Hong Kong Tourism introduces Discover Hong Kong Like a Local in India

first_imgHong Kong has long been a popular holiday destination among Indian travellers for the cosmopolitan city with iconic skyline and world-class theme parks. However, Hong Kong has a lot more to offer. The Hong Kong Tourism Board’s (HKTB) new brand approach ‘Discover Hong Kong like a Local’ aims to highlight new and unique experiences that will appeal to travellers who are now seeking authentic local experiences where they can see, hear, taste and feel the real culture of a destination. The three new core experiences that will be introduced under ‘Discover Hong Kong Like a Local’ include local culture, great outdoors and local dining, each of which will have new and exciting attractions, experiences and itineraries curated specifically for Indian travellers.Hong Kong is known as a vibrant, bustling city but it is also a melting pot of rich culture that blends a modern city with ancient traditions. Under its local culture program, HKTB will highlight experiences like walking tours around rejuvenated neighbourhoods of Old Town Central which represents a confluence of East and West and Sham Shui Po which is known as a shopping paradise for bargain deals, visits to local temples and monasteries like Po Lin Monastery and Man Mo temple, ancient traditions like tea appreciation, enjoying local festivals and attractions like Dragon Boat festival, Aqua Luna cruise, Victoria Peak, gondola ride to Big Buddha and nightlife experiences including pub crawls.Local dining has been one of the key drivers among Indian travellers. With 14,000 restaurants that includes Michelin star dining to street foods, the HKTB will highlight different experiences including must-try local foods like dim sums, egg tarts, lo mai gai, roast goose and vegetarian dining options that are relatively unknown among Indian travellers. A new introduction to the Indian market this year will be the ‘Great Outdoors’. What most travellers are unaware of is that 40% of Hong Kong is covered in nature and country parks and the city has a lot to offer in outdoor experiences. Under the program, the HKTB will highlight urban/nature hiking trails, cycling path with scenic views city parks, outdoor adventure sports, visits to beaches and quaint villages in outlying islands and a GeoPark which is a UNESCO heritage site.To promote ‘Discover Hong Kong Like a Local’, the HKTB will invest in a number of consumer and trade programs. A recent consumer program included the collaboration with Bollywood actress Yami Gautam. Given her popularity among Indians and her affinity for travel, Gautam was chosen to endorse Hong Kong’s unique local cultural experiences and promote her favourite picks through social media and media. This collaboration will be further amplified through a trade collaboration with Klook and Cathay Pacific Airways (CX) in India. Through the collaboration, Klook will curate diverse destination experiences that will help re-invigorate interest in Hong Kong as a holiday destination. CX will be offering special fares on both its Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon brands for experiences booked on the Klook platform.The HKTB will also host its annual travel mission in India from August 27 – 30 in the key markets of Bengaluru, Mumbai and Delhi. As a part of the mission, a delegation of 37 Hong Kong trade members comprising of Hong Kong land operators, hoteliers, cruise companies and popular attractions will visit and network with Indian trade members. The trade partners will be introduced to new attractions and products and educated about the latest destination updates. A special B2B contest, the Hong Kong Great Outdoors digital contest called #GreatOutdoorsHongKong, will remain open till August 30 for Indian trade partners as a part of the Hong Kong Specialist Club program. Trade partners will have an opportunity to win a trip to Hong Kong to have their own unique Hong Kong experiences that will, in turn, help them promote the destination better.In 2018, HKTB will continue to promote the unique experiences of the destination with partners collaboration, such as joint promotion with GoPro India and a TV travelogue program with a travel/food channel to promote new dining experiences in Hong Kong.last_img read more

and trombone virtuoso Marsshall Gilkes The album has been played by a string quartet titled Turtle Island Quartet founded by Balakrishnan 30 years ago and which blends elements of Indian classical music jazz western classical and bluegrass on European string instruments in an attempt to redefine art music “I started the group as a way to play my own original music In the western classical tradition it is very common to have a string quartet but we were unique since all four of us were improvising jazz musicians My four food groups are Indian and western classical jazz and bluegrass It

include violinist Mateusz Smoczynski violist Benjamin von Gutzeit and cellist Mark Summer Born to an Indian father and an American mother Balakrishnan grew up listening to MS Subbulakshmi Pt Ravi

earned a masters degree in music composition at Antioch University West He then founded the Turtle Island Quartet in 1985 “We have always been known for bridging the gap between classical and jazz We were the first group to do it and find success at it artistically and commercially We were known to play jazz standards by Miles Davis and John Coltrane Underneath that we were also creating our

