Abstract:

This Globe Trekker video follows Megan McCormick through two countries closely linked to China's politics and traditions yet inching toward western modernity. In Hong Kong, Megan learns how feng shui influences many modern skyscrapers, sees a wishing tree, goes on a shopping spree in a piracy-friendly district, sees a fortune-teller, bets on horses, hits the city's trendiest club, takes a tai chi lesson, meets a legendary movie stunt man, visits the historic Sam's Tailor, which has clothed Bill Clinton and Luciano Pavarotti, goes paragliding, and marvels at the world's biggest, sitting Buddha. In Taiwan, she starts in Taipei, visiting a night market that specializes in medicinal snake products, Martyrs' Temple, and the still under-construction mirrored 101 Tower. Out of the city, Megan hikes to a hot springs, attends morning prayers at a modern temple, climbs Jade Mountain, and ends up on the remote Orchid Island with the Yami people.
