Inaccurate statement in a news post

According to Euromonitor, Hong Kong became the most popular travel place in the world, following by London and Singapore. Macau and Shenzhen were also listed as top 10. I should have felt proud of the figure. I did, but when I click on the picture. I just felt a little bit offended. IMG_2948

Euromonitor used wrong country name when illustrating Hong Kong and Macau, obviously. Instead of using China just like they did for Shenzhen, they chose to use “Hong Kong, China” and “Macau”. This is extremely inaccurate.

Let me remind you something that Hong Kong and Macau both return to China in 1997 and 1999 respectively. Please verify your information before you let it out.
