The mythical place mentioned in the 1933 novel “Lost Horizon” is not mythical after-all. It exists, and I have been there. In Kowloon, Hong Kong, amidst a plethora of Hong Kong hotels, stands the Shangri-La.
Recently while abroad marketing some software for an up and coming technology guru, I was booked at this hotel. The decor was superb. The cuisine was delicious. But the massage and reflexology specialists that worked me over, made the trip unforgettable. I will spend hours remembering the outer body experience that woman gave me on her table.
I have traveled the world over and will be quick to volunteer for another Hong Kong trip should the opportunity avail itself. The accomodations and people of Hong Kong were remarkable. This was an experience of a lifetime for me.
