Living & Working In Hong Kong
Welcome to a dazzling city of bright lights and relentless energy, from towering skyscrapers to old-style traditional Chinese neighbourhoods, the city is a perfect example of where Eastern culture meets the West.
Voted the "world's most-livable city" in 2012 by The Economist magazine, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated countries in the world with a population of over 7.1 million people in an area of 1,100 square kilometres. Imagine something like the population of Ireland crammed and stacked into County Dublin, and you get the idea.
Hong Kong, a special administrative region of China, is made up of three geographical areas: Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula and the New Territories. Hong Kong Island is a bustling international business city, famous for its dim sum, shopping and fast pace of life. Kowloon, an urban area opposite the island, is full of markets, temples and crumbling tenement blocks. Beyond Kowloon lies the New Territories, a rural and scenic terrain of villages, beaches and heritage sites that border with mainland China.
