|Short name||HONG KONG|
|Language||Chinese (zh), English (en)|
In 1900, Hong Kong proper (the island and Kowloon) was a British crown colony, and the British also had a 99-year lease on the New Territories. The Japanese occupied the territory during World War II. On 1984-12-19, the British and Chinese governments agreed that Hong Kong would become a Special Administrative Region of China on 1997-07-01, and so it did.
Chinese xiang: perfume, gang: port (i.e. the port of perfumes)
Hong Kong is divided into eighteen districts. The districts in New Territories are rural districts; the others are urban.
