The islands that make up Hong Kong provide the ultimate East-meets-West scene and the city is famous for its strong "work hard, play hard" focus. With a vibrant nightlife scene jam-packed with clubs and bars alongside successful businesses making the numerous high-rise blocks their work place, many expats move to Hong Kong to work and to achieve this high-flying lifestyle. But Hong Kong also has plenty of nature to explore — if you like outdoor activities, you will love the sub-tropical hiking trails and exploring the nearby Asia Pacific region. Accommodation in Hong Kong can be very expensive, and you often get a smaller place for more money. But the infrastructure and transportation in Hong Kong is of the highest standard, which makes day-to-day life much easier. Hong Kong is famed for being one of the world's shopping capitals — spend your weekends buying clothes, shoes, gadgets, and food that are completely tax-free. Hong Kong's integration with China has seen its economy recover quickly from the global economic crisis and it is now made up of a large international community, with lots of young, ambitious people making their mark on the city. Hong Kong is a place where almost anything is possible.
