Location of the Week: Hong Kong
Hong Kong – The People’s Republic of China
After more than 100 years under British rule (1842 – 1997), Hong Kong became the first city-state special administration region of the People’s Republic of China in 1997. Due to its heavy Western influence, this south east asian city is often described as the place where “East meets West.” You will most likely find English speakers here, as Hong Kong ranks third for the largest financial capital of the world, following London and New York City.
