A day in Hong Kong is better than no day in Hong Kong – Taking a stopover between flights is a good way to get a bonus trip within a trip. Hong kong is one of those places where I’ll build in a stop if I have the time. I figure that a day in Hong Kong is better than no day in Hong Kong.

Books About Hong Kong

Ghetto at the Center of the World: Chungking Mansions, Hong KongGhetto at the Center of the World: Chungking Mansions by Gordon Mathews.

There’s nowhere quite like Chungking Mansions, a dilapidated seventeen-story commercial and residential structure in the heart of Hong Kong’s tourist district. It’s home to Pakistani phone stall operators, Chinese guesthouse workers, Nepalese heroin addicts, Indonesian sex workers, and traders and asylum seekers from all over Asia and Africa. It’s possibly the most globalized spot on the planet.

Hong Kong skyline at night - Hong Kong

Hong Kong has one of the most impressive city skylines in the world. At night the skyline is lit up with A Symphony of Lights, a light show synchronized to cheesy music. It’s an interesting to see once, but really, the skyline needs no enhancement.

    Im going to have to get over there at some point … looks awesome

  2.  Love the capture with the right timing for the colored light reflections of the city lights.

  3. I think HK has my favorite skyline in the world. AWESOME shot!!!

  4. I’m not a big fan of cities, but there is no denying that the view of those high rise buildings is pretty breath taking!

  5. Spectacular! I was recently in Singapore, which also has a very impressive city skyline – the best I’ve seen so far. But for me you just can’t get better than New York when it comes to skylines – purely because of how iconic it is.

  6. Chris Schwarz says

    Hong Kong blew me away, it was far more impressive than Tokyo.

  7. Without a doubt Hong Kong is my favorite city in the world 🙂

  8. Hong Kong is so astonishing and a place which never ceases to amaze me, James! You have got plenty of info and I believe everyone planning to go there can get all the necessary information just from reading your blog! 🙂
