IMAGINE YOU have friends coming to Hong Kong and you have promised to show them around. Where will you take them? What will you do? Planning an itinerary takes time and effort. You must think of the people involved and their interests. Then you must design a route that takes in the sites without backtracking. If this sounds like fun, then the 'Enjoy Hong Kong: Itinerary Design Competition' is for you. The competition is open to everyone and prizes include air tickets, unlimited MTR travel and jewellery. I have friends who enjoy Hong Kong movies, so I designed an itinerary that takes in the locations of some of their favourite films. Some of the movies suggested are showing at the Hong Kong International Film Festival, which kicks off on March 27. Competition details and entry forms at www.enjoyhk.gov.hk Check out: Hong Kong International Film Festival www.hkiff.org.hk . MONGKOK Wander through the back streets of Mongkok like Little Cheung as he delivered takeaways from his Dad's restaurant. Little Cheung (1999) is shot in Fruit Chan's signature style - hand-held camera work and no professional actors - and the result is a raw, but touching, look at the real Hong Kong. TSIM SHA TSUI - STAR FERRY Take a ride on the Star Ferry. It could be the same boat that Robert Lomax (William Holden) was on when he first saw Suzie (Nancy Kwan), the prostitute he fell in love with in The World of Suzie Wong (1960). KAI TAK Kai Tak is nothing like it used to be. No more planes skimming the tops of buildings, no more crowded arrival halls. But the pre-Chek Lap Kok days have been immortalised in Air Hostess (1959) - which is showing on May 1 and 4 as part of the film festival. DIAMOND H?LL Wander around the wasteland near Diamond Hill and think what life must have been like for the people who lived in this former squatter area. Director Fruit Chan got in before the bulldozers and his latest film, Hollywood Hong Kong (2001) kicks off this year's Film Festival. CENTRAL Hang out at the main branch of HSBC - the building was the CIA headquarters for agents Nathan Muir (Robert Redford) and Tom Bishop (Brad Pitt) in Spy Game (2001). LAN KWAI FONG Go to Midnight Express in Lan Kwai Fong and grab a late-night snack, like the cop (Tony Leung Chiu-wai) did in Chungking Express (1994). You too might meet your Faye Wong. HONG KONG UNIVERSITY If it's a romantic setting you are after, try the Renaissance-style courtyard at the University of Hong Kong. This is where Raphael (Leon Lai Ming) and Vivian (Shu Qi) shared their first kiss in City of Glass (1998). MID-LEVELS ESCALATOR Take a leisurely ride up the escalator and check out the buzz of the Mid-Levels area. This is where English journalist John (Jeremy Irons) lived in Chinese Box (1997). The movie, starring Gong Li, was a flop but the footage of the SoHo back streets is good. HONG KONG CONVENTION AND EXHIBITION CENTRE Relive the drama of Gen-X Cops (1999) at the HKCEC. The three super-cops - Nicholas Tse Ting-fung, Sam Lee Chan-sam and Stephen Fung Tak-lun - manage to thwart a Japanese terrorist attack. ABERDEEN Take a sampan through Aberdeen harbour and you will be following in the footsteps of Bruce Lee. In Enter the Dragon (1973) - his most popular film in the West - he was a martial arts expert out to infiltrate a drug syndicate. Director Ann Hui On-wah also shot her award-winning film about the boat people, Ordinary Heroes (1999) in Aberdeen. REPULSE BAY Have a midnight dip at Repulse Bay, just as US war correspondent Mark Elliott (William Holden) and his sweetheart, Eurasian doctor (Jennifer Jones) did in Love Is A Many-Splendored Thing (1955).
