TESOL Certification Course in Hong Kong
It’s one of the few cities in the world which managed to meld the East with its Western influences. A vibrant, 24-hour city, Hong Kong is a city which has long been under British occupation. Today, however, they are part of mainland China although they do maintain their own set of laws. Unlike the rest of China which has stringent laws and an age-old culture, you will still see traces of this influence when visiting Hong Kong. But the thing that sets it apart is the fact that the entire Hong Kong area enjoys a relatively carefree, western style of living – making it a tourist hub in Asia.
It also helps that the first ever Disneyland in the region was built here. Other districts in Hong Kong where there’s a flurry of tourist attractions include its financial center in Central, East and South Coast; Kowloon which is where most of the street markets are situated; the New Territories which have pleasant farms and villages; the beach destination Lantau; and the Outlying Islands.
