Hong Kong is officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) of the People’s Republic of China. Now an autonomous territory on the Pearl River Delta of East Asia, Hong Kong was formerly British colony for nearly 150 years before the transfer of sovereignty to China in 1997.
Skyscraper filled Hong Kong is a densely populated urban centre, a major port facility, and a global financial hub. With a total land area of 1,106 square kilometers (427 sq mi) and a population of over 7.3 million, Hong Kong ranks as the world’s fourth most densely populated sovereign state or territory.
As densely packed with humanity as Hong Kong is, most of the territory is a rural landscape with cloudy mountains and rocky islands. Much of the countryside is classified as Country Park and, although over 7 million people are close at hand, it’s possible to find pockets of wilderness within a short drive from the city.
Hong Kong is a major shopping destination, famed for tailors and Temple Street Night Market. In 2014, Hong Kong was the eleventh most popular destination for international tourists among countries and territories worldwide. A total of 27.8 million visitors contributed over US$38 billion in international tourism receipts. Obviously a tourist mecca like Hong Kong has an abundance of hotels. Some are listed here…
