INDUSTRY.co.id - Hong Kong - This March, from a series of world-class art events to the Hong Kong Sevens, Hong Kong is teeming with exciting activities.
To add to the delight, the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) was glad to have Korean mixed martial artist Choo Sung-hoon – contender from NETFLIX Physical 100 – tour around Hong Kong, discovering the hidden gems of the city solo dolo.
Choo Sung-hoon recently came to town for the "Pro-Am Tournament" for the World City Championship presented by the Hong Kong Golf Club. Following the tournament, Choo was invited by HKTB onto a day tour in Hong Kong specially designed for the suave and sophisticated.
His day time itinerary included a deluxe party tram ride on Hong Kong island; dim-sum tasting in Woo Cheong Tea House in Wan Chai, as well as refined suit making at century-old custom tailor Loa Hai Shing. After enjoying happy hour in a rooftop bar Cruise in North Point, Choo wound down with a truly local hotpot dinner in Tin Hau.
Choo recalled that the last time he visited Hong Kong was seven years ago. This time around, he was just as excited. “Like other Koreans, I have been really missing Hong Kong – especially the food and the attractions. Hong Kong is such a charming city where you never get bored because there is always something new. My wife and daughter Sarang were here with me on this trip. They headed off to world class art happenings in town including Art Basel while I got to enjoy some me time. With all the culinary delights and spectacular view, what more could a tourist ask for? I was here for around 100 hours and it was just as challenging as Physical 100 since I had to explore the city one could never get enough of. What impressed me the most was the TramOramic Tour Tram. A century-old vehicle traversing a metropolis is just so symbolic of Hong Kong – a city that blends the Old perfectly with the New. I also enjoyed my happy hour in the sky restaurant-bar Cruise in North Point. Taking a drink paired with a world-class panoramic view of Victoria Harbour is just a pure pleasure,” Choo remarked. He concluded his day of excursion with an authentic Hong Kong style hotpot dinner in Tin Hau. (ANTARA)
