Hong Kong photos 35

Mona Pendleton | Friday, July 2, 2010 @ 6:00 AM |

Hi Everyone! In my crafty world, I recently had the honor to be a Guest Designer on the awesome Scrapbook News & Review site. If you would like to see what I created exclusively for the feature, please feel free to click HERE :) On to share a few photos of my sight seeing around Hong Kong :) Here is a look at Hong Kong Island with the Financial District in the background. There are hundreds of massive skyscrapers along the northern border of the island; way too many for me to fit in one photo. It would take 3 or 4 photos may capture it all!This is what a glimpse of the skyline of Hong Kong Island looks like at night. Here is Scott & I on top what is known as the lookout on Victoria Peak on Hong Kong Island. The buildings immediately below are those in the Financial District & across the Victoria Harbor is Kowloon.The photo taken below is of the Financial District but was taken looking out of from a window on the 55th floor of a skyscraper. Try to imagine where 7 million people live in a 426 square mile area then you can get an idea of how many high rises there may be.
The photo below is a fisherman's house & fishing boat. There is a fishing village named Aberdeen located in an inlet of the South China Sea where the sprawling city remains in the backdrop!

We took a tour of Aberdeen on a little boat like the one in the photo below.

The photo below is a floating restaurant that seats up to 1200 people.

Here is a peek down a random street.

I don't want to bore you, so that is all I will share today :) I will be back in a day or two to show you some more of this amazing place! Hope you have a great day & thanks so much for looking :)

Oh my goodness, all those buildings are CRAZY!!! I think my fav is the photo you took at night. It looks amazing with the reflections off the water. Looks like you are having a great time!

How wonderful for you.. I have been to the same exact places. Your pics are so much better than mine (many years ago).. but the food on the floating restaurant was so 'touristy'...don't you think?? Glad you go to visit HK. Hugs, Peggy x

Lisa Hjulberg said...

Wow, Mona, I can't even imagine! I think LA is dense enough with high rises and such, but this is way more intense... it looks like it's perhaps more intense than New York. I confess to being a bit intimidated by big cities, but it Hong Kong must be something to experience. Looks like you're having a wonderful time! Keep the pix coming!

Hugs,
Lisa

Mona, your photos are fantastic! So professional looking! I visited HK about 10 years ago and just remember all the beautiful buildings mixed with many not-so-beautiful ones as well. Is it still that way. I've never seen so many people in one place in my entire life. Fun place to visit, though! TFS!
