Phileas Fogg found that Hong Kong resembled Britain: “Docks, hospitals, wharves, a Gothic cathedral, a government house, macadamised streets, give to Hong Kong the appearance of a town in Kent or Surrey transferred by some strange magic to the antipodes.” What we see there today is a completely new world and a strange mixture of culture. Take a look: you are welcome to form your own opinion!

PS: And a little surprise for our readers: enjoy Hong Kong in motion.
