Harmony and harmony between China and the west: a taste of Hong Kong's four seasons

What, you think Hong Kong is a "cultural desert"?Oh no, if I'm interested, I can talk a little bit about it.If there is still time, then we can sit down and brew a pot of daffodils, slowly spreading out the wonderful cultural events that you may encounter in the course of the year.
