I made my first trip to Asia this week. I thought it was very successful - although I don't recommend going to Hong Kong for a four day business trip that seems to be the way business travel is these days. Having never been to the country and not knowing a word of the language, I was a little anxious as to how I was going to get around. But, true to experiences in the past, the hotel concierge was a tremendous help. I always think of the concierge as my on-site assistant, but with the language barrier I was a little tentative. I am happy to report that the concierge at this hotel was great - in addition to taking care of the usual tasks, such as directing me on where to go for dinners and making reservations, even more valuable to me, as it turned out, was this concierge's practice of writing the addresses of the places I needed to go in the local Chinese language on a paper I could take with me. I just handed the piece of paper to the taxi driver, pointed to the address, and was delivered to my destination promptly without any hitches. My motto of 'make the concierge your best friend' held true again.Watch a safety video!
