Make the most of your time ashore .


Vivid and vibrant - a visual feast of cultures . Since 1 July 1997 , Hong Kong has been an autonomous territory of mainland China . A thriving community devoted to business with amazing contrasts , mirrored skyscrapers , paddy fields , luxurious shopping malls and colourful street markets .

INTRODUCING HONG KONG Hong Kong is undoubtedly one of the most exciting destinations in the world . A truly impressive skyline of modern skyscrapers outlines the busy harbour , which is full of sampans , junks , ferries and foreign cargo ships . The streets are crowded and full of colour with people going about their daily business . There will be so many sights and sounds for you to take in that your day in Hong Kong is sure to be simply unforgettable . Hong Kong is a Special Administrative Region of the People ' s Republic of China , lying on the south - east coast of China . The total land area is 424 square miles ( 1 , 100 square kilometres ) , comprising Hong Kong Island , Kowloon and the New Territories , plus 260 outlying Islands Hong Kong enjoys a subtropical climate : the summers are hot and humid , while the autumn months are much cooler with very little rain . The average winter temperature 16°C ( 61°F ) , with a humidity of 73 % . The 1st July 1997 marked the historic date of Hong Kong ' s reversion to Chinese sovereignity . Under a unique arrangement referred to as " One Country . Two Systems " , the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region ( HKSAR ) of China enjoys a degree of autonomy . Hong Kong was mostly under - developed up until the mid 19th century , There is evidence that the islands of Lamma and Lanta were inhabited by fishermen many thousands of years ago and in the Middle Ages pirates lived in Aberdeen . Regular trade between China and Britain began in 1700 and the British traders operated from Macau , a Portuguese colony near Canton . Due to rapid trade expansion Britain needed a Chinese base to operate from and in 1841 , Captain Charles Elliot occupied Hong Kong for this purpose . At that time , trade in opium was flourishing and the British were making huge profits from its sale to the Chinese , much to the disgust of the Emperor of China , and as a result he banned opium . Trade still continued , however , until General Lin Tse - Hsu demanded that all opium supplies be surrendered and then destroyed . William Jardine and James Matheson , the most successful opium traders , persuaded the British Government to use force and resist the ban . General Lin had the opium factory in Canton surrounded and eventually the British surrendered 20 , 000 chests of opium . General Lin hoped that normal trading ( other than in opium ) would continue between the two countries , but this was not to be . Lord Palmerston demanded full payment for the 20 , 000 chests of opium seized from the Canton factory and a treaty for free trade . Fighting once again erupted and Captain Elliot took Hong Kong island as he felt it would be an ideal centre for British trade with China and a good place for the British and their families to live . The British Government were unhappy with his choice and the Foreign Secretary wrote to Elliot , " you have obtained the cession of Hong Kong , a bare island with hardly a home upon it . Now it seems obvious that Hong Kong will not be a mart of trade . . . " ( if only someone had given him a crystal ball ! ) . As a result , Elliot was replaced by Sir Henry Pottinger who became the first Governor of Hong Kong and from then on the island was on the road to becoming " a vast emporium of commerce and wealth " .

In 1842 , Lord Palmerston ' s demands were finally met and relations between Britain and China returned to normal . In 1907 , the opium trade was finally stopped . In 1860 , Britain gained the Kowloon peninsula and in 1898 the New Territories were released to Britain for 99 years . Since then Hong Kong has become an important Far East trade and financial centre and a popular tourist destination , the only interruption to its growth being the Japanese occupation during the Second World War . Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People ' s Republic of China was established as of 1st July 1997 . Under the Sino - British Joint Declaration on the future of Hong Kong , signed in 1984 and registered with the United Nations , the reversion of sovereignty brings very little change . This has been guaranteed by China in the Basic Law . Hong Kong ' s capitalist system will remain unchanged for at least 50 years . The terriority will be free to continue its own political , social and economic systems , and will enjoy a high degree of autonomy except in foreign affairs and defence matters . Hong Kong is now run by Hong Kong people . The government is headed by a Chief Executive who is a Hong Kong citizen , selected by a Selection Committee comprised of Hong Kong people , rather than a Governor appointed by the Queen in the UK . Hong Kong will keep its own laws ( British common law system ) . The Judiciary will remain independent with a Final Court of Appeal based in Hong Kong , Hong Kong will maintain its existing border and its own immigration controls . Controls will be maintained on the movement of people from China into Hong Kong EXPLORING Tsim Sha Tsui Nathan Road is Kowloon ' s main thoroughfare and it is teeming with life day and night .
