HAPPENINGS HONG KONG

HAPPENINGS HONG KONG SPOTLIGHT Ngong Ping 360 Closed for Maintenance The Ngong Ping 360 cable car is scheduled to suspend its service from early January 2017 for rope replacement. The maintenance project should complete in early June 2017. The Ngong Ping Rescue Trail also will not be open to visitors during the replacement period to ensure public safety. However, Ngong Ping village with their shops and entertainment venues remain open. Visitors can buy the bus tour package at the Tung Chung Cable Car Terminal or take other modes of transport to Ngong Ping village and beyond to Tian Tan Buddha statue, and Po Lin monastery. Meanwhile, the Hong Kong MRT Corporation recently extended the Kwun Tong Line to the new Ho Man Tin and Whampoa stations. During weekday non-peak periods, the average train service frequency is three minutes for all Kwun Tong Line stations. Let’s join the locals in exploring Hong Kong further!

These include smoked salmon and cream cheese on homemade pumpernickel bread, ham and picallili baguette, pork and fennel sausage rolls or choux buns filled with coronation chicken. Sweet treats include blueberry cheesecake, strawberry mousse and the hotel’s much-loved opera cake. Top it all off with plain or raisin scones served with Devonshire clotted cream and the hotel’s own rose petal jam.
