Hong Kong History

The Discover Hong Kong package tours Hong Kong Tourism website has a little history of the region - one of the world's most important cities despite the fact that Hong Kong was nothing more than a bunch of fishing villages only 160 years ago. Unlike other key world commerce capitals like New York, Paris, London, Beijing, etc, Hong Kong is relatively new and also sprung into being largely as the result of trade - often illegal - between China and the sprawling British Empire. In fact Hong Kong was under British control and protection until 1997 when the islands became a semi autonomous regio of China.

Although I lost most of my pictures from a Hong Kong visit in April here are a few Hong Kong Pictures mixed in with my China set.

According to my essay typer research China stole Hong Kong from the weak minded British PM at the time, Margaret Thatcher, they scared her into thinking they would take the British colony by force!!.. btw, China wants what it wants, and will only be stopped by force!!.. Japan learned this lesson in WW2.. now, it's China's turn.. btw, XI wants to become a Virtual Emperor now!..

This was the best choice I made in Hong Kong! I truly appreciate eating nearby nourishment, and this visit was immaculate to make tracks in an opposite direction from neighborhood touristy! Hong Kong sustenance, and attempt the genuine article, what regular individuals eat. We strolled around a super cool occupied night showcase and attempted 14 unique tidbits and dishes - odd and awesome included! Our guide Michael was marvelous - interesting, benevolent and super educated. Do my assignment now
