next page!

Kowloon (meaning 9 dragons in Cantonese), Nathan Street



a bit touristy hassle


but a great place to visit


crowded, loud, high, decrepit buildings from the 1960s


this is how I always imagined Hongkong to be


not as chic as Victoria Island...


but who cares?

Mong Kok - wellknown for its advertising and neon lights. You have certainly seen it before.

Very nice pics. Your commentary is fun to read too. You seem to know China very well

HSBD tower. Erected in 1985 and "only" 180 meters high, it is one of the finest examples of modern architecture

...Tian Tan buddha on Lantau island

lookout


facts: 8 mio. Euro, 270 steps to climb, finished in 1993


the mountain in the backgorund is about 900 meters high, 2nd highest in HK


although the busy airport is located on Lantau island


it's a relaxed and scenic spot
