Live: 'Pearl of the Orient' – Hong Kong from a high-end cruise
Updated 13:24, 25-Jun-2022

Hong Kong has long been crowned "Pearl of the Orient" as one of Asia's most successful and vibrant economies. Victoria Harbour is undeniably the heart that has connected the city with the world for over a century. There are a number of ferries and boat rides that cruise the beautiful stretch of water, but now a high-end cruise ship, the "Oriental Pearl" promises to take that experience to the next level. It was built by state-owned shipping and logistics giant Chu Kong Shipping Enterprises (Holding) Co. Ltd (CKS) in neighboring Guangzhou city a year ago. It offers a posh local tour experience at an affordable price, and creates new jobs for the city. During the fifth round of COVID-19 infections earlier this year, CKS was among the first to open emergency shipping routes to Hong Kong, transporting essential food and hospital supplies. Join CGTN's Huang Fei on a livestream to discover what the 25th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to the motherland means for the long-standing state-owned firm, and what makes the "Oriental Pearl" shine.
