In 1958, Merle Haggard saw Johnny Cash play in San Quentin, and went on to sing honest country songs for country outlaws. In 1982, future Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello saw Joe Strummer play with The Clash in Chicago and went on to play angry righteous rock for angry punks.

Buffalo
Buffalo in the River Li The buffalo works the rice paddies, the horse eats the rice; the farmer works the fields, the son enjoys himself. (Chinese proverb)

A favourite for coffee and cake, with a good choice of local produce to make a visit a real pleasure.

Staff were very helpful with wheelchairs and we headed straight for the Egyptian mummies, which are always astounding.

Uniqlo was such fun that I visited almost every day, finding T shirts that are my favourite souvenirs from New York.

The ION is a fabulous combination of the best designer shops and a very wide selection of local street food (hawker stalls) at very reasonable prices in air-conditioned comfort.

Having booked well in advance, it was disappointing to be offered a double instead of the twin bedded room requested, although the Fitzpatrick managed to sort this out (with a little insistence) and we ended up with a lovely room. Bathrooms are in need of some serious redesign, but the overall ambience was very good.

The rooms are generally larger than more recently built hotels, and the one I stayed in was modern and very comfortable. Afternoon tea in the restaurant was a wonderful treat, and there are good local restaurants within easy walking distance, including a branch of Tim Ho Wan serving fast-food dim sum dishes. Although friends were surprised at my choice of North Point, it is easy to get around Hong Kong from the hotel by tram, underground (MTR) and taxi.

The location is very good for shopping in Orchard Road, the hotel is modern and comfortable with a good restaurant. Very usefully, it is in the same block as the Cold Storage supermarket, where I picked up good coffee bags for the hotel room. Staff were very helpful and the orchids in the lobby were spectacular.
