China: Hong Kong 1 - The Gateway to China

Hong Kong is known as "the gateway to China"; it is made up of four areas: Hong Kong Island, Kowloon City, the New Territories, and almost 250 Outlying Islands. As Sian Richards shows us, it certainly is a modern city, but too is steeped in Chinese traditions. In the Mong Kok Market, Chef Geoff Havilland prepares pan-seared grouper with stuffed calamari for the evening meal, and Chef Ng shows how to make Dim Sum, which means "to touch the heart lightly." Sian visits Wong Tai Sin, a traditional Chinese Buddhist temple, with her guide Winnie, who explains that people come here to pray for good health and for happiness; also why it is known as the "fortune tellers'" temple. Next Professor Hu tells the story of why a certain Banyan tree is known as the "wishing tree." And because Hong Kong is known the world over for its many custom tailors and international design houses, Sian meets designer Joanne Tang, of Shanghai Tang, who helps her dress for the evening. 07/09DE JSCA 30 min.
