Hong Kong is a modern Chinese city with multi-Asian and Western elements. It is the biggest and most important financial centre in the region and is still the city of choice for most international businesses.
It is renowned for its work-hard, play-hard culture and the bars and numerous restaurants are generally full seven days a week and stay open very late. However there is more to Hong Kong than this. There are beautiful beaches at Sai Kung and fantastic walking in the New Territories. Stanley and Repulse Bay provide a haven from the bustle of Central Hong Kong and there are clubs and leisure facilities that provide opportunities for participation in a wide range of sports and activities. You are also well placed to travel throughout Asia and Australasia and to explore the different cultures at your doorstep.
Lawyers in Hong Kong enjoy a good level of income and a comfortable lifestyle.
