Die Volksrepublik China liegt im Osten des eurasischen Kontinents, am westlichen Ufer des Pazifiks. Mit insgesamt 9,6 Millionen Quadratkilometern ist China eines der größten Länder der Erde. Damit ist China das drittgrößte Land der Erde. Es macht 1/4 des Festlands Asiens aus und entspricht fast 1/15 der Festlandsfläche der Erde. Die größte Ausdehnung von Ost nach West beträgt über 5 200 km.

China ist das bevölkerungsreichste Land der Welt. Die Bevölkerungszahl macht 21% der Weltbevölkerung aus. China ist ein einheitlicher Nationalitätenstaat mit 56 ethnischen Gruppen, wobei die Han-Chinesen 92% der gesamten Bevölkerung ausmachen. Die anderen 55 ethnischen Minderheiten, zu denen zum Beispiel Mongolen, Hui, Tibeter, Uiguren, Miao, Yi, Zhuang, Bouyei, Koreaner, Mandschuren, Dong und Yao zählen, haben vergleichsweise wenigere Angehörige.

China blickt auf eine Geschichte von 5.000 Jahren zurück und ist Heimat einer der ältesten Zivilisationen der Welt. Die lange Geschichte hat nicht nur die kulturelle Vielfalt geschafft, sondern auch zahlreiche historische Relikte hinterlassen. Chinesisch ist die in ganz China verwendete Sprache und auch eine der sechs von der UNO bestimmten Amtssprachen.

China ist ein faszinierendes Reiseziel und hält für den Besucher viele Überraschungen bereit, da China nicht nur aus Peking und Shanghai besteht und keineswegs nur die Chinesische Mauer oder die Verbotene Stadt zu bieten hat. Jeder der 22 Provinzen, 5 autonomen Gebieten, 4 regierungsunmittelbaren Städten und die Sonderverwaltungsgebiete Hongkong und Macao bieten gänzlich unterschiedliche Eindrücke und Erfahrungen bei Reisen nach China.

Hong Kong Introduction

Hong Kong is acknowledged as a shopping paradise, dietary world, leisure summer resort, and culture window as well.

Random photo: Impressions of China

Hong Kong is very small—it is only a dot on a map of the world.

Hong Kong only has an area of 1,104 square kilometers, less than one-100,000th of the global area. Its population of 6.73 million is one-1,000th of the world’s population. However, Hong Kong enjoys big fame in the world over. Reputed ass an international financial, trading, shipping, information, tourism and free port, it is the world champion in a dozen fields.

China resumed the sovereignty over Hong Kong at zero hour, July 1, 1997.
The inland China is also the largest market for Hong Kong’s enter pot trade and the top source of re-export goods. Hong Kong earns more than 120 billion HK dollars a year from enter pot trade with the inland China.
Tourism has been a pillar of Hong Kong’s economy for decades. In 2003, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) received 15.537 million visitors by turnstile count, of whom 6.83 million from the inland China.
Hong Kong is acknowledged as a shopping paradise, dietary world, leisure summer resort, and culture window as well.

The Chinese Government has on many occasions reiterated its commitment to a stable and prosperous Hong Kong by adhering to the policy of “one country, two systems,” “Hong Kong people governing Hong Kong,” and “a high degree of autonomy,” which are all guaranteed in the Basic Law of the HKSAR. The Basic Law stipulates in legal terms that the current economic and social systems as well as the lifestyle in Hong Kong will remain intact. The central government will leave Hong Kong affairs to the HKSAR government, with the exception of issues related to defense and foreign affairs. While guaranteeing complete financial independence for Hong Kong, the Basic Law requires the HKSAR to ensure a proper economic and legal environment to retain its status as an international financial center and free port.

Hong Kong Continues to Move Ahead

During eight years since the return of Hong Kong in 1997, the Basic Law has been fully implemented, paving the way for the smooth operation of Hong Kong’s own social, economic, administrative, legislative and judicial systems. Hong Kong, a free port and one of the world’s safest cities, continues to enjoy its position as a major world financial, trade and shipping center. It still boasts one of the world’s safest cities, continues to enjoy its position as a major world financial, trade and shipping center. It still boasts one of the world’s most liberal and dynamic economic systems. With its strategic location at the doorway to the inland China, Hong Kong has been serving as a global center for trade, finance, business and communications. Hong Kong has now ranked as the ninth largest trading center in the world. Now more and more Hong Kong people believe he inland China is the best support for the further development of Hong Kong and also that Hong Kong is an important window and bridge between the inland China and the outside world.

