Hong Kong

DESTINATION

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China is situated on China’s southeastern coast. Hong Kong is comprised of the island of Hong Kong, the Kowloon Peninsula, the New Territories, and another 235 other islands of various shapes and sizes. The area of Hong Kong is roughly 1,100 square kilometers, which is about half the size of Tokyo. The majority of Hong Kong’s territory is mountainous, obliging Hong Kong’s population of roughly 7 million to live in densely populated urban centers. Hong Kong became a British colony as a result of 1842 Treaty of Nanking. Under British colonial rule, Hong Kong became a strategic military and commercial hub for Great Britain. Under Britain’s policies of laissez faire and administrative minimalism, Hong Kong achieved tremendous economic growth and prosperity. The repatriation of Hong Kong to China in 1997 has had little effect on tourism as the Hong Kong dollar remains in use and visitors can still enter Hong Kong without visas (for stays of 90 days or less). The day-to-day lives of the residents of Hong Kong have similarly remained more or less unchanged as the laws that were in place prior to Hong Kong’s repatriation continued to remain in effect. From the standpoint of commerce, Hong Kong maintains its standing as a free-trade port. The official languages of Hong Kong are English and Chinese. While a large number of residents speak Cantonese, a growing number speak Modern Standard Chinese (Mandarin). More than 10 million travelers visit Hong Kong each year from all over the world in order to enjoy the fine restaurants and shopping and to experience Hong Kong’s unique fusion of Chinese and Western culture.

CASE STUDY

  • Team_6

    A renowned skin care company from South Africa

     

    *in Hong Kong 2014.

    *We intertwined corporate meetings and team-building exercises to accomplish the objectives of their trip and also to allow them to enjoy what our vibrant city had to offer. Most importantly was the team building arrangements. We recommended the treasure hunt for them to search for their products in Hong Kong, this worked well not only as an ice breaking exercise but also a chance to get to know each other better. After lunch, the group went to participate in a dragon-boat race. This included learning the history of the dragon boat, exercises to warm up, selecting their teammates, setup of the boat, practice on the water before racing for fun and glory.
