city hong kong

Hong Kong is a growing art capital, attracting the attention of big-time galleries like White Cube.

The city also has efficient transportation systems, an unparalleled skyline and an irresistible mix of Eastern and Western influences.

"While all of Asia is 'hot', one thing that sets Hong Kong apart is a relatively diversified economy -- from fashion to finance, manufacturing to real estate, there are many types of people sitting next to you at that shiny deluxe mother-of-pearl bar on Wyndam Street," Hub Culture says.

The Hub Culture ranking is based on economic indicators and outlook, property, employment, nightlife, quality of life and employment.
