Web picks - Virtual travel (South China Morning Post)
18 Nov, 2001
Hong Kong has more travel agents than you can shake a boarding card at, but not of the variety that has shops stocked with glossy brochures about destinations and hotels. The best you're likely to get is a brochure for the sort of tour that will have you in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower at 9am and under the Brandenburg Gate by noon. If you're looking for inspiration on picking a destination, try the web. An excellent site is Fridae.com (www.fridae.com), a gay and lesbian portal with a focus on recommending places and hotels that don't discriminate against homosexuals. There is plenty of travel information for the heterosexual, too, even if the featured article when I visited was 'All About Semen', which was probably as off-putting to the lesbians as it was to me.
