Hi there, if you’re reading this and are not so sure about the title, you should go on. The following infographic’s produced by the Hong Kong team at HotelClub.com, and was inspired by the tech start-up culture that is currently blossoming in Silicon Harbour.

By comparing four tech cities of China (Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and HK), the author uncovered the potential of Hong Kong in Internet population, access, and censorship. It is shown that 90% of Hong Kong citizens are online, and its neighbor Shenzhen comes the second while Shanghai unexpectedly has the least netizens (66.2%).

For startups and entrepreneurs, one interesting finding is that to register a new business in Hong Kong takes only 2 days, however, it can take 30-60 days in mainland cities. More HK startup scenes are revealed on government support, co-working spaces, and the possible sluggish reasons.

The author ended the infographic with this power saying that,

With its explosive recent growth and rapid development, Hong Kong is the fastest rising tech hub in Asia…, it is poised to become one of the world’s technological leaders.

Let’s take a look.  (Download it here)
