Women in Hong Kong have the longest life expectancy in the world.

Japanese women have fallen behind Hong Kong in global life expectancy rankings for the first time in 25 years.
The expected lifespan for Japanese women dropped from 86.30 years in 2010 to85.90 years in 2011. The official
life expectancy for women in Hong Kong last year was 86.70 years. Japan has topped the women's rankings for
a quarter of a century, with longevity attributed in part to a healthy traditional diet. Another major difference
between Hong Kong and Japan is the attitudetoward a smoking restriction in a public place, including restaurants.
Japan has no rule of completesmoking ban in a restaurant. In contrast, no-smoking law is enforced in all public
places in Hong Kong.
