Hong Kong, located on the coast of China at the Pearl River Delta and South China Sea, was originally a fishing village. It became a colony of the British Empire after the First Opium War in the 1800s. Now one of two special administrative regions of the People's Republic of China and a leading international financial center, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated cities of the world.
