Teaching English in Hong Kong

This is an excerpt from the book, The Wealthy English Teacher: Teach, Travel, and Secure Your Financial Future:

Jobs are not that easy to find in Hong Kong, and seem to be filled mostly by PhD holders, or people certified to teach in public schools in their home country. The jobs available to those with only bachelor's degrees seem to be generally limited to kindergartens which can involve long hours. However, if you are lucky enough to get a job in Hong Kong, you will likely enjoy it because the salaries are high and teachers are treated like professionals. There is plenty of Western influence in Hong Kong and thousands of Western expats so that you can buy anything you want, do any activity that you can think of, or get service in English almost everywhere.
