"Hong Kong" is not been marked in the zoom level 4 to zoom level 6.

It is abnormal for a well known international metropolis not mark on the map. Whatever Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex, etc will show "Hong Kong" in the corresponding zoom level.

OpenStreetMap is designed and run by volunteers. If you would like to volunteer your time to fixing this issue, you can get involved with the cartography project at https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto .
