Background of this impressive destination
Hong Kong is an autonomous territory with a surface area of only 1,104 km². The main island is surrounded by a group of 200 smaller territorial islands. Hong Kong’s unique history has sealed its destiny as a geographical and cultural gateway between East and West. Throughout its history, Hong Kong has been a maritime base for pirates, a resource for Chinese traders, a home for traditional fishing villages, and a colonial staging post. Hong Kong’s culture is a melting pot of customs and traditions, influenced by thousands of years of immigration.
Under British Crown rule, the territory became central to international trade. Since 1st July, 1997, Hong Kong has the status of Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China. Today, the Chinese and European heritages perfectly blend into a harmonious identity. Experience the spirit of Hong Kong and see why it is unlike any other place in the world. Visitors are often in awe when faced with the city’s buoyant modernity and incredible expansion. What used to be a fishermen’s village has become an international crossroads for trade and tourism where Taoist temples and period buildings contrast with ultra-modern facades and skyscrapers.
