Hong Kong is a place with multiple personalities with (population of 7.5million ), as a result of being Cantonese( Chinese )with a long-time British influence. Hong Kong returned to her motherland in( 1st july, 1997)Today, the former British colony is a major tourism destination for China’s increasingly affluent population. It is also an important hub in the Chinese diaspora with global connections to many of the world’s cities. It is a unique destination that has absorbed people and cultural influences from places as diverse as Vietnam and Vancouver.
The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China is much more than a harbour city. The traveller weary of its crowded streets may be tempted to describe it as “Hong Kongcrete”. Yet, this SAR with its cloudy mountains and rocky islands is mostly a rural landscape. Much of the countryside is classified as Country Park and, although 7 million people are never far away, it is possible to find pockets of wilderness that will reward the more intrepid tourist.
(When you come to Hong Kong, you will be happy to find that HK is a national city, and it has been called The Oriental Pearl, Shopping Heaven. You can not miss the Ocean Park here if you come to HK.)
Hong Kong has a subtropical climate with at least one season to match your comfort zone. Boasting one of the world’s best airports, it is the ideal stopover for those who wish to travel deeper into the Orient.
Welcome to China, I hope you happy to play in Hong Kong, Chinese fans love you, I wish the 16th charity concert success
从短期来看，此次金融危机对中国经济造成了一定的影响，而且有很多是实实在在的损失。美元大幅度贬值，会使我国的外汇储备受到严重的损失，我国外贸出口也会受到很大影响。但从长期和全球角度来看，如果危机最终得以解决，没有引发新的世界大战，相对而言，中国应该会从这次危机收益更多一些，也就是说，在世界经济面前，中国经济的实力和地位将明显加强。转自学易网 与此同时，此次危机将给中国带来许多方向性的迷失。过去的几十年，中国的经济发展，尽管有过这样那样的波折，但总体而言还是非常顺利。因为中国经济明显落后西方，所以跟在别人后面模仿、效仿要比自己开创容易的多，成本小得多， 效率高的多。现在“火车头”坏了，后面的车怎么走？尤其是金融市场的游戏怎么玩？这些都是中国现在和未来将要面对的棘手问题。In the short term, the financial crisis on China's economy to a certain extent, but there is a lot of real loss. A substantial depreciation of the dollar, China's foreign exchange reserves will be severely damage China's exports will be greatly affected. However, the long-term and global perspective, if the crisis is resolved ultimately, lead to a new world war has not, relatively speaking, China will be more income from this crisis, that is to say, in the face of the world economy, China's economy Power and status will significantly strengthen.

Over the past several decades, China's economic development, although there have been all kinds of ups and downs, but overall, very smooth. China's economy because the West has clearly failed, so with others in the back of imitation, than follow their own easy to create, much less cost, more efficient. Now the "locomotive" broken the back of the car away how? Particularly in the financial markets how to play the game? These are all present and future China will have to face the thorny issue.

Protecting traditional Chinese culture is of great importance to China's cultural diversity, economic prosperity, and social development. The government in Guangdong province has made it their mission to protect Chaoju (潮剧), a local form of drama that began in Chaozhou in eastern Guangdong.
In my opinion, specific measures should be taken to protect traditional Chinese culture. To start with, we should make appropriate laws for everyone to follow. Also, we should educate people about the need to protect traditional culture. The more the public knows about it, the more support we can get.
It's time that we start treasuring our own valuable culture.

The development of science and technology has brought about many changes in people's lives.
Modern technology makes life more convenient. Using the Internet is popular nowadays. Years ago, people had to look through a lot of information just to buy what they wanted. It was easy for people to spend too much time doing research and become tired as a result. Now, all you have to do is use the Internet. It's a piece of cake!
With the development of science and technology, including high-speed transportation, video phones, and webcam meetings, the world has become smaller and smaller.
We all hope that modern technology will continue to reach the highest level, because science and technology make life more enjoyable indeed.

I'm glad I received your letter. Thank you for caring about the weather and my health. Now, I'd like to tell you something about smog.
Since winter last year, there has been a lot of smog. It has done great harm to our daily lives. Many traffic accidents happened just because of the heavy smog. Quite a few flights had to be rescheduled, and many people had to go to the doctor because of serious diseases caused by the smog.
People have realized that smog causes great harm, and people all over the country know that protecting the environment is the most important thing to do. The government suggests that people go to work or school on public transportation, such as the bus and the underground. Also we should plant more trees.
As to me, I always go to school by bike or on foot, and I never throw garbage anywhere. In addition, I will tell everyone I meet to protect the environment as much as they can. Would you like to tell me some good ideas? I'm looking forward to your reply.

Dear Mrs. Zhang,
I'm writing to express my sincere gratitude to you. You gave me a hand when it was very necessary.
One month ago, with the College Entrance Examination around the corner, I was nervous and in low spirits. I was afraid of letting my parents down because of my average academic performance. When I was at the point of giving up, you asked me to go to your office. Instead of blaming me, you comforted me and discussed with me my reasons for failing the exam. You managed to help me with my studies and always inspired me. Gradually, I learned how to make my own adjustments. Thanks to you, I stayed calm during the College Entrance Examination.
Mrs. Zhang, I'm extremely grateful for what you have done for me. I will always have hope because of you. I wish you happiness and good health.
I received an urgent call from my aunt. " Turn on the TV. Granny's on the Channel 10 news. " It turned out that Granny had made a sandwich run for her office and was stopped at a red light downtown. She had the window rolled down to enjoy the breeze when a man rushed up to the driver's side window, intending to carjack （劫车）her.
Now, what the would-be carjacker couldn't have known was that this woman simply wasn't " a granny" . This was Nancy Johnson — the same woman who owned and lived on a Texas cattle farm, drove her own tractors, and dug her own post holes to lay fence. The week before, she had shot a rattlesnake and chopped off its head with a shovel . She was the proud owner of the new minivan （小型货车）she was driving. In other words, she was not your normal kind of granny.
The carjacker leaned into the open window, one hand stuffed in his pocket, and said, " Get out of this car. I have a gun, and I will shoot you.” A statement like that would have terrified anyone else. Instead, Granny saw it as a challenge." If you really had a gun in your pocket, you would've pulled it out and led with that first," she shouted at him, apparently unworried.
She was right. The criminal didn't have a gun. He instead reached into the window, grabbed her, and tried to pull her out of the van. He pulled open the door, wildly catching Granny's arms. Granny leaned her shoulder inside to press the horn （喇叭) and started yelling to make people around notice what was happening. With the door now open, she held tight the steering wheel with one arm and started kicking the man anywhere her foot could make contact. This tall woman had quite a reach.
