A trip to Hongkong


My first trip to Hongkong was in June 2016, I went there on my  business visit.





I stayed there for 3 days,Kowloon District which is less expensive than other places in Hong Kong.
There are lots of skyscrapers and High rise buildings everywhere, I must say Hong Kong comes in top 10 list of countries with max high-rise building in the world.
There are lots of beautiful places in hongkong & The one which i like the most was VICTORIA HARBOUR, Which is between HONGKONG ISLANDS & KOWLOON DISTRICT.
I gonna share you details of Victoria Harbour and other places as well below.

About HONGKONG....

Hong Kong is among the world's most beautiful skylines with a backdrop of Victoria Peak.

Before China open its doors to world for trade & Business. All of the business of china was done through HongKong and export of almost everything was through Hong Kong ports.
Hong Kong still caters lots of Export-import Business of china, through exist as one of the busiest International trade port of Asia.

Hong Kong has the tallest skyline in the world with two of the twenty tallest buildings in the world all in a small area around the bay.

The very cheap ride (2 HKG $) on Star Ferry across the harbor is fun and is like a poignant mini-tour of Hong Kong. For kids with little experience on boats in the ocean, the ride on boats in the harbor is a thrill.
Public transport in hongkong, especially Taxi is very costly.I would highly suggest to take ferry if you wish to travel from Kowloon District to Hong Kong Islands.

Wonderful and stunning views of the city and harbor area can be had in the observation decks of the tallest buildings and from Victoria Peak. During the Symphony of lights most evenings, the view is beautiful and memorable.

The harbor is quite beautiful and is worth seeing in a tour of Hongkong .It is a strategic location and was an important part of the British Empire. Now it plays an important part in China's foreign trade and for Hong Kong's tourism.

Touring Activities

Ride the Star Ferry: 

The ride costs almost nothing. The ferries pass back and forth about every 8 to 13 minutes and have two passenger levels. The view from the lower level is better. The ferry boats have an old European look.

Enjoy the Avenue of Stars and the Symphony of Lights. Walk around and take pictures.

See the harbor from the tall, artistically-built skyscrapers.

Shop at the Harbour City Mall. It’s Hong Kong’s biggest mall.

Scenic Vantage Points

Four places to go for a special view of the harbor are the ICC Tower, the Avenue of Stars, Central Plaza, and Victoria Peak.
The 108-story International commerce centre with its observation deck overlooks the harbor from astounding heights. It was finished in 2011. Its Sky100 Deck is a local tourist highlight.
The Avenue of stars is a special promenade with benches. Handprints of famous greats of the Hong Kong movie industry are inlaid. It fronts the harbor between the Star Ferry Terminal and the Hongkong museum of Art. It passes by the Hong Kong Cultural Center and the interesting egg-shaped dome of the space museum with a mock up of the front end of the Space Shuttle.

From the Avenue of Stars at dusk, you can watch the Symphony of lights. spectacle of the buildings lit up above the harbor in concert with the audio playing on the speakers behind you. No other city in the world is lit up in a concerted light and sound spectacle almost every night with lasers and skylights playing on the bottom of the clouds and colors reflecting off the wavy water.

Central Plaza is the third-tallest building in the city at 374 meters (1,227 feet) tall with 78 stories. The Hong Kong City Church meets at the top. It is known as the highest church in the world located inside a skyscraper. The chapel at the top of the building has glass walls on all sides and during services in the mornings, visitors can admire the view of both Victoria Peak and the ships passing below their feet accompanied by the great music for free.

Victoria Peak may be the most memorable place to view the harbor, especially after a half hour or hour walk through the city park above Mid-levels. If you are thirsty or hungry there is a big mall with restaurants, refreshment places and a Starbucks. The Peak Tram also goes up there, as do city buses.

Harbor Sectors

The natural harbor is quite big and long and is divided into three parts. The part most visitors see includes the area between Tsim Sha Tsui and Hong Kong Island.
The Star Ferry Terminal is located on the Tsim Sha Tsui side next to the promenade called the Avenue of stars. Tall buildings are clustered around this part of the Harbor. The Star Ferry’s pier is only about a kilometer away from Hong Kong Island.
Two miles east of this area will be a US$14,000,000,000 cruise terminal and residential and shopping complex called the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal. The first portion of this complex that is set to open in 2013 will accommodate the world's largest cruise vessels.
To the west is a large, impressive, and busy container port. The Kwai Tsing Container Port is the world's 3rd busiest container port and is in the northwestern part of the harbor. That is where much of the export wealth of Hong Kong is funneled through, and it is one of the most important ports for China.
The container port area is amazing to see if you haven't seen big ports before. See it by riding the double-decker buses along West Kowloon Highway. You can see the view better from the upper deck of these buses.

History

The Treaty of Nanking between China and Britain in 1843 stipulated that Hong Kong was a part of the British Empire. Victoria Harbor gradually became a major port because it was close to Canton and along the major shipping lines between Japan and Singapore.
According to records, in 1844 only 538 ships docked there.
From these small beginnings, by 1931 over 42,000,000 tons of cargo was shipped through.
During the 1950s and the 1960s, Hong Kong flourished as a manufacturing center.
In the1970s, containerized shipping allowed much faster throughput of manufactured products.
Reclamation projects have changed the look of the harbor. Now there is a major reclamation and construction project going on in Central next to the ferry piers. Tourist attractions are planned for the new venue beside the IFC Towers.

