For Details on the Program:
A tropical climate, hilly and mountainous terrain, the busiest deep-water port in the world, and a tightly-packed modern international city are just some of the things that make Hong Kong distinctive and attractive to visitors. Hong Kong practices fast-paced market capitalism, blending Chinese traditions and high technology. The presence of a robust business climate and a long history makes Hong Kong a fascinating setting in which to learn about business, economics, politics, culture, and Asia in general. Under control of the United Kingdom since 1841, Hong Kong became the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) of the People's Republic of China in 1997. Hong Kong is made up of the Kowloon Peninsula, Hong Kong Island, and over 200 other islands at the southeastern tip of China. Hong Kong has a tropical monsoon climate. Public transportation is the preferred means of travel. Taxis, buses, trains (both above and below ground), ferries and bikes are the primary means of transportation. The public transportation system is extremely efficient, well run and inexpensive.
