AbstractThe study of acculturation has been well-developed in western countries as evinced by the large volume of extensive literature available. However, in reviewing the literature on acculturation studies, it is evident that there is a dearth of information pertaining to the acculturation and adaptation experiences of South Asians in Hong Kong. Cross-cultural studies have increasingly been interested in investigating what happen to people who have grown up in one culture when they move to another cultural environment. Although there are a substantial numbers of South Asian immigrants in Hong Kong, very little is known about their experiences of acculturation and adaptation, the challenges and opportunities they encounter. To better understand their experiences, there is a a need to conduct a systematic and comprehensive study. This paper presents an outline and conceptual framework within which to investigate and examine the experiences of acculturation and adaptation of South Asian immigrants in Hong Kong
