Course Description

Discover Hong Kong, its people, culture and customs.

As a melting pot of Eastern and Western characteristics, Hong Kong has experienced a unique history from Chinese immigration to colonization by the British to the subsequent transformation into a Special Administration Region of China.

We’ll go on a journey around Hong Kong, using 3D virtual reality, exploring its history, culture and some of its distinguished traditions.
