Happy 10th birthday Hong Kong SAR!
It is ten years since Hong Kong returned to Chinese sovereignty. So far, under Deng Xiaoping's "one country, two systems" regime, HK has remained a vibrant global titan. Hong Kongers have seen off Chinese attempts to pass "anti-subversion" laws. Hopefully, democracy will come soon.
After all of my travels, HK is still definitely my favourite city after London!
