Hong Kong Island Tour
Sunday, June 25
An excellent orientation tour of Hong Kong: the city changes so rapidly that it will refresh old memories and delight new visitors. Start with a tram ride to Victoria Peak for a panoramic view of the Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the surrounding islands. Travel to picturesque Repulse Bay and then to the fishing village of Aberdeen, a “floating community,” still very much a part of Hong Kong’s cultural landscape. While there, you can join an optional sampan to get a close-up look of life on the water. Finally, enjoy shopping among the stalls of Stanley Market, where you can pick up bargains on both casual wear and designer items.
Lantau Island and Dolphin Watching Tour
Monday, June 26
$88 US (Lunch Included)
Visitors joining this tour will have a unique opportunity to see Hong Kong's endangered pink dolphins in their scenic, natural habitat in and around the Sha Chau and Lung Kwu Chau Marine Park, on the western side of Hong Kong. The marine park has rich fisheries that provide important food for the pink dolphins (Indo-Pacific hump-backed dolphins). After dolphin-watching, lunch will be served at the Tai O fishing village at Lantau Island.
You can register for these tours when you register for the INFORMS International Hong Kong Meeting. Since space is limited for these tours, please select only one site visit so that other meeting attendees have a chance to participate.
