Hong Kong, Asia’s World City, Flourishes in the 1960s
Hong Kong has been referred to as the Fragrant Harbor, most known for towering skyscrapers. This city is so huge that the Hong Kong National Airport covers the same ground as about 20 American football fields (and that’s the airport alone! Can you imagine?).
Hong Kong is actually Asia’s business capital; with a well-established international financial market, it attracts tourists and investors from all over the world, thus earning the nickname: “Asia’s World City”. What has partly allowed for the impressive development of Hong Kong is its position over a large, deep water port, which allowed for international trade.
