Hong Kong
Situated on China's south coast, Hong Kong is one of the financial capitals of the world and a major
industrial and commercial centre. The territory came under British rule in 1842, but was handed back to
China when the lease expired in 1997. The Japanese occupied Hong Kong during World War 2.
