Hong Kong is one of the two Special Administrative Regions of China, consisting of Hong Kong Island and a region which spans across several other islands including Lantau. Hong Kong has the right to remain free from China’s socialist economic system and is thus able to oversee the majority of its own affairs.
Hong Kong is a vibrant commercial metropolis where both Chinese and Western influences combine. The economy of Hong Kong is now services-based and the region is a major banking centre and a prominent hub for China’s thriving export industry. Hong Kong is one of the world’s leading financial centres. Low tax, excellent transportation and a skilled workforce have attracted many of the world’s leading companies. Victoria Harbour deals with all the region’s imports and exports.
Hong Kong is ranked as the ‘freest’ economy in the world. The region has also become a major tourist destination in recent years. The one main commercial airport is Hong Kong International Airport. It’s an important regional trans-shipment hub, passenger terminal and gateway for destinations in China and the rest of Asia.
With business travellers visiting Hong Kong from across the globe, corporate accommodation is more in need than ever. A serviced apartment offers the perfect solution to an extended hotel stay by featuring a range of facilities, more space and greater flexibility. Serviced apartments also offer a more economical alternative to an ordinary hotel room.
