San Francisco (March 6, 2012) - You’ve seen Victoria Peak in Hong Kong, the Chapel of St. Francis Xavier in Macau and the Dianxia Mountain in Guangdong, China. Or have you? Although you may never forget your first visit to Asia, you can certainly rediscover it all over again with Cathay Pacific’s new “Quest for Harmony” tour. Mirrored after Richard Bangs’, the pioneer of adventure travel, itinerary on his Adventures with Purpose travel show, the tour is designed for travellers seeking to experience Asia, namely Hong Kong, Macau and Guangdong in a new way.
“In order to appreciate the new, you have to understand the old. Bangs embarked on a journey to Asia and sought how modern influences and the ancients can coexist in a harmonious union, and we are pleased to offer travellers an opportunity to follow in his footsteps and unravel their own interpretation,’ said Dennis Owen, vp of marketing, Americas. “This isn’t another sightseeing tour. It’s about rediscovering the Hong Kong, Macau and Guangdong you know through a new perspective with a purpose.”
The 11-day journey will bring you to explore the virtuous balance between Hong Kong’s modern cityscape and traditional relics; Macau’s flourishing economy and Portuguese influence; and Guangdong’s vast natural landscape and booming industrial growth.
