Hong Kong City
Rank: Top 100
Wonder Type: Cultural
Hong Kong is renowned for its deep natural harbour, which provides international cargo ships ready access, and its skyline, with a very high density of skyscrapers; the territory boosts the second largest number of high rises of any city in the world. It has a very high Human Development Index ranking and the world's longest life expectancy. Over 90% of the population makes use of well-developed public transportation. Seasonal air pollution with origins from neighbouring industrial areas of Mainland China, which adopts loose emissions standards, has resulted in a high level of atmospheric particulates.
