Where is Hong Kong?

A lot of people don't really know where Hong Kong Is on the Map.  Here's the Google Maps answer:

Looking at this map, you can see that Hong Kong is on the southern coast of China roughly half way between Fuzhou and Nanning.  Vietnam is the nearest country to the west and Taiwan is roughly due East.  

It's geo-coordinates are 22°16′42″N 114°09′32″E right on the East edge of the Pearl river estuary.

it is less than 12 hours flight from more than half the world's population and is the hub of some of the busiest shipping lanes in the world.

My answer to the question Where is Hong Kong reads more like this:  Hong Kong is right on the edge of the boundary between the culture of the West and the power of the East.  It is an amazing city of the future full of shopping and hotels and more food than you can imagine.  A place that will be as instrumental to the 21st century as New York or London was to the 20th.

Where is Hong Kong?  Hong Kong is is the very middle of everything!
