Speed Hong Kong Style: Dragon Boat Racing
Drums pound. Oars rip through the water. A well-trained crew works
at fever pitch. The goal: bring a dragon boat across the finish line
first. Dragon Boat Racing has its roots in Chinese mythology, but it's
a fast-paced, exciting international sport. Each race lasts a few
minutes, so split seconds matter and teamwork is everything. Your

and oars vanish in a blur of speed. The power of teamwork at its best.

the customs of a new culture - a tremendous teamwork builder for your
group. After a lucky couple is selected by a matchmaker, an auspicious
date is chosen using the Chinese almanac at Hong Kong's most popular
temple. Then begins a welter of preparations: selecting costumes,
food, jewellery, and arranging a banquet. On the big day participants
hold a traditional Chinese wedding ceremony which resonates with
ancestor worship, still a mainstay of local culture. Afterwards, comes
a lively and joyous feast. The players will have proved themselves as
a team and will have gained fascinating insights into an important

people tick? Your achievers will find out, becoming photojournalists
in the process. The tools: a camera, a roll of film and a map. Your
winners will divide into teams and explore a district on foot or on
public transport, taking pictures that tell the real story of Hong

years. A fascinating spectacle of costume, colour, music and movement,

brings good luck to all spectators. It also takes agility,
co-ordination and stamina - great team builders. Incentive winners,
divided into two teams, assume the various roles: the two halves of
the lion, the "Happy Buddha" who leads the dance, and the orchestra.
There follows a short, intensive period of instruction, after which
team members design and paint the traditional banners for their lions.

effort to find the treasure, your achievers might visit historical
buildings or monuments, or explore the city's bird, fish and flower
markets, where they'll learn the significance of plants and animals in

Balance. Focus. Strength. Qualities needed by both ancient warriors
and modern business people. The martial art of kung fu is famous
worldwide, thanks to Hong Kong son Bruce Lee, but few Westerners are
aware of the more peaceful art of tai chi swordplay. Used in ancient
times to improve mental reactions and health, tai chi swordplay
involves slow movements performed while holding a metre-long wooden
sword. The goal is to achieve a supreme level of balance, and to

adding pressure to certain points on the body can enhance the
circulation of qi and blood. In Hong Kong, acupoint massage is often
used as a remedy for many kinds of pain. Your winners have a chance to

of life involves the balancing of opposing forces, according to the

medicine, which has been used with success for millennia. A

Dine on a snake, and live to tell the tale! For Chinese, eating
and health can never be separated. They eat to keep healthy and live
long. In winter, people add exotic ingredients (snakes, bird's nests,
etc) to dishes to keep warm and preserve energy. Every food item, from
bamboo shoots to bananas to ginger, has its own properties of
"heating" or "cooling" which help balance the body's natural forces.
Your achievers will have a chance to visit a specialty tonic
restaurant where a variety of health dishes are served. The
adventurous ones can sample snake soup, sea cucumber or blackleg
Feel Fabulous the Chinese Way! - Tea: The Preferred Drink of One
The art of tea drinking is quintessentially Chinese. Tea is drunk
for health, and is poured as an offering to friends. It accompanies an
everyday dim sum breakfast and is given to the bride before marriage.
The best way for your winners to learn about the many facets of this
Chinese practice is to visit specialty tea shops, where they can learn
the technique of tea brewing and sample choice potions.

Few shows generate the kind of excitement that your achievers will
experience at a Chinese acrobatic and kung fu show. Some of the
world's finest practitioners of the ancient Chinese martial arts will
demonstrate feats that defy description: walking barefoot on knives,
deft juggling, contortions, balancing and more. It's a truly
breathtaking look at one of the most mysterious and thrilling aspects
of Chinese culture.
Let Us Entertain You! - Strings and Things
East is East and West is West, and everyone agrees that there's
nothing like a good band to heat up the proceedings. A variety of
first-class Western-style ensembles can serenade your incentive
winners -- rock bands, orchestras, and jazz bands waiting to signal
the down beat and fill the room with beautiful sounds.

High above Hong Kong Island on the 'back of the Dragon', Victoria Peak
is the City of Life's premier visitor attraction, providing
magnificent harbour and city views. Arriving late afternoon enables
you to experience the dazzling panorama of Hong Kong Island, the
harbour, Kowloon and the hills beyond. Later, you can thrill to the
neon-dotted skyline by night. What's more, The Peak offers visitors a
multitude of fantastic entertainment, dining and shopping options.
The best way to get to the top is via the
Peak Tram, a funicular railway that carves a
steep 396-metre swathe up the lush mountainside. The tram has been in
operation since 1888, and once competed with sedan chairs as the most
popular way up. Try to get seats at the front of the tram on the
right-hand side for the journey skyward. The only way to describe the
views from this vantage point is "simply breathtaking".
Peak Tower & Peak Galleria
Thrilling indoor entertainment is housed in the
Peak Tower and Peak Galleria. Attractions
include a hi-tech virtual-reality ride, the Peak Explorer, as well as
a showcase of weird and wonderful artefacts at the Ripley's Believe It
Or Not! Odditorium. Then, rub shoulders with the famous at
world-renowned Madame Tussaud's wax portraits museum. With around 100
astoundingly life-like wax figures means getting up close and personal
with Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger has never been easier. And
let's not forget dining. There are several mouth-watering options on
the Peak, including Cafe Deco Bar & Grill and Movenpick Marche
Restaurant. All impress hungry visitors with their international menus
and outstanding views.
The Peak is the perfect location to embark on several trails. For a
spectacular circular walk that takes about one hour, turn right out of
Peak Tower and head for Lugard Road. To
climb to even greater heights, stroll up Mount Austin Road to Victoria
Peak Garden, then venture down to Aberdeen or return to Central via
Old Peak Road.

Primarily a well-to-do residential area,
sun-drenched Repulse Bay has a relaxed resort-like atmosphere. The
wide, wave-lapped beach is popular with locals and visitors alike and
great for sandy strolls - early morning with the waking of another
day, when the sun is up and the sunbathers are out in force, or at
sunset when all is at peace. As well as sun, sea and sand, there are
plenty of diversions nearby. The ornate Life Guard Club is built in a
traditional Chinese style, its ceiling decorated with magnificent
swirling dragons. The picturesque gardens that lead down to the beach
are dominated by towering twin statues of Kwun Yum and Tin Hau, both
protectors of fishermen. The colonial-style, The Repulse Bay, houses
designer shops and award-winning restaurants and resembles the luxury
hotel that originally occupied the site. This is the ideal place for a
romantic dinner under the stars. For something more down-to-earth,
several open-air restaurants nearby specialise in the joys of
wholesome barbecued food, including the freshest prawns, squid, fish
and other seafood. All are cheery hives of activity every night of

The Hong Kong
Convention Ambassador (HKCA) programme was established in 1994. About
400 Hong Kong based prominent professional and business leaders have
been invited as HKCA so far.
When overseas, the HKCA
are committed to promoting Hong Kong as an ideal location for
conventions and exhibitions to their business counterparts.
They are actively
seeking opportunities to bid for and organise international
conventions and exhibitions which could be held in Hong Kong.
They are always talking
positively about Hong Kong and encouraging their overseas associates
to visit Hong Kong.
Once a person becomes a
HKCA, he is presented with a specially framed certificate and a lapel
pin. The HKCA Briefcase is a specially designed, pocket-size leaflet
which contains important tips for them when they promote Hong Kong.
The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) is most grateful for the
contribution of the HKCAs and conducts special activities, briefings
and mailings to ensure the Ambassadors receive first-hand information
about the latest developments and opportunities in Hong Kong.
