Hong Kong is probably the best example of an international city, a representation of how well East and West can converge seamlessly. Hong Kong or HK is a Special Administrative Region and is technically ruled by the government of China. However, it keeps its own legal system and currency. Hong Kong is right next door to Shenzhen, China and across the China Sea from Macau. If you are thinking of going on a holiday, Hong Kong, which means “fragrant harbour” in Cantonese, is the perfect destination.
