    I'd heard that the big hotels had stopped their construction in Macau for lack of people to hire. Supposedly the Chinese government stopped giving work visa's to mainlanders and so the employee pool dried up, or so I heard.

    Shenzhen mayor pushes twin city concept for HK

    Monday, March 10, 2008

    Shenzhen and Hong Kong have the potential to become the largest, most powerful metropolitan innovative zone in China, according to Shenzhen mayor Xu Zongheng.

    "There are many possibilities for cooperation between the two cities, especially in finance and boundary- crossing facilities," Xu said.
    The two cities could form an influential zone at regional and international levels, making the duo more competitive, along the lines of San Francisco and Boston in the United States.


    Cooperation between the two cities, he added, would be implemented in keeping with the "one country two systems" principle.


    Guangdong governor Huang Huahua, drawing a parallel between New York and New Jersey, described Shenzhen and Hong Kong as twin cities.

    The hotels look amazing if they come true.

    But I am also hesitant about the number of visitors, available labour and poor local transport. Venetian Macao is already doing promotions almost monthly to lure visitors back. Venetian will have to do more than bringing Cirque do Soleil to town to fill all those hotel rooms on the Cotai Strip.

    Don't forget there already are plenty of competitions from existing hotels like Lisboa, Wynn, MGM Grand, Crown and Galaxy.

    It's what irritates me the most about HKDL's posts.. just google info from around HK and nothing concrete that we can comment on in regards to what we are here for: HKDL.

    Well I'm visiting HKDL in May but will also be visiting Macau, so speak for yourself on this as I quite enjoy Hongkongdisneyland's informative post's. I'm just happy to see people contributing post to an area that is usually quiet due to the fact no one ever visits that park. I really don't know why some have to act like drama queens over this. End of the day its the job of a MiceChat Moderator to deem what post are suitable or not, if anyone is bothered by this, its simple don't read the post.

    Re: Pearl River Delta and Hong Kong Disneyland

    Well..since I have not been in HKDL since last month, and if we knew where the heck Loomis has been, this area would be filled with info on HKDL and not about other things that should be posted on Micechat's Non Disney park/travel sections.. I have no problem with HKDL's posts but when they do not pertain to the park, they should be posted in the appropriate sections. I personally do not need to read about bridges being built or Ocean Park, which is a ghetto park to me.
    If you like that, since you spend a grand part of your day seeking info online, then more power to you.
    And yes, I AM a drama queen, and a good one at that.

    Was hoping nobody would notice.... Rumours of my death are greatly exaggerated! I've been alternatively battling with a busted modem (now fixed) and a crazy work schedule, but the Easter long weekend + flex day means 5 days where I can get back to website stuff!

    Also, not much new stuff happening at the moment...I do have a stack of photos to post, which will be my weekend project (that and eating chocolate eggs).
