An expatriate Post colleague who spoke some Cantonese called the Tourism Board the other day to find out about harbour tours. An intriguing conversation ensured with a PR officer who spoke excellent English. Tourism Board: 'You can call the tour operators directly. One is Water Tours. The other one, I don't know what it is in English.' Post: 'That's ok, what's it called in Chinese?' Tourism Board: 'It's Tin Shing Siu Lun Yau Lun Gung Si.' And what's that in English? Just a little-known company called the Star Ferry.
