For those who do not know: Hong Kong used to be under British control. As a result, HongKong is in many ways different than the rest of mainland China: for example, Hong Kong has both a different internet and telephone country code from the rest of mainland China. It used to be (and perhaps still is) that the telephone connectivity between the US and Hong Kong (pick-up and call) was way better than between the US and the rest of mainland China (call an operator who calls back when the connection is made). Most things are written in both English and Chinese in Hong Kong, but only Chinese in the rest of mainland China.
