Hong Kong Harbour at night

The story behind "Hong Kong Harbour at night"

Hong Kong is a strange place, a mix of cultures, nature and ideaologies. I spent only a few hours there on a stopover but noticed the coexistence of old buildings and traditional cooking vs the skyscrapers and the fake Louis Vuitton bags..

Hong Kong was a crown colony of the United Kingdom from 1842 until the transfer of its sovereignty to the People’s Republic of China in 1997. The Sino-British Joint Declaration and the Basic Law of Hong Kong stipulate that Hong Kong operate with a high degree of autonomy until at least 2047, fifty years after the transfer. Under the policy of “one country, two systems”, the Central People’s Government is responsible for the territory’s defence and foreign affairs, while Hong Kong maintains its own legal system, police force, monetary system, customs policy, immigration policy, and delegates to international organisations and events.
