Squashed on to a cramped piece of land, and fragmented into a haphazard puzzle of islands, peninsulas and bays sheltered by steep hills, Hong Kong defies common sense. Nothing is ordinary in this flashy showcase for economic prosperity, with its contrasting landscapes and districts where high-rise tower blocks suddenly give way to unspoilt natural scenery; British Victorian-style buildings stand next to bold contemporary architecture; and Taoist traditions and feng shui survive in this modern, pragmatic world of finance. Chic, disconcerting and bustling with life - that's Hong Kong!
