And if Manhattan were in China?

Anyone who arrives in Hong Kong for the first time cannot help but see in it an Asian New York. But after this first impression, Hong Kong has many unexpected surprises in store.

Although the city worships at the altar of unbridled capitalism, Hong Kong also has more than 600 temples, including 300 dedicated to Tin Hau, goddess of the sky and the sea. Another surprise!

The British are gone, but the double-decker bus and cucumber sandwiches at ‘five o'clock tea made in Peninsula' remain. Here, helicopters and racehorses can be found on the roofs of skyscrapers.

Do movies use Hong Kong as a mere backdrop or does Hong Kong make itself into the city it sees on the movie screen? All we know is that its production industry has become the third largest in the world, so much so that Jackie Chan and Michelle Yeoh have made their way to the big and small screens of tens of millions of fans in China, Malaysia, the Philippines…
