What makes Hong Kong a cool place to work, live and visit? One part is cultural. Hong Kong’s history as a free international port and hub, devoid of trade limitations, has created a fascinating environment in which Cantonese and Chinese culture mixes easily with Western culture and influences. Walking the streets of the busiest districts, you see people from all over world, hear different languages spoken, and observe interactions taking place through the language (or signs) of least resistance. The other part has to do with Hong Kong being the fast-moving, energetic city, where people love to work and play hard. Visitors benefit especially from the latter. As you will see in this guide, Hong Kong has restaurants and bars, and the facilities for you to shop til you drop, to match any city in the world. Hong Kong is modern and contemporary for sure, following and setting the latest trends. But always not far in the background are the traditions and culture of old China. For both locals and visitors, this fusion is what makes Hong Kong such an inspiration.
