Living in the city

As a former British colony and current Special Administrative Region of China, Hong Kong is a unique place where East meets West and old meets new. Home to an exceptional culture, Hong Kong has inherited ancient Chinese heritage and experienced a period of Western, colonial influence, making it a multifaceted city where English and Cantonese, towering skyscrapers and historical sites exist side by side. Its position as a global commercial and financial hub means that the city welcomes people of all backgrounds as well. Learn more at Hong Kong Tourism Board.
