On behalf of the ICIP 2010 Organizing Committee, I extend to you a heartfelt welcome to Hong Kong. This is a unique city where the eastern and western cultures meet. If it were square-shaped, the size of Hong Kong would be no more that 20×20 square miles. Despite its small area, Hong Kong is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Asia. In 2008, a total of 29.5 million people visited Hong Kong, a 4.7% increase since the year 2007. Hong Kong, better known as Pearl of the Orient, is famous for its spectacular harbour views. September is one of the best times to visit Hong Kong. It is very pleasant and there is plenty of sunshine. The average temperature is 23°C and the average humidity is 84%. There could be typhoons during September. However the chance of typhoon hitting is less at the end of September.
