In Hong Kong, there are over 4000 streets. The names of the streets are multifarious. Every street name has its own story behind. Besides, they have distinctive features. Some are related to animals; some contain British characteristics and so on.
To enhance the cultural and artistic atmosphere in Hong Kong, HKSAR has established a West Kowloon Cultural District, which is located at the waterfront of the west of Yau Ma Tei. Up to now, the WKCD has become the largest-scaled cultural hub in this international city, apart from the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts. Currently, only the waterfront park has been built. Aiming at relaxing and entertaining, it is a place full of a wide variety of green trees, flowers and sculptures. In addition, its design embodies the idea of M+, which is a type of visual concept of a museum to be opened in 2017.
But on the other hand in Hong Kong a business can benefit of low corporate tax rates. Economics factors can have a huge impact on the marketing strategies and objectives. The Hong Kong government plays an important role on the country’s economy and People Republic of China supports the foreign direct investment to contribute to the expansion of the Hong Kong’s economy. Hong Kong has an unemployment rate of 3,4% (based on 2012 HK economic report) and the labor force is more than 3.2450 billion of people. The currency in Hong Kong is the Hong Kong Dollar and 1 HKD equals to 0,13 USD.
Hong Kong is near the China. It is more convenient for foreign wine and other major powerful wine distributor enter to the Chinese market. Hong Kong has become an important role. Since 2008, Hong Kong canceled the wine duty to attract other wine merchants from other countries to invest the wine industry. Hong Kong is a storage area, wine auction and distribution center.
The image above was taken in Causeway Bay near the Times Square. A few Mainland tourists were enjoying the food and drinks bought from a local food stall, while all the trash produced by the customers of the food stall was discarded along the metal barriers. Times Square, a well-known shopping plaza in Hong Kong, attracts loads of tourists to buy luxury goods. Not only does it boom the fashion and cosmetic industries, but also booms neighbouring restaurants and food stalls. However, it has led to an increase in number of leftover and debris, which has notably affected the hygiene and the environment of public areas in Hong Kong.
Different countries have their own unique cultures associated with their society. Hong Kong is one of the international financial cities in the world, where there are many local people and foreigners. About Hong Kong unique culture, I suggest launching a festival that is called “Hong Kong Drinks Festival” for introducing the Hong Kong-styled drinks to people. Reasons for Creating the Festival in Hong Kong There is a similar festival organized in Hong Kong that is “Hong Kong Food Expo”, it has been held for several years and attracts many Hong Kong people and tourists (“Food Expo”, n.d.). However, this festival is not the event for Hong Kong culture, especially for people with panic buying.
Tourism is a pillar to Hong Kong economy, which generated 4.7% of local GDP and over 250 thousands job opportunities (Council Document, 2014).

The industry has produced large numbers of movies at that time, thus leading to a humongous success at the box office. They are mainly hero action movies and comedy. From the data sources taken from Census and Statistics Department and Commerce and Economic Development Bureau, we can see local movies have brought a total of 1240 million Hong Kong dollars to the box office in Hong Kong in the year 1992. On the contrary, the box office of foreign films has reached 312 million Hong Kong dollars, which is only one-quarter of the box office of Hong Kong movies. This fact proved a golden era for the Hong Kong film
The British also helped Hong Kong to develop to a steady and more advanced city, and the importance of it. “ In the first two decades of British rule, the provision of educational opportunities for Hong Kong's growing Chinese community ranked very low on the colonial administration's list of priorities.” (Evans 151) Make this a citation form with the names of the author etc.) Even though at first the Chinese were ranked very low, they eventually became equal and accepted the language barrier between the two countries. English became the core language in 1984. “ As Hong Kong has been a meeting place of Chinese and Western culture since the middle of the nineteenth century….” (Pennington 146) The main reason why did English became one of the core languages in Hong Kong is because since it seemed like inseparable of Hong Kong from the British rule even though Hong Kong is already part of China.
Hong Kong was a British colony for near ten decades. Most Hong Kong people are used to the style of British governance so they prefer it over the governance by the Chinese government even though the city has been returned to China for 15years. Hong Kong people not only lost their senses of belonging for China after the reign of the United Kingdom, but also denied their national identity. According to the survey conducted by The University of Hong Kong (2011), nearly two out of three local people still have not accepted their identity as Chinese. A city that has long adapted the culture of a foreign regime is now forced to adapt the culture of its motherland.
