Great Strides: Hong Kong

After running all over Asia for Great Strides, Troy de Haas is about to get on his bike.

Visitors to Hong Kong are usually familiar with the territory's food, shopping, high-density living and pollution. But few tourists - and even residents - think of Hong Kong as a running paradise. The fact is, wherever you are in this great city, you are just around the corner from a park or traffic-free running trail.

 The now notorious photographs of a naked Prince Harry may have been taken in Las Vegas, but the British royal's favourite stomping ground is reportedly London nightspot Boujis. And if you've ever wondered what it's like to party like a prince, you won't have to travel to the British capital to find out - a branch of the club is opening in Hong Kong early next month.

Harbourfront road could have been pedestrian-friendly boulevard

Donald Tsang Yam-kuen's administration was inimical to good town planning, with his propensity for large-scale projects and almost complete insensitivity for neighbourhood and nostalgic sentiment.
