Hong Kong is a one of Asia’s most vibrant cities. Its a city with a rich history thanks to a mixture of western and Asian influences.

The name Hong Kong is often used to refer to the main island of Hong Kong that houses the main CBD, in fact Hong Kong also refers to the 236 surrounding islands, the Kowloon peninsular and an area known as the New Territories behind Kowloon.

The largely uninhabited Hong Kong Island was occupied by the British in 1841 and was quickly established as a trading port. A small area of mainland China, behind the Kowloon peninsular, was leased from China in 1897 for 99 years, and was named the New Territories. Hong Kong’s popularity as a trading centre evolved form it central location to the rest of Asia and this has made Hong Kong one of the most densely populated cities on earth.

The whole of Hong Kong was handed back to China, by the British, when the lease of the New Territories ran out in 1997, despite now being part of China, Hong Kong remains a democratic state for at least the next 50 years and today there has been little change despite the fears or some locals prior to the handover.
