Britain should have never given it back to China.
 Quoting: jt210

The Brit had no choice because 99-year lease was up.China didn't want to renew the lease. China told the Brit that they would march to Hong Kong if the Brit didn't hand Hong Kong to China.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77316608

Basically right, a coupole minor corrections.

The lease was 150 years on Kowloon, 1847 - 1997. It was handed back on schedule. The Chinese troops actually did march into Kowloon a week or two ahead of the handover.

The Island (and all the rest of the islands there, which are many, including Lantau where the airport now is) was surrendered back because it had been captured by the Brits rather than leased. But they were indefensible anyway. China had become a superior military force to Britain.
