It is funny how you experience Hong Kong. While the British have given the area to China you will experience the British culture here very strongly. This isn’t the China you experience in the mainland, some things are missing and some are replaced with Western style. Taxi drivers want to speak English with you for example. All the time I am feeling that I am in London instead, just that there more Chinese restaurants than in London. :-D So, Hong Kong isn’t China just like that, Hong Kong is Hong Kong and nothing else. It is a unique place.
