Hong Kong is an excellent place to choose if you are thinking about teaching abroad for a year or so. It is no longer as expensive to live there as it once was and teachers are very sought after and not just in the English as a Foreign Language sector. There are many different ways of getting a teaching job in Hong Kong, either through an agency or directly from an advertisement put out by the school. It isn't too hard to get somewhere to live, but before making any decisions it is important to calculate your take home wage, particularly if you are hourly paid. Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world and this is probably the picture that most people have of it. Since 1997 when Hong Kong was handed back to the Chinese by the British Government it has had a bit of a rollercoaster ride, with problems as diverse as the SARS epidemic and the knock on of the world financial crisis making quite a dent in its population as people left there for mainland China or other areas. However, it has regained a lot of its stability and it has to be said that Hong Kong remains one of the 'must see' places on most peoples' list. It truly is a place where East meets West, with skyscrapers overlooking waterways full of small boats unchanged in design for hundreds of years and top level financial wheeling and dealing taking place under a spinning mirror to deflect evil influences. Despite its small size and relatively large population, Hong Kong still manages to squeeze in lots of sporting venues and it doesn't really matter what sport you follow, there will be some represented in Hong Kong. With an amazing length of coastline due to the meandering edge of the city, there are many beaches and if you like to swim you will find the waters of the South China Sea always warm and welcoming. The weather in Hong Kong is mild as far as temperatures go, with only a twenty degree swing from hottest to coldest, but the winds can be fierce and typhoons in the summer can result in structural damage, floods and landslides. Like most places in an area of extreme weather the city usually copes with a business as usual air, as far as possible when disaster strikes. Like most Asian cities, Hong Kong is pretty much twenty four hour and the food is spectacular. It is said that nothing is wasted from any animal in the cuisine here, with a pig being used entire, down to and including its squeak! If squeaks are as delicious as the food in Hong Kong, then most people would agree that they don't mind that at all. It is possible to eat European food of course, but it is much cheaper and also much more delicious to eat the local food. The same goes for clothes, with handmade items cheaper than off the peg elsewhere.
