One of the wealthiest places on earth. We have our own legal, economic, and government system modeled after UK and is very different from the horrifying government they have in China. As a matter of fact, Hong Kong is one of most capitalistic place in the world. The People of Hong Kong preferred to be called Hong Konger or Hong Kongese because we do not want to nor need to share the notorious title of "Chinese" with them. For all those rednecks in America that thinks Hong Kong is under a communist system and share the same value of human right as China does, this is for you. I don't need to talk about the glamour of the Victoria Harbor because most educated people in the world are well aware of that. However, Hong Kong is indeed a very ghetto-ish place, like many big cities in the world, there are many slums in Hong Kong. The air is terrible in Hong Kong, thanks to our northern neighbor's industrialization. Many Mainlanders claim to dislike Hong Kong, yet many watch Hong Kong movies and listen to Hong Kong music, because the Mainland does not enjoy the high degree of cultural freedom as Hong Kong does. Hong Kong is a very green city, with 90% of the daily commute made by public transport. The Hong Kong culture is very different and unique, it is a mixture of western culture and Chinese culture, although some douche bags in Hong Kong are trying to make it feel all Chinese again just to please the Chinese. We got the best Chinese food here. People are terribly racist in Hong Kong, because over 90% of the population is ethnically Chinese, and there are always some Chinese rednecks in Hong Kong that think the foreigners are here because they want to take over Hong Kong. But most of the normal people here are still very foreigner-friendly and we would like to have different people from all over the world to add more diversity to our culture.
I love my homeland, Hong Kong!
