Hong Kong, formerly a British colony, is now attached to China and is the richest region in the country and one of the biggest financial hubs in the world. Hong Kong is a neutral zone that has a special status named "special administrative region". It also has its own operating system and currency as well as left-wheel driving (Chinese drive on the right hand side of the road).
Hong Kong is made up of over 260 islands and islets. The largest of them is Lantau Island, home to charming villages and tropical forests. The New Territories illustrate a more urban side of the city with impressive buildings and skyscrapers, however there are still several nature reserves and protected areas like the Sai Kung peninsula. The Kolwoon peninsula is the most populous urban area in the world and boasts towering buildings and a multicultural population. Hong Kong Island is home to green parks, skycrapers, Victoria Peak and lots of beaches including Shek O and Repulse Bay. Discover the local markets at the foot of the giant skyscrapers or admire the legendary ships dating back to the British colonial era. Hong Kong is a harmonious blend of modernity and authenticity.
