Good to see you so you're ready to go to Hong Kong, ready to do it. Let's goon the famous star ferry across the bay nick explains to us that there's aspecial app that helps monitoring protests and police activities so wecould stay out of troublethe moment we're on Hong Kong Island, you can see a lot of activity here oh reallyright now yeah so let's try and avoid that and hopefully find a nice easyroute up to the peak, it should be goodMartin try one of theseWhat is it?try one wow it's nicereligion and health pay a big part in Chinese culture tai chi is seenpracticed all over the place in parks on the promenade and green space and ofcourse ancient Chinese medicine is legendary for its effectiveness thestreets and Hills are dotted with temples some tiny not much more than animage or statue and incense sticks others are huge and demonstrate theirface in vivid color and traditions this might have something to do with why theresidents of Hong Kong live long the average age for women is 87 and men 82and despite the fact that the city is so polluted maybe their spirituality mixedin with the exercise does the trick for longevityVictoria Peak is the highest hill on Hong Kong Island that has breathtaking viewsover the spectacular skyline and it's busy streets below we navigate our wayfrom the peaks who parks staircases and remote alleys all the way to aneighborhood known as Soho in Central Hong Kongso what's going on here okay so we've just come into the thick of it we justgot into a central business district it seems along Des Voeux Road West there'ssome Raptor force a lot of possibly tear gas there's debris on the road soprotestors have been through here heavy police everybody police present so we'regonna try and avoid that section of town I think it's not very wise to go thereand get mixed up because it's been getting quite serious they are shootingrubber bullets tear gas they have a SWAT team in therethere is all kinds of rubbish and litter on the streets people are running veryquickly there I think we need to get out of here right nowLets go up the bridge here, no wait don't go there, police is already there.yeah let's not go therejust a couple of blocks away life seems completely normal people dine shop andexercise like any other day we finish our day watching the beautiful Symphonyof Lights show on the skyscrapers and indulgence of typical local foodwe are at Lamma Island we are just waiting for one of the locals to arrive to showus around you must be Andy yeah thanks for comingout. You live here full-time yeahI work from home - let go and ride - okayLamma island is the absolute opposite of Hong Kong quite laid-back a bit of ahippie vibe lots of expats there are no cars on theisland only bikes people either ride or walk to get around it was strange to seepeople disembarking the ferry at the end of the day in their city clothes andhopping on their bikes to head home to their island life you can see why thisisland is so appealing a 20 minute ferry ride and you can leave the chaos noiseand pollution of the mainland behind kickback in the peace and quiet. Lamma wasone of the original mountain bike hotspots in the Hong Kong area sincethen there are many more riding areas we got to sample some of these hand-builttrailsAlright Andy, thank you that was good Martin - another Trans HongKong in the book - in the bookwe finished Trans Hong Kong with a beer and watched the Sun melt into the SouthChina Sea the perfect ending to an unforgettable urban adventurelooks like Starbucks has beefed up its security, protestsoh you gotta new sponsor Carmen
