Ocean Park Hong Kong (香港海洋公園) was opened in 1977 and located at the southern part of Hong Kong Island. It happened to be a huge holiday for mainland Chinese during our visit, thus the park was really crowded.
We stayed at BP International House （香港龍堡國際賓館） for the first two nights in Hong Kong before transferring to Disney’s Hollywood Hotel later on.
BP is the acronym for Baden Powell, the founder of Scout Movement. The 25-storey building is actually the Hong Kong Scout Centre; the headquarters only occupied a few floors though, the rest are hotel rooms and facilities.
Great location, reasonable price, nice staff. Room was small, but it’s probably a norm in Hong Kong where land and space are in premium. And if you are lucky you might get a decent room view of Tsim Sha Tsui and a bit of Victoria Harbour.
A Symphony of Lights (幻彩詠香江) is an orchestrated light and laser show featured on buildings situated on both sides of the Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong. It’s the world’s largest permanent light and sound show. It starts on 8pm daily (if the weather permits) and lasts about 15 minutes.
Malaysian tourism commercial with our famous tagline and a beautiful song.
Malaysia is celebrating 50 years of independence in 2007, and the government has designated this as a Visit Malaysia Year. Check out the promotion video for this special occasion.
I don’t always boost about things from my country but I think we have some pretty amazing tourism campaigns. The Malaysia Truly Asia slogan is also a classic, albeit a controversial one. A few of our neighbours are not that happy with the tagline, but I’ll leave the long story for another day.
