提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
Shopping in Hong Kong extends far beyond buying life’s necessities. It’s a recreational and social activity. So unless you are a committed non-shopper, best to leave a little packing room in your suitcase. So apart from shopping, what’s Hong Kong’s most popular pastime. Well, I will put my money on horse racing. Here, betting on the ponies isn’s just a sport, it is a passion. Millions of people  follow these events and the average betting turnover per race is the highest  in the world. The first race was held here at the Happy Valley Track more than 150 years ago and the Track even remained open during the Japanese occupation in the 1940s. Until recently, house racing was  the only legal gambling form in Hong kong. And with annual turnover equivalent of 1 billion dollars, the sport of kings definitely reigns.
The Hong Kong’s tourists board,” culture kaleidoscope programme” makes it really easy to get crash course in Chinese culture. Everyday you can take different workshops and important traditions that help you fully appreciate your visit here. And best of all, the classes are free. For example, one day you can learn to play Tai Chi, another day  you can take a class in the ancient design method of Feng Shui. Literally translated as Wing Water, Feng Shui is describes how homes and spaces can be defined to achieve harmony with the spirits of nature.