The Return of Hong Kong to China

As early as 1689, the fragrance of the Hong Kong Harbour lured British merchant vessels to its shores. But it was not until 1816 that the East India Company made regular use of the port, trading in opium, cotton, manufactured goods, tea and silk, As years went on, the British desire for increased trade and a free port with no barriers to trade escalated. Tensions mounted between China and Britain, resulting in the Opium Wars, between 1840-1842. In March 1842, Sir Henry Pottinger, who later became the first governor of Hong Kong, declared Hong Kong open to indiscriminate and free trading. However, in the eyes of both China and Britain, Hong Kong was not considered a colony until one year later, June 26, 1843 with the ratification of the Nanjing Treaty. In 1898, with the signing of the Beijing Treaty, the British sphere of influence expanded to include the Kowloon Peninsula north of Boundary Street.

By the turn of 20th century, Hong Kong had secured itself as one of the world’s major trading ports. The face of the harbour changed constantly and drastically with no regard for the past. It was no longer a portrait of classical colonial buildings, but a spectacle of towering buildings clamouring higher than the clouds above.

In the late 1970s and on into the 1980s, as the expiry of the-99-year lease approached, the government of the People’s Republic of China took up a fervent interest in the return of Hong Kong to China. In 1978, the Chinese Government established a “one country, two systems” policy for the new Special Administrative Region. On December 19, 1984, representatives of both the Chinese and British governments formally signed a joint declaration declaring the return of the territory to the motherland on July 1, 1997.

Tung Chee-hwa 董建华, incumbent chief executive of the Hong Kong SAR was re-elected uncontested in the SAR’s second chief executive election in late February 2002. He resigned in March 2005 due to health condition.

Exploring Hong Kong

There is so much to explore in Hong Kong, but you may have a problem knowing where to start, so here is a hint. Just step outside and start exploring. There is a good chance you will be in the vicinity of a famous landmark, museum, shopping center, market, park restaurant or water hole. Hong Kong is divided into three main areas: Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories. Plus the Outlying Islands lie in the surrounding waters of the South China Sea The pages that follow detail just some of the amazing things you can See and do in each of these areas. Walking is the best way to explore, and efficient public transportation makes it easy to get from place to place. From modern skyscrapers to traditional temples and villages that have changed little over the centuries, Hong Kong has it all-often side-by-side. The choice is endless, but you can never go wrong.

Hong Kong Disneyland 香港迪斯尼乐园

Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa announced on November 2, 1999 that an agreement was reached between Hong Kong and the Walt Disney Corporation in the United States to build a Disney theme park and resort on Penny’s Bay on the north of Lantau against the backdrop of the South China Sea. The agreement followed nine months of solid negotiations. The ground-breaking ceremony was held on January 12, 2003. The ceremony marked the beginning of the construction of the 126-hectare Phase I, China’s first Disney theme park. The entrance fee for the park, scheduled to open in late 2005, will be around HK $ 250 (US $32) , lower than the widely expected HK $ 300 (US $ 38). The theme park will include two hotels and a retail, dining and entertainment complex. The park will be the world’s fifth Disney theme park and the third outside the United States, following Tokyo in Japan and Paris in France. Tung Chee-hwa told a news briefing that the Hong Kong Disneyland would ensure that Hong Kong becomes the “favourable tourist destination” in the region, strengthening its status as a “world city” and helping sustain economic recovery and growth. The UKASR government will invest 22.45 billion HK dollars (US $ 2.28 billion) in the project. The park is expected to attract over 5 million people in its first year of operation. This figure is expected to rise to 10 million after 15 years. The massive project will create around 6,000 jobs during the construction phase and some 10,000 jobs by the land reclamation and other associated work. The project will bring an estimated 148 billion HK dollars (US $ 18.97 billion) into the HK economy over a 40-year period—eight times the original investment. The Disney Theme Park would enhance Hong Kong’s tourism potential and establish its status as “Asia’s premier tourism destination city.” The Disney development will benefit not only tourism, but also related sectors, like catering and transport. It would also strength Hong Kong’s image and position as the leading international city in Asia. The Disneyland project conforms the government’s “sustainable development” strategy. Since Hong Kong is densely populated, developing heavy industry would have a detrimental effect on living standards. Hong Kong needs entertainment facilities. Building a theme park is far better than building a container terminal. The project would help promote Hong Kong’s role as a tourism destination in Asia and stimulate Hong Kong’s economic development. Disney’s choice of Hong Kong people’s confidence in their future.

Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center 香港会展中心

Encompassing nearly 250,000 square meters and opened in 1988 on the Wan Chai waterfront, the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center is an integrated complex with exhibition halls, hotels, theatres, harbour-facing restaurants and impressive “glass-curtain” walls, which provide magnificent views of the harbour and the city. The original building was expanded in 1997 with an elegant extension that resembles a soaring bird and is meant to symbolize the free spirit of the city. The world’s attention focused here on June 30, 1997 with the ceremony marking Hong Kong’s return to China. Enjoying pride of place on the waterfront is a six-meter-high golden bauhinia statue, presented to the people of Hong Kong on this momentous occasion.

Causeway Bay and Happy Valley 铜锣湾∕跑马地

Causeway Bay is to Hong Kong what Times Square to New York—vibrant, exciting, neon-lit and flooded with wall-to-wall people from all corners of the world. It is a crossroads of the city, a major shopping and entertainment area, and home to large Japanese department stores. On race days much of the attention shifts to the nearby Happy Valley Racecourse, where billions of Hong Kong dollars are wagered every race meeting. Races at Happy Valley began in 1846 on reclaimed marshland, but today the track is ultra-sophisticated with computerized betting and races races broadcast live on gigantic screens. The nearby Hong Kong Racing Museum is popular with horseracing buffs. Eight galleries and a showcase cinema trace the phenomenal success story of horseracing in Hong Kong, from the first track built on reclaimed marshland in the 1840s to the record-breaking betting turnovers of today.

Ocean Park/Middle Kingdom/Water World 海洋公园/集古村/水上乐园

Ocean Park, Hong Kong’s most bustling tourist attraction, the largest entertainment complex in East Asia, opened a new attraction in early January 2001 that recreates the cultural attractions and natural habitat of the California Coast of North America. Pacific Pier encompasses more than 4,000 square meters and strives to make the area as close to a natural setting as possible, including waves, rocky shorelines and a beach. As Ocean Park’s first attraction specifically designed on a single theme, Pacific Pier is now home to 14 sea lions, eight harbour seals and one grey seal. It also features California themed exhibits and dining and shopping areas specially designed to provide visitors with a real-life California experience. Apart from taking visitors on a real-life journey to the California Coast, Pacific Pier also provides visitors close encounters with animals through shows and exhibits. Opened in January 1977, Ocean Park has over the years built itself into a world-class attraction and ranks among the world’s top 25 theme parks in attendance.

Outlying Islands 外(离)岛

Of Hong Kong’s more than 260 outlying islands, only a few of them such as Lantau Island大岛屿,Cheung Chau长洲,Camma Island南丫岛 and Peng Chau 坪洲 are populated. Visiting the islands is a wonderful way to hike in the lush and underdeveloped countryside and wander through quiet villages. The main islands are no more than an hour away by ferry.

Repulse Bay 浅水湾

Primarily a well-to-do residential area, Repulse Bay has a relaxed, almost resort-like atmosphere. The wide beach is popular with residents and great for sandy strolls. The Life Guard Club, built in traditional Chinese style, features statues of Kuan Yum and Tin Hau, both protectors of fishermen, Repulse Bay arcade, resembling the original luxury hotel that occupied the site, houses shops and restaurants.

Stanley 赤柱

Most likely the visitor has already heard about the Stanley Market. This is the place to find silk garments, sportswear, art, Chinese costume jewel, souvenirs and other bargains, and is definitely worth the half-day or so it will take to visit. But Stanley offers much more to while away the hours. There is relaxing beach, quiet waterfront restaurants, a Tin Hau Temple天后庙, the Old Stanley Fort (accessible only with a permit) and some historic military sites. Stanley was heavily shelled in World War II, and it is believed that the Tin Hau Goddess saved villagers’ lives. The temple is located on the outskirts of Ma Hang Village, beyond the Stanley Market and picturesque bay. A military cemetery opposite St Stephen’s Beach is the final resting place of allied soldiers who died here during the war. At the other end of the village the visitor will find the Old Police Station. An historical landmark, it was renovated in 1993 into a thoroughly modern restaurant that retains its unusual heritage.

