Major markets in Asia have seen turbulence in recent weeks after surging earlier this year — among them is Hong Kong.

The Hang Seng index (HSI) slipped into correction territory last week, falling more than 10% from its 52-week high in February. Still, the index gained 4.21% in the first quarter.

CNBC took a look at the stocks with the biggest gains on the Hang Seng this year — none of them are technology names, and one is up more than 30%.

Here are the top five constituents of the Hang Seng index as of Wednesday's market close, according to data provider Refinitiv Eikon.
