Jul 20th 2010 4:43AM News here in HK has been buzzing over this. There are thousands of Mainlanders on tour here everyday and it's unfortunately not surprising that some have been taken advantage of by the greedy tour operators and harassed by the guides.
Here's a snippet from today's "The Standard": "The [Travel Industry Council] said yesterday that it has issued ultimatums to Golden Win International Travel Services and the tour guide, nicknamed Ah Zhen, demanding they submit their explanations and defense within 14 days, failing which hearings will be held and judgments made in their absence. However, council executive director Tung Yao-chung said police will not be asked to track down the missing guide since no crime was involved."
And as to the man that died, (and this makes it WORSE) it was revealed a few weeks after it happened that the tour guide was unlicensed.
Dec 1st 2009 11:51PM You are right. I've lived in Mainland China and Hong Kong now for 3 years and going to Pizza Hut is a classy "Western" restaurant. However, the pizza selections are a little different. Would you choose toppings like sweet corn and tuna or have thousand island dressing instead of tomato sauce? Check out their website for some disgusting (imho) combos. There are also pictures of their interiors: http://www.pizzahut.com.hk/en/home.html
