Hong Kong and Singapore Air Bubble
Hong Kong and Singapore will establish an Air Travel Bubble starting November 22, 2020 with passenger quota set at 200 per day in each direction. Flights are operated exclusively by Cathay Pacific and Singapore Airline one flight per day, and from December 7 onwards, the number of flights into each city will be increased to two daily.
To access the travel bubble, a passenger from Hong Kong to Singapore must pass a COVID-19 test no more than 72 hours before departure and no additional test is needed upon arrival at Singapore’s airport. A passenger from Singapore, however, will need an extra test upon arrival in Hong Kong, on top of a pre-departure test in the city state.
The scheme is very well received and flight seats for the first week were full booked shortly after opening for sale.
Xian New Speical Arrangments
Rubbing Making Experience at Beilin Museum
Beilin Museum was originally a Confucian Temple in 14th century, and today it houses an outstanding library of stone stele which span a period of over 1,000 years. Followed by a lesson conducted by the master, guests will untilize the ancient stone steles to make their own rubbings. Stone steles are inscribed with Chinese calligraphy writing, and the outcome will be put into envelopes and presented as a gift.
Countryside Experience at Huxian
Huxian County, located 40 kilometers southwest from the downtown Xi'an, is one of the rare destinations still preserving the peasant cultures. Followed by a traditional countryside welcome performance (characterized by gongs and drums and folk dance), the master will show guests around his village, demonstrate his artistic talent and share his life story during the Cultural Revolution.
Shaanxi Opera Experience
Guests may have already had an experience with the Peking Opera, but Shaanxi Opera will surely provide them another angle to view China's performance art. Characterized by "the loving suggestiveness of the genre", this stream of opera was once banned from "being performed in the Capital" during the Qing Dynasty. However, it was widely spread in other regions; and later inspired Tan Dun's modern opera "First Emperor". Guests will have the privilege to visit the private studio of the Shaanxi Opera Master. Followed by a lecture, guests will wear the colourful makeup and dress as an opera singer. Practice a few movements with the master and become a Opera Star for a moment!
