  CELEBRITY MILLENNIUM – Asian Cruises early 2016


Celebrity Cruises

Millennium-class ships are among the largest and most feature-filled in the Celebrity fleet. Innovations include show lounges reminiscent of splendid opera houses, and an alternative restaurant where diners find themselves in the midst of authentic ocean liner decor and memorabilia. The spas simply have to be seen to be believed—they occupy nearly as much space inside as is devoted to the adjacent outdoor Lido Deck pool area.

  HONG KONG - A week with the YHA (Youth Hostel Association) 2.

 

A remarkably inexpensive option.

 

The youth hostel movement in Hong Kong can be traced back to the vision in 1972 of two men, Seamus Rainbird and Gerald Strickland. Strickland and Rainbird both believed that there was a pressing need in Hong Kong to establish safe, well managed hostel facilities for the growing number of young people in the territory. In particular, they had in mind the needs of those who would appreciate individual outdoor recreational activities rather than participation in the more organized institutional type programmes provided for large groups by a number of existing governmental and charitable bodies.

  HONG KONG - “The Land Between” (Morning Tour 5 hours)

Hong Kong Island was ceded to Britain under the Treaty of Nanking, but the area was too small to be viable and the original territory stopped at Boundary Street, hence its name. Britain wanted more land on which to farm and build, so in 1898 leased the New Territories from China. This increased the size of the colony by more than 10 times. The Lease was for 99 years and the region became  known as the “New Territories”. The region consisted of Lantau Island (the biggest of the group), Lamma Island, Cheung Chau Island, Tsing Yi and numerous smaller islands. A large piece of flat land which finished at the Shenzhen River,  formed most of the new boundary between Hong Kong and China.

  HONG KONG - Cheung Chau (Long Island) Tour with Dim Sum lunch

Cheung Chau is a beautiful, fascinating South China Sea island. It is easily reached from Hong Kong's main business district by high-speed ferry in thirty minutes, or preferably, if it's a sunny day, by slow ferry that takes one hour. It's a scenic boat ride, commencing with the spectacular highrise commercial buildings of the Central business didtrict and then the towering residential blocks which line the harbour foreshores all the way to harbour entrance. The contrast on arrival in the fishing harbour of Cheung Chau is extreme. There are no cars on Cheung Chau and the harbour front and bustling back streets are full of interest.

  HONG KONG - Heritage Tour (Morning Tour)

When most visitors think of Hong Kong, Heritage is not a word that springs to mind. Although most are aware of the long history of the ex British Colony, they see it as being all sky-scrapers and banks. Perhaps surprisingly, there is still quite a bit of heritage left in Hong Kong; from temples and fishing villages, to ancestral halls and old defensive walled villages.
