Too short, too few topics, too rudimentary cultural scenes, just enough to whet your appetite. Description from DVD back cover:

Shanghai ––
With its skyscrapers, trendy shops, tangled traffic, and teeming bazaars, dynamic Shanghai is a blend of the modern and the traditional. Visit Shanghai’s main shopping areas, Nanjing Donglu and Yuyan Bazaar, as well as its many markets that offer everything from Mao memorabilia, to flowers and birds. Shanghai Museum is a treasure trove of antiquities, while modern-day Buddhism is on display at the Jade Buddhist Temple. Another rich cultural tradition is the juggling, tumbling, and flying Shanghai Acrobatic Troupe. But, you have not really seen Shanghai until you gaze upon its dazzling electric nighttime sky from aboard a boat.

Hong Kong ––
Rudy Maxa ventures to one of the world’s most thrilling destinations, a magnificent balancing act that juggles East and West, past and present, commerce and mysticism. Board Hong Kong’s number one tourist attraction, the tram that climbs Victoria Peak, observe traditional religious practices at Wang Tai Sin Temple, take a class in the ancient design method of feng shui, and participate in two of Hong Kong’s most popular pastimes – shopping and horse racing. Rudy shares tips for easy day-trips to explore Hong Kong’s rural countryside and unspoiled coastline. On Lantau Island, gaze upon another of Hong Kong’s premier attractions – the giant bronze Buddha.
