This week’s podcast was recorded in Hong Kong in the week that the new Disneyland Hong Kong opened on the man made landfill island where the (very nice) airport is.

In the podcast, I look at the reaction to the new Disneyland (the 3rd outside of the USA and also the smallest) and then explore what else there is to do in Hong Kong. As it is mostly shopping, I talk about a few great places to go to do that. I do recommend some short half day tours that are worth looking at doing.

Finally I look at the recent history of Hong Kong and Cathy Pacific. Cathy is the Hong Kong based airline, and member of the One World Alliance that I travelled from London Heathrow to Hong Kong on. In their very nice First Class.

Next week’s podcast will be recorded in and be about Sydney Australia.
