China & Hong Kong Internet restrictions

I know China has their "great firewall" and blocks access to many popular websites, as well as randomly blocking other IP's. From what I understand, these restrictions do not apply to Hong Kong, which doesn't have any internet traffic restrictions.

Does anyone know if China blocks access to sites/IP's in Hong Kong, or allows all traffic/access to and from HK? or is Hong Kong sort of a neutral territory?

If HK is a neutral territory and China allows all internet traffic in and out of there, then i'll set up some middle-man servers there.

if you can provide any links/articles to back this up, it would help.

Hello tabush, I was living in China. I don't think host your server in HongKong can guarantee the IP won't be blocked from mainland China. China does block access to site/IPs in HONG KONG.

If you want host your server in China, you need register your information to goverment first.  If they think your server is hosting any unsuitable content, they can ask you remove it. If you don't follow, they can order the host service provider block it.

China government does block traffic within the country in need.
