The Johnnie To Kei Fung and Wai Ka Fai produced romance ROMANCING IN THIN AIR (GO HOI BUT JI LUEN II) shot on location in Shangri-La.  Sammi Cheng Sau Man aside from work took pictures of animals.  Louis Koo Tin Lok often accompanied a bicycle and said that he spent more time riding the bicycle in Shangri-La than ever before.  However, due to the lacking hygienic condition, going to the bathroom was a big problem for the cast.

Because Shangri-La was in high altitude, the air was thin.  Behind the cameras everyone had to slow down their movement, otherwise they would have breathing difficulty or require oxygen tank assistance.  However the more regular bathroom there was very far from the location.  Going there would require a lot of energy.  The closer ones to the location was very filthy and smelly.  Goo Jai said that at first he chose to go to the normal bathroom, but after a few rounds he had difficulty breathing.  Finally he had to submit too.

Sammi treated the local animals like her friends.  Originally the team worried that the animals would scare her, but in one scene she kept taking photos on animals on her first trip to Shangri-La she lived out the act.  With the team's camera she kept shooting animals.  She pointed out that the chance to be so close to nature was very rare for city people so she had to cherish it properly.
