News in brief:
Win a stay at the Shangri-La Hotel in The Shard, London
The Hong Kong Tourism Board in the UK is running a competition with the Shangri-La Hotel in The Shard.
Whilst Hong Kong travel isn’t easy at the moment, you can get a taste of Asia if you win. The winner receives an overnight stay for two with breakfast plus a 3-course dinner with wine pairings at TING. Three runners up will win meal or drinks packages for the hotel.

We hit 20 million page views
As you can see here:
…. we hit 20 million page views for 2021 during yesterday afternoon. This is the first time that we have got over the 20 million mark in a calendar year.
We should really add another 8 million to that number to reflect the articles opened by our 15,000 email readers. Subscribers to our daily emails receive every article in full, and so rarely visit the site.
We’ve never chased page views over putting out quality content – we could easily get our numbers up by running the ‘dog bites woman whilst using an aircraft loo’ clickbait nonsense you find elsewhere – but I think 20 million is worth noting. Thank you for your continued support.
