Hong Kong Island Hotels Accommodation Guide

Hong Kong was incipiently considered a worthless plot of land with no resources and little flat-lying areas. Most of the flat areas we see today are reclaimed land. The British Empire saw no merit in the island; its coastline was rugged, there was no river, it had little arable farmland, and it lacked mineral resources. The first British settlement (Western district) was a rigorously malaria-infested area.

Nevertheless, the harbor lodged between its northern coast and the peninsular of Kowloon jutting out from the mainland was nearly perfect. This 45 sq. km of harbor was thought to be the best deep-water port in the entire region. After many colonial governors later, the value of Hong Kong has gained much clarity.

This 368m structure was designed by the renowned Chinese-American architect, I M Pei.
