1) Full-Day Hong Kong Tour
Take a walk through the Sheung Wan Dried Food & Herbal Market and learn some of the theory behind traditional belief as shopkeepers and herbal practitioners introduce you to their abundant herbs and medicines, and gain insight into old age practices.
Hong Kong is rightly famed all over the world for the stunning views from Victoria Peak - a sight that never fails to amaze visitors as they behold the almost unbelievable panorama virtually stretching as far as the eye can see. Neatly bisecting the near and far land masses is Victoria Harbor, its waters constantly being traversed by all manner of craft ranging from stately passenger liners and plodding freighters to sprightly Star Ferries and darting jetfoils.
At Aberdeen Fishing Village, you will board a sampan and take a cruise through one of the remaining Tanka fishing fleets. The Tanka, a fisherfolk who are native to the southern coastal areas of Guangdong province, anchor their fleet in the Aberdeen typhoon shelter. In ancient times it was often believed that many Tanka were born and died on the sea without ever setting foot on land.
You will stop for a home visit with a local family for a real insider look at local life. This afternoon you will board a private junk, and experience the romance of a cruise around Victoria Harbor. The spectacular backdrop of Hong Kong’s fantastic skyline will fire your imagination as the city's dazzling neon cityscape emerges. During the sailing, Hong Kong’s landmark buildings and sites of interest will be showcased for your pleasure, and the magic of Hong Kong comes alive.
2) MACAU DAY TOUR
Fly to Macau via turbojet and start the day with a visit to the ruins of St. Paul’s Church. The holy church was designed by a father of Italian nationality and was constructed with the help of the Japanese technology of superlative craftsmanship. The foundation was laid in 1602 and it was completed in 1637. However, because of an indissoluble cause, the church caught fire three times; one after another and it was rebuilt after each fire, which is a living historical testimony.
Then head over to the Temple of A-MA, the oldest Chinese temple in Macau which is dedicated to the seafarers’ goddess “A-Ma.” Legend has it that a wealthy man refused a poor girl looking for passage to Canton, but a boatman decided to give her passage. During the voyage, a typhoon sunk all the ships at sea; all except that girl’s boat. When they arrived at Canton, the girl disappeared into the heavens.
The Macau Tower stands at 338 meters high and is the 10th tallest tower in the world. The observation deck is on the 58th and 61st level where you can enjoy views of Macau and of the Pearl River Delta.
Visit the Sands Casino which opened in May of 2004 and is a one million-square-foot casino and entertainment complex located in the one-time Portuguese colony of Macau on China’s southeastern coast. See if luck is on your side and have fun gambling!
End the day with lunch at the Macau Military Club, which was built in 1870 as a private association for culture and recreation for Macau's military elite and select civilians as guest members. The Club is well known for its award winning restaurant specializing in gourmet Portuguese cuisine and fine wines, and its stunning colonial architecture.