Travel Essentials

  • Location: Between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.
  • MTR Trains: If you are coming from the airport, take the Airport Express MTR and get off at Hong Kong Station in Central. If you are coming from the border, you can get off at Tsim Sha Tsui station and enjoy the short walk through the crowded multicultural streets of Tsim Sha Tsui. During your walk you can maybe see faces from a hundred countries along the way.
  • Best Time to Visit: There is a lot of rain in the summer, but if there isn't a storm, the weather is generally warm and pleasant. Hong Kong is still fairly warm and is drier in October and November. The Symphony of lights  starts at 8 pm if weather permits.

Nearby Attractions

Victoria Harbor is a major visitor attraction for millions of people from all over the world who visit Hong Kong each year.
Both sides of Victoria Harbor have interesting tourist attractions. Enjoy the sea breeze and tour the attractions around the harbor including great museums, free public parks, zoos and amusement areas, outstanding architecture, hiking and beautiful scenery.
Most of the favorite tourist sites are around the harbor in the Kowloon area, Hong Kong Island and Lantau. Tsim Sha Tsui has four good museums and the Hong Kong Cultural Center and can be toured in a day's tour with a guide map.

Maps and tourist information are available for free at the Star Ferry Hong Kong Tourism Board’s office at the Star Ferry in TST. Without a map, the area is confusing to walk around in.
The International finance center, houses the glitzy and luxurious IFC Mall.
St.John's Cathedral  is near the IFC Mall.
The Bank of China tower is one of Hong Kong's most striking skyscrapers, and it was designed by the famous architect I.M. Pei. It is like a crystal in the sky. It was once the tallest building outside the US before the skyscraper boom began around the world in the 1990s.
The Golden Mile on Nathan Road is a street for shopping with malls, Kowloon Park and St.Andrews
One of best part of my tour was, Victoria Harbour, Ferry ride, Madame Tussaud wax museum.You also take in your notice that never book or plan your holidays for hongkong whenever there is holiday in China, as it gets most congested everywhere, the hotels will be cramped and fully booked.

Current situation of China -2016 . Guangzhou City!

Hello, My name is Ashfaque, I'm from North India. I have a business from China & so I am regular traveller to China specially Guangzhou City.

Guangzhou City:
Guangzhou is the third largest city of China,in the Guangdong District,after Beijing & Shanghai. Guangzhou is actually a Business city, although have some good places as tourist attractions. Not as good as Beijing or Shanghai.

As Guangzhou is famous for Business, here you will find people coming for their trade & Business purposes. Guangzhou has dubbed as one of the business capital of Asia also.

People often seen here busy with their business traveller, looking for their products, visiting, exploring markets for new products & design.People won't find any difficulty for travelling, like visiting factories or looking for a particular market, as public transport is one of the best in China.

 Although language is little problem but it can taken care of if you hire translator or if you are visiting a factory, then you don't need to worry as they can guide taxi to their place. You just have to make the factory person talk to the taxi driver. But be careful as it had happened with me too & I feel little awkward to mention here that when you pay taxi driver fare, if you are are taking balance money, carefully check whether it is original or not, as taxi driver are on top of using fake currencies.


Now,I  am gonna dicuss about 'Is China really facing recession '
I remember in year 2006, China business was growing in a fast pace, even though China opens up one of the biggest commodity market "futian market" in yiwu city, zhijiang province.
It was a well planned decision of china government for selecting choicest location, it is just 2 hour maximum travelling time through fast train from well established shanghai. 

Major airlines also operates their flight from shanghai and China southern Airlines from guangzhou. Yiwu market opens up lots of business option for not so big importers,hence a good business exchanges between mainly from yiwu and india.

As I have business from guangzhou, (third largest city of china) I travelled mostly to guangzhou and then to yiwu & any other city thereon.
Let me clearly mention, business dealing is very different in guangzhou from yiwu, as it a very big city, people here are usually seems to be in hurry.

People here are always busy, when I visit markets and doing some business purchasing ,people greet and welcome you nicely ,and as you are done they engage themselves in other work and won't listen to you if you got some questions or something else.
Now , as business were going good, markets and factories were busy all round the year.

I will come to the year 2014,
What I had seen in china is their economy was falling, American dollar keeps on griping and crunching more and more. Slowly customers footfall started crumbling, I never seen there ,sometimes the markets which used to be crowded with customer, was like completely empty.

The shop keepers who used to be always seen engage in some work, were started seeing playing cards outside their shops, I started enquiring with people with whom I do business,answer were rather dis-satisfying, they told me lots of factories started closing. 

Lots of workers going back to Their native places. Shops and factories who very rarely talk on phones and reply very late on emails nowdays started calling me, sending emails , asking for orders.
At last, what I never thought was happening now. China really facing recession now.

If you wish to start business from china ,this is the right time to start. I'm sure you will get the deals which you cannot resist. For any queries, you can contact me on - ashfaquegnabi@gmail.com .
Will return with some new blog.

Thanks
