Hong Kong's economy

Somewhere around 200 years ago, Hong Kong was a small fishing village. Can you believe that? Above we have picture of Hong Kong. Can you imagine that as a small fishing village?! I can't.

Hong Kong is now one of the biggest trading ports on international waters! Also did you know that one Hong Kong dollar is equal to 0.13 U.S. cents? The literal name for Hong Kong's currency is Hong Kong Dollar. The Hong Kong dollar is the 8th most traded currency in the world.

Hong Kong food

Hong Kong has many traditions having to do with food. For example, on your birthday it is a tradition to eat noodles to symbolize a long lived life. Citizens of Hong Kong named Hong Kong "The Worlds Food Fair", or at least Hong Kong is known by that name. It is also a tradition for some people of Hong Kong to eat roasted geese on certain occasions.

Past Information:

Hong Kong's past leaders

Hong Kong has only been a part of China since 1997, so It has only had two leaders since it has joined China. Its first leader (since it's been a part of China) was Tung Che Hwa. Hong Kong was first established as a country in 1842. After the first Opium War China took over Hong Kong and gave it to Britain. So, Britain's leaders would have been Hong Kong's leaders until 1842 when Hong Kong was declared it's own country although it was still under British rule.

Hong Kong's past food

Rickshaw Noodles trace back all the way back to the 1940's. They were once a version of fast food. Dim Sum is a rice sheet filed with whatever meat you want. You can choose chicken, shrimp, fish, or even duck (etc.)! This dish has been a part of Hong Kong forever! This dish is also served on streets and you will best find it around the holidays.
