Hong Kong - A City of Festivals

Hong Kong may be Asia's World City, yet its people still cherish their tradition and the richness it brings their lives. In this new Hong Kong episode, Joseph returns for the annual Dragon Boat Festival. He discovers the festival is more than a race as it honors the integrity and devotion of poet, Qu Yuan, who sacrificed himself rather than live in a corrupt world. As part of the cultural celebration he makes traditional rice dumpling, learns the myths behind the dragon boat legend and design and speaks with participants in the local races on Lamma Island. On Cheung Chau, one of Hong Kong's 263 islands, he greets the early morning fishing boats, witnesses the islander's art of fish ball making, climbs through a UNESCO reserve and relaxes on the beach. During his Hong Kong stay, the 15th anniversary of the British handover of Hong Kong to China is also celebrated in a spectacular, unforgettable explosion of pyrotechnics.
