The 2019 iGeo - Hong Kong, China

At the south-eastern tip of China, Hong Kong is a vibrant city, and a major gateway to the Mainland China. The territory covers Hong Kong Island, Lantau Island, the Kowloon Peninsula and the New Territories, including 262 outlying islands. Between Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula lies Victoria Harbour, one of the world's most renowned deep-water harbours. Hong Kong is a world-class destination that rewards anyone who takes the time to explore its many layers. A rich assortment of sights stretching to the far reaches of the city, all packed into a small space. From world-class museums, ornate temples and tranquil nature parks, to bustling markets. The rich contrast of living culture in Hong Kong is extraordinary. A fascinating blend of East and West, Chinese and colonial, the customs, rituals, traditions and practices are a wonderful mishmash (http://www.discoverhongkong.com).
