We are excited to announce that this year’s study trip will go to Hong Kong!
We depart at the 1 st of May and return on the 10 th of May, giving you eight nights to explore this world city and have a great time with your fellow UPTE students!
Hong Kong is regarded as one of the most important financial cities in the world, after New York and London. Hence, the term Nylonkong is frequently used to express the financial relation between these cities. Besides being an important financial city, Hong Kong is also an interesting city for who are interested in urban economics, ports, transport and logistics. The city has the fourth largest container port and handled more than 22 million TEU in 2014. This makes the city a very important link in many supply chains. Furthermore, Hong Kong faces many urban and mobility challenges due to its high density. These challenges have resulted in the famous skyline and one of the most efficient transport systems on earth. Moreover, the culture of the city is regarded as open due to the many internationals. Also Hong Kong is a great city to experience the links between the Asian and European culture as this part of China is significantly influenced by the western culture while it was an UK colony till 1997. During the trip we will visit (renowned) sights to discover this amazing culture. Of course we will have a lot of fun too!
