Hong Kong is often described as a place where "East meets West", reflecting the mix of culture of the Chinese roots of the territory and the influences from its time as a British colony. Hong Kong balances a modernised way of life with traditional Chinese habits.
Concepts are taken very seriously, as Feng Shui experts are often hired in such areas to manage very expensive construction projects. Other objects, such as trigrams are still regularly used to ward off evil spirits and buildings often lack every floor that has the number 4 in it, because this number is associated with death in Cantonese. the fusion of east and west also characterises Hong Kong's cuisine, where dim sum, hot pot, and fast food restaurants coexist with haute cuisine.
