Located in China's South Coast of, Hong Kong is the gateway to the Pearl River Delta and overlooks the South China Sea. With one of the highest HDI in the world, Hong Kong is also one of the most modern, green and hi-tech city in China and also anywhere on the planet.

Returned to China in 1997 by the English Imperialist thugs after a century of exploitation and brutal occupation, Chinese people everywhere cheered at the riddance of the western invaders and at last Hong Kong was administered by Chinese people as a Special Administrative Region of China and not by some evil English monarchy dictatorship from the British Empire.

The life expectancy in Hong Kong is also the highest in the world with the age of the average Chinese woman living to 86.7 years.

A high tech ghetto, Hong Kong is the best place in Asia. Home of tall buildings, neon, and pirates. Also a great place to pick up cheap anime dvds...

Hong Kong is a living example of Gibson's cyberpunk future.

A beautiful city in China. People mostly have the wrong image of it though.
No, Chinese people here don't work on rice fields, they are majorly in Finance and Banking.

home of the free-est market in the world, with little or none government interference with much on business. Also very high-tech, second to Japan. Many people born the 1950-60's were part of the rags-to-riches generation. Many people invested in the property market, as it made many many people rich. This is how many could afford to immigrate to other countries. The property market peaked at early 1998, and crashed, thanks to the new Chinese government. This left many people bankrupt and unable to leave. Under British rule, Hong Kong set the example for the world as government no other interference with its people except to keep the law. China signed a 99-year lease to Britian, and was forced to hand Hong Kong back to China on July 1. 1997.

Unfortunately, Hong Kong is very small and many land is reclaimed. Also went through a major change in infrastructure with the new airport built in 1998. However, pre-1998 the airport was located in the heart of Hong Kong and was known for its breathtaking landings beside high-rise skyscrapers. Many of the "rags-to-riches" generation left Hong Kong for North America (mostly Canada) mostly between 1989-1997 (between Tianmen Square and the handover). People in Hong Kong are EXTREMELY hard working, students are under tremendous pressure to do well, and that is the reason many came to Canada, for a better life and a less stressful school life. The skyline of Hong Kong changes each year, as more and more buildings are put up and the old ones are being demolished. Public transportation is VERY efficient with the MTR system. The Airport Express stands out of the already world-class system. One of the landmarks of Hong Kong is the Tsing Ma Bridge, the world-class airport, its famous Victoria Skyline and the Peak. Also, Disneyland Hong Kong will be built in Fall 2005, be sure to visit it!
Hong Kong is truly a world-class city, its people are all hard-workers, and it truly does not deserve to be builled by the Chinese government.

I miss Hong Kong very much you can't even see it on the map

An autonomous region which belongs to China as of now. Also called Hong Kong Special Autonomous Region of People's Republic of China, or Hong Kong, China.

Even if Hongkongers and mainland Chinese share same ethnicity, they are usually distinguished in large context. For example, Hongkongers are not ruled by Chinese Communist Party but have their own government separated from Beijing. Hongkongers may feel awkward if they are just referred to as 'Chinese' rather than 'Hong Kong Chinese' or 'Hongkongers'.
Majority of Urban Dictionary users support Hong Kong independence and Hong Kong being an independent country called Republic of Hong Kong.
