East Meets West & Tradition Meets Modernity (18/31)

Hong Kong is a melting pot of influences which has shaped it into the city it is today. This city is semi-independent, it’s basically a part of China in many ways, but still, it has its own currency and passports. Part of China, it was invaded by the British and Japanese, and all three have come together to create a Hong Kong where East meets West and ancient traditions compliment its modernity.

Hidden among the skyscrapers and malls, Hong Kong has plenty of cultural gems to uncover, from temples and museums to a beautiful Chinese garden.
