The Hidden Gems of Hong Kong | The Greatest Cities in the World: Hong Kong

  • Published 5 months ago

Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta in South China.
The region has been largely free to manage its own affairs based on “one country, two systems,” a national unification policy developed by Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping in the 1980s.
The country has a population of 7.5 million as of 2019, and occupies an area of 1,106km2.
In this documentary, we head to the Far East to experience a day in the life of Hong Kong, a complex city that is a mix of the ancient and modern, East and West, and where consumerism and spiritualism live side by side.
The author helps run a stall at a bird market, goes on a bus ride with a group of Chinese tourists, has a water fight with a troop of boy scouts and joins schoolchildren being taught a unique method of mental arithmetic.
