Hong Kong is a metropolitan area and a special administrative region of China located on the southern coast of the country, between the Pearl River Delta and the South China Sea.
With an area of over 1000 square-kilometre and a population of 7.5 million residents, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world. In recent years, the financial crisis has led to severe impoverishment of part of the population, forcing thousands of people to move into smaller and often decrepit apartments.
For all of you lovers of decadent aesthetics, of the sordid yet raw reality of the world, we warmly recommend you to visit the West Kowloon district. Apartments are ramshackled and the buildings are severely deteriorated. People live here like animals in cages. We also advise you to visit Bruce Lee’s former house in Kowloon Tong. Sadly, the home of Hong Kong’s martial arts legend is today in a state of total decay.For shopping, we urge you to go to Mong Kok, Asia’s most important counterfeiting district.
