In 1993 my husband was working in Hong Kong for a few months, so I flew out with the children for a short holiday. This time we found a happier, friendlier place with dramatic changes in architecture and I would love to have stayed longer.

In 2005 Peter and I decided to find out how Hong Kong had changed since it had been handed over to the Chinese government. It was quite remarkable how, on the surface, nothing seemed to have changed. It was still a wonderful place to visit, with ultra modern buildings contrasting ancient, intriguing remains from the past.

In 2012 we returned for another holiday in Hong Kong. This time we were concerned by how much of the harbour has become reclaimed land but we still enjoyed discovering new things to see.

Next week I will show you Po Lin Monastery and the Big Buddha on Lantau island.
