Hong Kong was a British territory from the time of the First Opium War in 1842.  When the lease of the territory expired in 1997, Hong Kong was returned to  China, becoming a sem-autonomous region.  Contrary to some fears, the change of sovereignty did little to damage Hong Kong's importance as a world financial  center.  In this video, top contributor Droneland gives us a spectacular drone tour of this magical port city.

Droneland 2018 - The land of gold

Droneland

As of November, 2018, Dubai had 187 buildings which were at least 150 meters (just under 500 ft.) tall.  New York City had considerably more - 267, to be exact.  That's a lot of tall buildings, until you consider that Hong Kong has 353 - a third again more.  It's pretty clear that Hong Kong is the most vertical place on earth in terms of the human-made landscape.  In this rather remarkable video by Droneland, you'll get a top-down look at this tribute to the power of humanity to shape its world.
