comment Which Chinese dialect is it rewarding to learn?
Learning Mandarin while living in HK is about useless as A/ most natives have only a passing knowledge of it; B/ the Cantonese accent makes it hard to understand when they speak Mandarin; C/ You won't be able to practice on a daily basis in the city. Then again, if you learn Canto, you won't be able to practice much either, as locals refuse to speak Cantonese with non-natives.

comment Which Chinese dialect is it rewarding to learn?
Cantonese has 6 tones. I don't know where you get the "majority of residents speak English" part but it's widely optimistic. English fluency is probably at its lowest. It's definitely much worse today than 20 years ago.
