Chany's Hong Kong Trip 2002

2002 September 14 - 29


This was my first trip to Hong Kong; I had accepted a consulting assignment, so this gave me the opportunity to see the Far East on expenses!

Here are some details on the trip:

Airfare:  CAD $1398 on Air Canada (good for 12740 Aeroplan points!)

Hotel: MetroPark Hotel (Sept 14-22) and the Hotel New Harbour (Sept 22-28)

Exchange Rate: Approximately 4.9 HK$ per 1 CAD

Climate: Hot (25 to 30 degrees C) and humid; torrential rain the first couple of days

Fake Rolex Submariner Watch: HK$ 235
