Hong Kong is the Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China. The territory consists of four main areas: Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, the New Territories, and the Outlying Islands.

Possessing its metropolitan dynamic that we have come to know Hong Kong, it’s hard to imagine the area used to be agrarian farming and fishing villages. Hong Kong is now Asia’s key financial center and commercial port. Once a British colony, this vibrant city features an interesting East-meets-West vibe and unique (and mouth-watering) culinary culture.