Supreme: The Legacy Of John Coltrane in the year 2008 Talking about not pursuing Indian classical music Balakrishnan says “I didn’t want to half do Indian classical music because I wasn’t trained in it So I decided to stick to my European training But I studied Indian music more from the compositional side For me if you hear my music from an Indian standpoint you may not spot much of Indian music But if you are a westerner you will spot more of it I try to find just the right amount of influence” says Balakrishnan Confetti Man’s fiery riffs have already turned into a hot favourite among a lot

according to a poverty line that is 50 per cent above the Tendulkar poverty line 25 per cent of the residents of Delhi are absolutely poor And the AAP policy of free water does zilch to help these most needy residents at this point in time Among these water-free households 62 lakh were provided water through tankers with an average per capita supply of only 382 litres per day Moreover 62 per cent of these households do not receive any water through tankers or piped connections But like Marie Antoinette these residents are supposed to drink tea from imaginary free water supplied to them by the AAP Free water for the rich and the middle class but not the poor But there are further problems with the AAP’s pro-poor (but in name only) water policy Any additional consumption (over 20 kl) would result in the household having to pay for the entire amount of water consumed that is anyone consuming 201 kl would pay for 201 kl as opposed to the additional 01 kl This is in essence an “infinite tax” policy the likes of which has never been practised in the world not even in the world of voodoo economics Instead of reducing corruption this policy will lead to greater corruption — households will have an incentive to tamper with meters to ensure that they show less consumption than the infinite tax level So from where did the AAP get its idea of provision of free water Extensive perusal of the literature does yield an example of a very distant but “similar” water policy More than a decade ago in 2000 President Thabo Mbeki of South Africa (SA) outlined the following water policy: All poor South Africans should receive 6 kl of water for free per month; for any additional consumption the household would be charged for the entire amount An infinite tax yes — but a non-binding one Note that the SA limit of 6 kl is less than one-third of the AAP level (20 kl) Also the SA policy was based on a household size of eight as opposed to five for the AAP Converting these numbers into per person per day (pppd) values SA’s policy mandated 25 litres pppd whereas the AAP’s policy is almost six times that value — 135 litres pppd Most importantly there was clear targeting of poor people in the SA policy The AAP policy on the other hand targets the rich and results in a transfer of money from the larger size poorer households to the smaller size richer households (see table) The AAP policy is a “reverse Robin Hood” strategy plain and simple (see ‘Kejriwal’s waterfront’ IE January 4 2014) So how is this policy any different from the ill-conceived and ill-fated “dole-economics” of the Congress-UPA Our suggestion is to scrap the free water policy for all and instead target poor localities and the localities with no access to piped water Ideally the poor should not have a problem paying for water as they are currently paying exorbitant amounts to procure water from tankers This targeting is one of the easiest to achieve as poorer localities are already known and thus can be effortlessly directed through the water connection Such targeting would be as straightforward as imposing a head tax that is impossible to avoid and impossible to arbitrate Water is unlikely to be carried from poor localities to the rich (Incidentally the head tax is so named because if someone did not pay then a simple medieval solution was “off with their head”) If the AAP government is able to provide piped water connections to all then that itself will be a big achievement While Kejriwal has stated that “all group housing societies that are not connected with [the] DJB supply network shall be connected with the DJB water pipes within a month of formation of the AAP government” it has to ensure the same for all of Delhi And this will not be cheap A statement by the AAP after the Delhi budget in 2014 said: “Even by the most conservative estimates at least Rs 3000 crore would be required to lay down the network for piped water in just some parts of the city” With the free water policy as well this amount will rise to approximately Rs 3500 crore That is almost 10 per cent of the current budget in Delhi While there is no doubt that the AAP has chosen issues that are relevant to the people through its Delhi Dialogue series it is not clear whether much research was carried out to design its policies If it had it would not be enunciating voodoo policies for problems that can be tackled in a straightforward manner There is simply no need political or economic to provide free water A basic question: what would the poor prefer — free or cheap water for two hours or water all day at a higher price or equivalently electricity 24/7 or two hours of electricity for half the price Along with its other promises (the more sensible ones) such as water accounting and quality monitoring building community toilets improving education and health infrastructure adequate street lighting the new AAP government will be in a severe financial crunch if doesn’t start prioritising on what policies are actually effective and will benefit Delhi in the long term (or at least in the next five years) Populism does not pay — it never does Time for the AAP to start concentrating on delivery and performance If it does both the AAP and Delhi will benefit enormously Bhalla is co-author with Ankur Choudhary of the recently

