Why Study in Hong Kong?
As Asia is growing fast and rising in importance in the global market, the role of Hong Kong as Asia’s hub becomes more significant. Hong Kong provides one of the world’s biggest financial hubs for business, and it is a gateway not only to China, but also to other Asian cities. According to the Globalization Index, Hong Kong is also one of the most culturally integrated city, having both Eastern and Western perspectives. Not only is it a vibrant city, but Hong Kong is also safe with a very low crime rate so it is a perfect place for students to study.

Students who are studying in Hong Kong have an exciting mix of activities to choose from. There are many colorful Chinese festivals that have a long history of 5,000 years celebrated in Hong Kong. Those festivals include Chinese New Year with lion dances and fireworks, Dragon Boat Festival with races and rice dumplings, and Mid-Autumn Festival with moon cakes and lanterns. Those traditional events are very exciting so students in Hong Kong should go and explore.
