About Hong Kong

Hong Kong is situated on China's south coast, being surrounded by the South China Sea on the east, south, and west, and borders the Shenzhen city  to the north over the Shen Zhen River. Hong Kong is often described as a place where "East meets West", reflecting the culture's mix of the Chinese roots with the culture brought to it during its time as a British colony. The geographical location has allowed Hong Kong to establish a transportation and logistics infrastructure that includes the world's second busiest container port and the world's busiest airport for international cargo.

Hong Kong is an important center for international finance and trade, with one of the greatest concentrations of corporate headquarters in the Asia-Pacific region. Hong Kong is a highly developed capitalist economy, it is ranked as the freest economy entity in the world by the Index of Economic Freedom every year since 1995. It is known as one of the Four Asian Tigers, including Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and South Korea, for its high growth rates and rapid development from the 1960s to the 1990s.

Hong Kong is one of the most popular destination for international tourists among countries and territories worldwide, with more than 30 million visitors each year since 2010. The sophistication of an international city, cultural diversity and cosmopolitan lifestyle are at the very core of Hong Kong's attractions.
