British culture shaped every aspect of Hong Kong. Even though Britain gave Hong Kong back to China 24 years ago, today when you walk around the city you can see British fingerprints everywhere.
From statues of Queen Victoria to double-decker buses, British culture and lifestyle are baked into the culture at every turn. Both the history and the current-day British influence are visually fascinating stories and in this episode, I show it all.
Exploring Britain’s imperial history, which includes opioid trade, discrimination and a divided city, and then showing the effects of that history, resulting in a city that is unlike any I’ve visited.
This episode was produced and released in 2018.
