Both Hong Kong and Shenzhen look incredible! I think Shenzhen and Macau (and perhaps Guangzhou) are must visits when coming to Hong Kong.

You shouldn`t miss one of those cities.


Reaching the top.


Would be interesting to know which parts of HK you can see on clear days


You can see the airport in the distance


















At the beginning it was a mid air battle. On the ground one of the monsters chopped off tthe head of the other thing. >_<




Going down again






Some cows near the great buddha.


No idea what that is


I walked the entire way down to the satelite city near the airport.




Around 5 older women with professional DSLR cameras took pictures at that spot, too.




Back in the city i met a SSC forumer.






I bought new shoes.

It`s time for Macao. It`s a must visit city for all people staying in HK.


On my way.




First impression of Macao.


My boat leaving again.


Some areas of Macao are full of casinos. It`s a bigger gambling citty then Las Vegas.




Some casinos are really beautiful


I took the pics on my way to the Macao tower.


A nice casino.




Some of them are not that beautiful. I think this building has the highest floor in Macao.

On the next day i travelled to Guangzhou.

Still in Hong Kong


Shenzhen


The suburbs of Shenzhen


The following pics show the area between Shenzhen and Guangzhou.










I paid the same price for my hotel in Hong Kong and Guangzhou.

For comparison: my hotel room in Hong Kong


My hotel room in Guangzhou.


My hotel from outside


I stayed very close to the train station of Guangzhou.
The area around my hotel.














The biggest disappointment was that the CITIC Tower don`t have an observation deck

Good morning Guangzhou. The sun is shining and it`s 27°C outside. The day can start


At first i wanted to visit the Guangzhou TV tower. This tower is really beautiful.


The area behind the tower


An older version


Too bad it was not completed when i visited.


The area close to the tower.




It will be one of the most impressive skylines in the world in 5 years.




On that day i visited the old core of Guangzhou. I find that city much more pleasent to walk around then Beijing or Shenzhen.



The old TV tower.






There is a real big and beautiful park in the city.

Yep, Guangzhou is one of my favorite cities in mainland China as well.

Shenzhen's great (I live there currently), but a word of advice for anyone going there - the best parts of the city are the older "villages" with the handshake buildings. I suppose because Shenzhen never had access to the same level of government financing that comparably wealthy cities like Beijing and Shanghai had, the government has only been able to get the clout to demolish a handful of those villages.

So man, are those areas vibrant. I have never, ever, seen places with the same energy as some of those places - and I lived in Hong Kong for a while. I mean, even the alleys are packed with life. And while the old neighborhoods in Shanghai and Beijing are either demolished, slummy, or preserved in lacquer for tourists, the old neighborhoods in Futian are flourishing. They are endlessly fascinating mazes of restaurants (of all price ranges), shops, massage parlors, street food, hair salons, whorehouses, and groceries. They are vibrant and upwardly mobile - the streets seem to grow richer by the day.

The next time you go, stroll around Shuiwei (水围村) or Xiasha (下沙村) - both in Futian. They're incredible, and some of my favorite places in Asia, period.

wonderful photos!

It seems as soon as you cross the border into Shenzhen, it looks completely different!

Amazing how just a short walk across the line and your immersed in a completely different atmosphere.
