We all know that Hong Kong is one of Asia’s shopping mecca. With its busy city streets and night markets to its bustling port and center of commerce, Hong Kong is undeniably one of the ultimate business hubs in Asia. Even before Singapore and South Korea and other Asian cities grew international prominence, there was already Hong Kong. This former British colony became China’s Special Administrative Region in 1997 after the transfer of sovereignty from the United Kingdom. Hong Kong now maintains a separate economic and political system from China under the “One Country, Two Systems,” principle.

But with economic and political tension in the background, what will be the future like for this renowned destination?
