Welcome to Hong Kong, China! Since July 1, 1997 Hong Kong is part of China, before that it was a British colony. I am so excited to be here in China for the first time and to be able to experience one of the world’s most spectacular cities. Hong Kong is very vivid and vibrant with a visual feast of culture.
Hong Kong is a modern metropolis providing amazing panoramic skyline views. One of the best places to overlook the city is from Victoria Peak, or as the local call it simply “the Peak”. Here the view is absolutely breathtaking. Every once in a while you will stumble across something that will remind you that you are in China.
When locals are looking for a place to relax, they head out to Hong Kong’s busiest beach. Here is a capture of the beautiful Repulse Bay. The area has many high-end boutiques and unusual modern architecture.
Hong Kong is over populated and most people live on top of each other. Over seven million people live in this city that is smaller than New York City. Many of the tall buildings are apartment complexes creating a canyon-like feel to the city. Even the roads are stacked atop one another to handle the large volume of people and cars.
There is so much to see in the city of Hong Kong. This is a city I must come back to visit!
