+ Malaysia

Sweden shifted somewhere in the sixties, one of the most recent shifts in Europe. The UK and Ireland are now the sole European countries that drive on the left.

Interesting though, that China drives on the right, like us, and unlike other road pioneering countries in that region.

I know it's not. Hence why its not gathered with the UK, but I just combined them so I didnt have to type out 'isle of' twice as I forgot to include Wight in the UK

Does Hong-Kong still drive on the left since the UK returned it to China in 1997?

Yes, as far as I know, Hong Kong still drives on the left. Don't know about Macao though.

Traffic in Macao circulates on the left too and has to change over when crossing to the mainland.

Yeah, if you look at an aerial image of a China-Macau border crossing, you can see the mechanism they use to switch the traffic.
