HONG KONG -- A study commissioned by the Hong Kong Tourist
Association recommended construction of a 62-acre theme park
focusing on international movies and television shows.
According to the Tsing Yi-Ma Wan Film City and Associated
Tourism Development Study, the park would be located in Hong Kong's
Ma Wan area and include a 1,000-room, film-industry-themed hotel
complex with convention facilities on Tsing Yi island. The tourist
authority said the project, called Film City, would aid the
extension of the Tsing Yi-Ma Wan tourism corridor to the northeast
part of Lantau Island. If approved, the project could be completed
early in the next century.
