The Asian headquarters of Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation, also known as HSBC is located in Central, Hong Kong island. Traveling to HSBC from our dorm took approximately an hour via MTR. (HK’s subway system) The HSBC building actually does not have a fourth floor because the number four in Cantonese 四 sounds like death 死. Our tour guides were very helpful!
On Monday, my fellow contestants and I visited the headquarters of Cathay Pacific Airlines located in Cathay City, Hong Kong. To my surprise, I learned that initially based in Shanghai, the airline was founded by an American Roy Farrell and Australian Sydney Kantzow in 1946.
