampan or going to a Chinese theatre-restaurant you could also enjoy a Chinese opera or dance all night at a glittering night club.  There are plays, recitals, the Hong Kong Philharmonic and many art festivals.  The movie houses show American, European and Cantonese films.  There are also two racetracks, which have advanced computers to monitor the action on both the track and in the stands.  In Hong Kong, there are endless possibilities for fun.  It’s a great city in an exotic setting.

Almost every major international hotel chain is represented in Hong Kong. But my favorite is The Ritz Carlton Hong Kong.  This hotel is situated in the heart of the business and shopping districts.  The Ritz Carlton Hong Kong in Hong Kong is the exclusive resort in the midst of one of Asia’s largest and busiest metropolises.  It stands next to the Pacific Place at Connaught road, just a few steps away from the Star Ferry and adjacent to Hong Kong Park with the Peak Tram station.

The stunning views of Victoria Harbor or Victoria Peak are centrally located near the Ritz Carlton Hotel.  Step inside and get charmed by the sophistication.  Rich mahogany paneling and chandeliers, warm Asian grace and the style of times gone by prominent everywhere.

Being true to the status of a five star hotel, it brings to you a world of comfort.  The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong features:Outdoor heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi tub overlooking the famous Hong Kong Harbor.

Paris, France Paris, France

An Unforgettable Experience

France is the country of love and Paris proudly holds the title of the most beautiful city in the world.  No other place in the world can offer as many special moments as France.

But France is not just paradise for those in love.  It also offers unlimited choices to lovers of art, luxury and refinement, gastronomy, the nightlife and even sports.

France is the home of the Mona Lisa, Picasso, Olympic skiing on the snow covered Alps and vintage champagne.  Experience the gourmet cuisine and the Eiffel Tower, and all the quaint shoppes of Paris.

Follow the Seine to the west and you will be on the right bank.  Explore the Louvre (which was a royal palace for five centuries) and the many galleries.  Here lies the Mona Lisa, Louis XIV diamonds, the Venus de Milo and thousands of treasures and souvenirs of the past.

Cross the Seine to the left bank, “The intellectual side of Paris.”  For nearly a thousand years, it has been a university center with colleges, bookshops and publishers.  The left bank or “river gauche” also has magnificent buildings such as the Pantheon, where the great men of France are buried; the temple of intelligentsia-the Institute and the Clony Museum, which is a Gothic wonder.

Paris, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, is also the city that knows how to make people feel even more beautiful and seductive.  Paris is home to the world of haute couture, which is on constant display on the Rue de Fauborg Saint.  Great designers such as Lagerfeld, Yves Saint Laurent, Hermes and Chanel are housed on this famous strip.

There’s also a large black artistic community in Paris, consisting of musicians, entertainers and models.

Suggested Place To Stay – The Meurice, a luxury hotel located in the heart of Paris.  It is surrounded by beautiful gardens and outdoor Parisian cafes, and it is a beautiful place for a honeymoon.  This 5 star hotel used to be a palace, and it has a spa, and offers beautiful one bedroom suites with terraces that feature a spectacular 360 degree panoramic view of Paris.
