    • see LonelyPlanet.com/destinations/north_east_asia/hong_kong The Lonely Planet's introduction starts with... " Hong Kong has the big city specials like smog, odour, 14 million elbows and an insane love of clatter. But it's also efficient, hushed and peaceful: the transport network is excellent, the shopping centres are sublime, and the temples and quiet corners of parks are contemplative oases. "
      As usual this web site is full of useful and fun places to visit and includes a many maps.

      see www.nationalgeographic.com/traveler/articles/1004hongkong.html article by Jan Morris in National Geographic Magazine online at
      Morris begins the 2001 article with the words " Hong Kong is our century exemplifiedhistorically, ethnically, architecturally, socially, economically, aesthetically and, above all, sensually.  It is a place you feel.  Founded by Europeans, developed by Asians, governed by Chinese, designed and run by entrepreneurs, architects, economists, and adventurers from the four corners of the world, in its streets and waterways you may sense the turning of the Earth itself.
