Take a look inside the Hong Kong guide.
Hong Kong clings on to the southern coast of China at the point where the Pearl River Delta meets the South China Sea. A part of China, but still very distinct. Its history has fashioned its identity. Capitalist in nature and name - it is one of the world's leading financial centres. It is also one of the most densely populated areas in the world, compressed into a compact area mainly on the mountain slopes of Hong Kong Island and parts of the Kowloon Peninsula. This urban concentration is both a positive and negative influence on lifestyle. Although Hong Kong is also made up of 200 islands and a surprising number of secluded bays and park land.
