Hong Kong

Hong Kong was a city on Earth. The Thirteenth Doctor described it as the Gateway between East and West. (COMIC: The White Dragon)

Geography[edit | edit source]

Hong Kong was by the coast, and had a significant harbour. Off one section of the coast was Aberdeen, the floating village, and across the sea from Hong Kong was Guangli Bay. Within Hong Kong was the Walled City of Kowloon. At one point it was a slum, but by the mid-1970s it was one of the more upmarket neighbourhoods with over twenty thousand people living there.

In the 1820s, the samurai Casper Knox met with the chief superintendent of trade in Hong Kong in negotiating a deal between the British and his lord Takagi Mamoru, who would send a cargo of modern weapons to Edo as a gift to the Emperor Tokugawa Ienari on behalf of the superintendent.
