Hong Kong is renowned for its expansive skyline and natural setting and for its unique identity as a cosmopolitan centre. Due to the culture’s mix of the territory’s Chinese roots with the culture brought to it during its time as a British colony/territory, it is a center where the East meets the West in all its traditions. Some 46 buildings unite efforts to produce a brilliant light show (The Symphony of Lights) every night in Victoria Harbour. Hong Kong has a way of balancing a modernised way of life with traditional Chinese practices and the building of Hong Kong has been based on the ancient art of Feng Shui, a system that allows for the heathy flow of wind and water. Both fastidious order and supreme beauty can be seen in the buildings of the modern metropolis of Hong Kong.
