About Hong Kong

Hong Kong EmblemSatellite view is showing Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR), located south of the Chinese Guangdong (formerly Canton) province. The area comprises Hong Kong Island, the Kowloon peninsula, and the New Territories,as well as some additional areas of the mainland.

Hong Kong was a former trading port, it became a crown colony of the United Kingdom in 1842, in 1997 its sovereignty was transfered to the People's Republic of China. The "One country, two systems" idea grants Hong Kong a high degree of autonomy in all areas with the exception of foreign affairs and defence. The SAR maintains its own currency, its legal and political system and other aspects that concern its way of life for at least 50 years until 2047.

Rallies are infused with theatrics and eruptions of song, dance and poetry, reflecting the city’s vibrant indie music and literary scenes. Enjoy views of skyscrapers marching up hills from the Star Ferry, before challenging your senses at a wet market or divining your future at a temple. Go shopping, gallery hopping and check out the bars of Soho. Explore walled villages or go hiking on Asia’s most breathtaking trails. Whatever you do, sprinkle your day generously and boldly with some of the city’s 11,000 restaurants."