Tin Hau Temple is located in the heart of Yau Ma Tei and is Hong Kong’s most interesting temple complex. The four temples inside are nearly a century old. The main temple is dedicated to the Taoist deity Tin Hau, Goddess of the Sea. The others are devoted to the God of the City, God of the Earth and Goddess of Mercy. In the courtyard, fortune-tellers read chime (bamboo fortune sticks), which contain cryptic messages that need to be translated.

Tsing Ma Bridge/Lantau Link Visitors’ Center and Viewing Paltform 青马大桥/铁青屿干线访客中心及观景台

This center offers even more behind-the-scenes details of the Tsing Ma Bridge’s construction—and incredible views. The HK $ 13.1 billion Lantau Link connects Lantau Island and the Hog Kong International Airport to Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. The viewing platform overlooks Hong Kong’s two busiest shipping channels. The Tsing Ma Bridge totals 2,200 meters.

Victoria Peak (an elevation of 554 meters) 太平山顶

Hong Kong has perhaps the most extraordinary and legendary vista of any modern city in the world. Mushrooming skyscrapers and high-rise residential blocks encircle the vibrant harbour, with the hills of Kowloon in the distance. An upper-class residential area in British occupied times, the Peak is still Hong Kong’s pushiest area with rent for a one-bedroom apartment starting as high as HK $ 50,000 per month. One glimpse of the awe-inspiring view and the price may seem more reasonable. Whether by day or night, Victoria Peak is a must-see.

The best way to get to the top is by the Peak Tram, a historical funicular railway, which carves a steep 373-meter-high swathe up the lush mountainside. Try to get seats at the front of the tram on the right-hand side. Breathtaking is the only way to describe the panorama of soaring buildings and harbour views from this vantage point. To avoid the crowds, catch the first tram up in the morning and enjoy the splendour in solitude. A quick way to Hong Kong’s most specutacular lookout point, the funicular tram (simultaneous ascending and descending cars hooked together by a huge cable) is not to be missed. Operating since 1888, this authentically refurbished cable railway climbs the 373 meters to the Peak Terminus in eight minutes and used to complete wit sedan chairs as the most popular way up. The tram runs daily 7am-midnight at 10-minute intervals.

Perched like an eagle’s nest high above the incredible harbour and cityscape, the wok-shaped Peak Tower offers viewing terraces and other attractions. The visitor will enjoy the rides and exhibits. Next door, the Peak Galleria is the city’s highest shopping plaza. The visitor can dine on a balcony overlooking the harbour or enjoy panoramic views from restaurants and terraces. Just across the road is the charming Peak Café, housed in a building that was originally a station for sedan chairs.

Wan Chai 湾仔

The days of Suzie Wong as portrayed in the 1957 movie may be long gone, but Wan Chai is still known for its lively nightlife replete with all manner of bars and restaurants. There is also a dizzying array of shops and markets, and cultural venues such as Hong Kong Academy for performing arts and the Hong Kong Arts Center. There are hostess bars along Lockhar Road, and although they have lost much of their luster over the years it is worth a visit to See the garnish neon. There are British and Irish pubs, dance clubs, and a zesty street life that is always full of surprises. Wan Chai tends to be a very late-night spot, and the visitor can party literally till dawn or later.

Vor 90 Jahren eröffnete in der Kantstraße in Berlin das erste China-Restaurant in Deutschland. 1923 war dies ein großes Ereignis. Fremdes kannten die Deutschen damals nur aus Zeitungen, Kolonialaustellungen und aus dem Zoo. Heute gibt es etwa 10.000 China-Restaurants in Deutschland. Gastronomieexperten schätzen jedoch, dass in nur 5 % (rund 500) Originalgerichte gibt. Üblich sind europäisierte, eingedeutschte Gerichte in einem chinesischen Gewand.
