Travelling is freedom - BastiĀ“s global journeys

Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a unique place to visit: colonized by the British, it adopted Western law and living style. In 1997, it was then handed over to China and is now a Special Administrative Region, meaning that it keeps a certain degree of autonomy, at least in theory. In practice Hong Kong is colliding with China all the time: the people are open-minded, consumerist, liberal people who do not fit the Chinese model. This makes for an amazing place to see, with its incredible mix of Chinese culture and Western lifestyle.
