Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated areas in the world, with an overall density of some 6,300 people per square kilometre.
Despite the population density, Hong Kong is reported to be one of the greenest cities in Asia, with the majority of people living in apartments in high-rise buildings, and most land reserved for open spaces, country parks, and woodland.
Albeit the sovereignty of Hong Kong has been transfered to the PRC by the United Kingdom in 1997, English is still one of the official languages of the Hong Kong, and its official status is enshrined in the Basic Law.
