SilkRoad - - EDITOR’S LETTER 編者的話 - Mark Tjhung, Editor

taking off and landing at Chek Lap Kok. It’s one of my favourite parts of travelling, actually: looking out the window over the Hong Kong skyline, the mountains, the islands. Recently, though, another part of the landscape has caught my attention: the progress of the new Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao bridge, snaking off across the water.

After years of construction, the new 55-kilometre megabridge is almost here. And along with Cathay Pacific’s new codeshare with Cotai Water Jet ferries, it promises to make getting to Macao easier than ever.

Hong Kong’s sister Special Administrative Region is a fascinating place that’s rapidly transforming yet rich in heritage. There are the gleaming landmarks of the Cotai strip but also its Portuguese colonial legacy. There’s a burgeoning clutch of Michelin-starred restaurants, but also classic Macanese egg tarts. In short, there’s the new, and there’s the old – and in this issue’s cover story (p36), we’ll show you how to experience the best of both Macaos.

There’s plenty more in this issue, too: parks, recreation and history in Xiamen (p44); homegrown food trends in Okinawa (p56); Taiwan on two wheels (p62); and all the reasons you’ll want to visit Copenhagen (p50), once Cathay Pacific launches its newest route on 2 May.
