Discover Hong Kong, its people, culture and customs.
As a melting pot of Eastern and Western characteristics, Hong Kong has experienced a unique history from Chinese immigration to colonization by the British to the subsequent transformation into a Special Administration Region of China.
We’ll go on a journey around Hong Kong, using 3D virtual reality, exploring its history, culture and some of its distinguished traditions.
East-meets-West style can be seen in every aspect of the city including architecture, traditions and cuisine - this offers unique experiences and challenges for those living and working there.
No prior knowledge is necessary. We welcome anyone interested in:
- culture, history, religion, and society,
- a new immersive learning experience (VR), and
- Hong Kong and China.
You can take part in this course without needing special equipment. However, to get the best experience we will encourage you to try the low-cost personal virtual reality device called Google Cardboard, in combination with your smartphone.
Don’t worry - we will explain how to do this.
