Series 7, Episode 6 – Hong Kong
In the last of the current series, Joe Lindsay and Vogue Williams take advantage of the new direct air route to the former British colony of Hong Kong in China. With over seven million residents and more skyscrapers than any other city in the world, it’s a dazzling mix of east and west, new and ancient. You’ll find designer shops, Chinese medical practitioners, Buddhist temples and some of the best food you’ll ever taste. Joe and Vogue try the city’s street food, make a pilgrimage to the Big Buddha on Lantau Island and journey through the stilted fishing village of Tai O. Closer to home, in this week’s short Getaway Tommy Bowe is away with the fairies in Carlingford, Co. Louth.
