NEW GALLERIES MAKE HISTORY IN HONG KONG


From the ancient days of the Qing dynasty through modern British colonial rule, Hong Kong has played a pivotal role in the interchange between East and West. Thanks to two new museums in Hong Kong, visitors can explore a rich history that stretches back 6,000 years. THE HONG KONG HERITAGE MUSEUM traces the evolution of the inland area bordering mainland China, from prehistoric life to the challenges facing Hong Kong today. THE MUSEUM OF COASTAL DEFENCE examines the development of the seaport as a strategic maritime outpost. For more information, call (800) 282-4582 or visit www.hkta.org
