Living in Hong Kong


Welcome to Hong Kong - A wonderful place to live!

Hong Kong is a land of towering skyscrapers and a cultural hub where East meets West. Efficient infrastructure, advanced transportation, and healthcare systems makes Hong Kong an ideal city to work in.

Transportation

Hong Kong offers diverse options of public transport such as Mass Transit Railways (MTR), buses, taxis, minibuses, ferries, and trams, making the city easy to navigate. With the Octopus card, you can easily get to where you want, so owning a private vehicle is not necessary.

Healthcare

Hong Kong has a highly developed healthcare system, which consists of public and private hospitals, general outpatient and specialist clinics, and Chinese medicine practics. ICS also provides group medical and dental insurance to our employees and their dependents.

Geography & Climate

Hong Kong is one of the Speical Administrative Regions of Mainland China. The main districts are: Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, the New Territories and outlying islands such as Lantau Island and Lamma Island. Hong Kong is the “Asia’s World City” and traveling throughout Asia, Oceania and Europe is incredibly convenient. Hong Kong's climate is subtropical, yet seasonal: spring is temperate with occasional showers and summer is hot, humid and rainy; temperature is lower in fall, when the weather becomes cooler and dry.

As per Census 2016, Hong Kong's population is just over 7 million people. About 92% of Hong Kong's population is of Chinese descent, the majority being permanent residence, while others are Americans, Canadians, British, Filipinos, Indonesians, Japanese and more. Over 88% of the population speaks native Cantonese, while about 4.3% speaks English and 1.9% speaks Manadarin.

Language

Cantonese is Hong Kong's daily language, but English and Mandarin is widely spoken throughout the city. Road signs and signages in Hong Kong are mostly bilingual.

Shopping and Eating

Hong Kong is often described as a place where East meets West with a mix of traditional Chinese shops and mega malls with Western stores. Shopping is a favorite past time in Hong Kong and can be done everywhere from train stations to malls, night markets to an endless additional variety of other types of stores. Small Cantonese style quick-eat restaurants and American sit down restaurants are interspersed throughout the city. While different varieties of Chinese selections are easiest to find and the least expensive, there are also many European, American, Japanese, Korean food choices, just to name a few.

Sights to See

Hong Kong has plenty of sights to see! Lan Kwai Fong, Tsim Sha Tsui and Wan Chai are all popular destinations, packed with both tourists and locals. And, on a clear day, the Peak provides a great view of the Hong Kong city skyline. The Hong Kong government also supports the arts and promotes cultural heritage with the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, just to name a select few.
