Hong Kong is since 1 July 1997 a ”Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China”. That was when the former British colony was handed over. Afterwards, this administrative region has been allowed to keep some of its traditions and a level of freedom of speech is allowed. Gay life here has always been more alive than in the People’s Republic and in Hong Kong the shops take centre stage.
The climate is sub-tropical with around 18 degrees in the winter and over 30 degrees in the summer.
