Great change. Makati is still mid-rise during that time.

After the ICC, that's it. HK doesn't need a Burj Dubai in its skyline

There are volcanoes in China, such as Changbai Mountain in the northeast.

I didn't realized that. The chain of volcanos I know in the north east are those in Russia.

Anyway, last Sat night, I grabbed two cans of aerosol, went to North Point and wala

There are plenty of volcanoes in China, and it's not surprising. There are plenty of mountain ranges in the west and northeast.

Didn't realized the presence of volcanoes in the mainland.

Anyway, with HK's skyline. Its nice to see aerials but it would also be cool to see the other parts of the city.

There's a nice book on HK aerials. Forgot the name its either Above Hong Kong or Over Hong Kong

There are a number of books devoted to Hong Kong aerials. The government actually has published one, with both map and satellite / aerial photos. It's a new publication that came out very recently.

There are quite a few out there, and are readily available in bookstores. The government one is harder to find, so tourists don't tend to know about it.

I had to go to some government office place to buy it. I only knew about the book cuz my dad got a 1996 edition one.

I thought 11 years was about time to update.
