Data Location


postcodes/zipcodes not used so this dataset does not apply. https://futurehandling.com/2012/11/12/why-doesnt-hong-kong-have-postal-codes/ This category discriminates on all the countries and territories that do not have postcodes (>60 https://gist.github.com/kennwilson/3902548). China uses one postcode for all of Hong Kong (999077) so sent a FOI request to see if that was listed anywhere on a HKgov website and if could be used as a postcode for HK. This was the response https://accessinfo.hk/en/request/postal_code_information_for_hong
