About the Author:

Christopher Dillon is an award-winning writer and entrepreneur based in Hong Kong. In 2002, he bought and renovated a floor in an office building in Hong Kong’s Central business district. Since then, he has purchased and refurbished a luxury apartment on the west side of Hong Kong Island and transformed a derelict steam laundry into a multimedia studio. He began investing in Tokyo real estate in 2010. That experience inspired four books: Landed: The expatriate's guide to buying and renovating property in Hong Kong (2008); Landed: The guide to buying property in Japan (2010); Landed China (2013); and Landed Global (2014), which includes case studies and data from more than 110 countries and territories. In 2015, he released an expanded and revised edition of the Hong Kong book under the title Landed Hong Kong. A native of Canada, Chris Dillon lived in Tokyo from 1989 to 1992. He appears regularly in the international media, as both a contributor and a guest.
