Brain Game 25.11.2010

the brain game

This week’s question:

“What would you plan for a visitor with one day in HK?”

Alice Leung, 16, Ho Fung College

Hong Kong is known for its wide variety of delicious foods and drinks, and also for being a shopper’s paradise. I would take the tourist to Kam Fung Restaurant, a cha chaan teng in Wan Chai, to try the famous egg tarts and Hong Kong-style milk tea. We could also share a pineapple bun. Later on, I’d take him or her on the MTR and go to Tsim Sha Tsui. We would go on a shopping spree – clothes, accessories and much more. We’d relax at Starbucks after a long walk around all the malls; Starbucks here serves beverages that are only available in Hong Kong. After dinner at The Sweet Dynasty restaurant on Canton Road, The Peak would be the best place to end a fantastic day.

Hong Kong is always associated with skyscrapers, jostling crowds, shopping and a luxurious lifestyle. I’d take my visitor on a hike to show him or her the other side of city. The trails in Hong Kong are well mapped and marked, making it easy to enjoy the beautiful scenery and fresh air of the countryside. Next, I would take them to Ladies’ Market and other streets of this kind, where we can find many cheap souvenirs. The Peak is a must-see at night. The panoramic views of the city would definitely impress my visitor – it’s among the most spectacular in the world.

For a first-time visitor to Hong Kong, I would take him or her to see the view from The Peak and the harbourfront in the morning. After that, we would roam around Tsim Sha Tsui to check out the shops and grab some lunch. We would take the Ngong Ping 360 to the giant Buddha statue on Lantau Island in the afternoon, then head back to Hong Kong Island to visit some monuments, such as Tin Hau Temple and the Old Wan Chai Post Office. Dinner would be at one of the many eateries in Causeway Bay, and to end our day, we’d go back to the Tsim Sha Tsui harbourfront to watch the Symphony of Lights.

Votes close on Tuesdays at noon.
