East and West Culture in Hong Kong

Description

Culture and heritage are what sets Hong Kong apart from the rest of Asia – indeed the world. With over 160 years of colonial history and a large Chinese population, Hong Kong is a unique fusion of Western and Eastern cultures where the old and the new live side by side. Its incense filled temples, colonial building, glass and steel skyscrapers, along with its ancient traditions and lively festivals, have made Hong Kong a living culture experience. Hong Kong's diverse range of museums provides fascinating insights into the territory's colorful history and development and includes one dedicated to onetime resident and China revolutionary Dr. Sun Yat-sen.

Others cover art, history, heritage, antiquities, film, medical sciences, housing, police and much more. There are also museums of science, space, and such special interest subjects as teaware.
