Jan 03, 2017 – [Tuesday] Black & White: Hong Kong from Hopewell

Hong Kong, China, taken on December 31, 2016

Hong Kong is no doubt the most glamorous metropolis that I had been to and its night scene is stunning. I had wanted to go to the Peak to have a panoramic view from a high place, but then I discovered the Hopewell Centre, from which you could take the sightseeing elevator from the 17th to the 56th floor…for free! From the transparent glass elevator, you ascend through the countless high-rise buildings in the Wan Chai area, feeling like you are excelling above all. The view of the city centre was magnificent, especially during the night! Definitely not for the height-fearing and faint-hearted though…! (See the original photo in colour.)

Nov 08, 2016 – [Tuesday] Black & White: Signs in Hong Kong

Hong Kong, China, taken on April 3, 2015

Typical streets in Hong Kong are lined with signs of all sorts, and it’s quite dazzling during the night. This is one of the quieter streets and at 11pm, the crowds have mostly disappeared, but you bet that the restaurants are still open for a night snack! (See the original photo in colour.)

Dec 23, 2015 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Taking off

Hong Kong, China, taken on December 22, 2015

Right before taking off from Hong Kong to Siem Reap yesterday, the plane stopped at the perfect spot for me to witness the opening of the sky to let the sun out. The gigantic rays illuminated the layered mountains, and if you look carefully, you could even see the cable cars of Ngong Ping 360 on the right!

Nov 18, 2015 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Hong Kong from the air

Hong Kong, China, taken on August 15, 2010

One of my favourite photos taken from the air is this one as we were approaching Hong Kong. I don’t know what part of Hong Kong this is (or if it’s Hong Kong at all), but I loved the complement of the typical tall buildings in the urban aread with the big hills/mountains right in the middle. The whole scene almost looks like a miniature model of a city!

I think I should be allowed to post the obligatory I’ve-been-to-Hong-Kong-and-seen-the-impressive-skyline-by-night-and-therefore-took-a-nice-photo-of-it photo, even though everyone else who’s been to Victoria Harbour at night has probably taken the exact same photo. C’mon, it’s pretty, and you know I can’t resist night lights 😉
