Btw, may I ask, why would you take a flight to London in order to get to HK? There should be more than enough direct flights from Frankfurt itself.
Thanks.

It was the cheapest flight at that moment. I paid only 470€ for my flight with British Airways. Most of my flights are not direct.


@all thank you very much

Next target was the One Island East.

Some areas in Hong Kong are really relaxed.


I found a dragon boat contest.
















On my way to One Island East


Time to eat.




The nice skyscraper


I also asked there if i could go to the top to take pictures.

OIE




On my way to the harbour.

On my third day i visited Shenzhen.

The place you see first after you passed the border.


My first target was the observation deck of the Shun Hing Sqare.




My favorite skyscraper in Shenzhen


















One of the tallest towers in the world. The observation deck is around 300m above ground.

Thanks.
I hope you don`t mind if i upload a lot of Shenzhen pics from that day, as i have been only for one day in that city, during the entire trip.

Back on the ground.








Next target was the SEG Plaza. A 350m tall skyscraper. I hoped that this building had an observation deck, but it didn`t have one.










The area around the tower was full of shops and people.








I travelled further to the west. This is the CBD of Shenzhen. The skyscrapers there are very modern and nice looking. Not far away is a 650m tall skyscraper u/c.

But it was worth.














On my way down.






The modern subway of Shenzhen.

The last pics from Shenzhen.
































More fans of my pics. Chinese kids are not shy and can speak more English some English sentence.




Back on the ground.


On my way back to the border.


Bye bye Shenzhen.


Back in Hong Kong.

Oh ... you didn't take the Lok Ma Chau border crossing? It should be faster coming in from Futian and connects to East Rail

I took the one that is in a walking distance to the Shun Hing Square.


HD: Canīt tell. My first trip was in 2004. In that 5 years a lot has changed.

Back in Hong Kong


I planned to visit the Great Buddha and this is the easiest way to get there.






I am afraid of height and that really scared me.






The airport in the distance




The amount of landslides in HK surprised me.


Coming closer


They build a small village between the station and Great Buddha.








Last time i didn`t walked to the top of the mountain. Now i did.
They way to the top.




Some hundret meters higher.


Coming closer to the top.


900m above sealevel.