Related NewsMumbai – The government is working on a new agriculture insurance scheme to ensure farmers are not left at the mercy of rains Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said on Sunday even as he hoped "rain gods will be kinder this year" and help check the prices of pulses and other food products He also expressed confidence that the economy was moving on an accelerated growth trajectory while higher tax revenues improving macroeconomic fundamentals and ongoing reforms make 8-10 percent growth "eminently achievable" Monsoon was above normal in June with 25 percent excess rainfall despite a late arrival as well as a drought-like prediction and the rest of the monsoon may also be good he said Finance minister Arun Jaitley "It appears that the rain gods may be kinder this year to us The farm department has informed me that with better rainfalls in most parts of the country even for pulses which at the moment are a cause of concern productivity is likely to be much higher this year "I hope their estimates turn out to be true" he said Speaking at the Nabard Foundation Day function here Jaitley said the "silver lining" is that revenue collection situation is expected to be more comfortable than last year He said with the ongoing reform process proposed GST increased infrastructure investment and emphasis on smart cities 8-10 percent GDP growth is very much "in the sight" Allaying fears of any poor monsoon-driven troubles for the farmers and the consumers Jaitley said the government has taken a number of initiatives including the recently announced Rs 50000 crore programme for a national irrigation Promising more sustainable measures for the farm sector so that the farmers are not left to the mercy of rain gods Jaitley said "hopefully in the near future a viable and vibrant insurance scheme will be in place for farmers Jaitley said India needs higher growth as well as redistribution of resources "We need higher growth on one hand and we need to flag the concerns of the economy in those sections where the benefits of that growth process must reach first" The new agriculture insurance scheme will cover all the inputs put by a farmer into his farm as also the loans taken by him "Dr Ashok Gulati (Infosys Chair Professor for Agriculture at Icrier) just now made a very valuable presentation to the Finance Ministry where he came out with a doable and effectiveinsurance programme wherein the farmer is able to at least recover the basic inputs that he puts in in the events of uncertainties created by more than one reasons" Jaitley said The present crop insurance schemes cover only the loans which a farmer has taken from banks Noting that the agriculture sector presents its own set of challenges with successive low rate of growth over the years he admitted "We have been unable to ensure even a 4 percent growth consistently in the field of agriculture" "With productivity levels reasonably low and 85 percent farmers being small and marginal the agriculture sector is afflicted by higher input costs low level of irrigation high indebtedness absence of an effective insurance mechanism and adverse impacts of climate change" he said The Met department has predicted a 13 percent fall in monsoon this season While the June rainfall was 25 percent in excess of the average July so far has been over 50 percent deficient Many international agencies have forecast a strong El Nino effect on the rainfall season in the year and even a possible drought "And I can tell you that this is only the beginning. I am full confident that with the economy likely to move up in the next few years resources will be available. "We are fairly clear about the fact that a large part of investment will have to go into agriculture mitigating this rural distress and indebtedness of the farmer" he said Speaking at the same event RBI Deputy Governor H R Khan also said the government is working on the new insurance schemes for farmers and the central bank has also sent its comment on it "We have national insurance we have modified national insurance and now we are going for weather-based insurance cover and there is a talk about income insurance for farmers which has become a major issue" Khan said He said the cost to the government in subsiding for such insurance schemes will not be large if there is willingness to do it Khan however warned against frequent farm loan waivers and said that "prevention is better than the cure" PTI Written by Agencies | London | Published: June 29 2011 12:27 pm Related News Former ‘Baywatch’ star Pamela Anderson has been sued for $225 million by her former boyfriendLaurence Hallierfor allegedly failing to promote the sale of his apartments Hallierwho is a property developerhas claimed that the 43-year-old actress was sued for the hefty amount which represented losses from the unsold units at the Panorama Towers in Las Vegas Anderson has also been accused of cancelling her meetings connected with the venturereported Contact music Hallier’s lawsuit comes after Anderson filed a claim against her ex-boyfriend for not handing over the condominium he promised her for promoting the development In her suitAnderson was entitled to a $1 million if she doesn’t get the propertya claim denied by Hallier The couple had an on/off affair for some timebefore they finally called it quits last year The ‘Barb Wire’ starwho has two childrenBrandon15and Dylan13from her marriage to ‘Motley Crue’ rocker Tommy Leehas battled money problems in recent years and moved into a trailer park last year while her home in MalibuCaliforniawas being renovated The boys and me love the trailer parkit’s a special communitywe’re happy here? with the same knife when she tried to save her husband. will stand up and fight against him.
