2017-01-31 STREET LIFE IN HONG KONG

By | 2017-01-31T19:13:00+00:00 January 31st, 2017|Hong Kong|

If New York ist the “city which never sleeps”, the same is true for Hong Kong. Streets are very crowded, full of life, full of impressions on every corner, a steady flow of people which never stops. A real metropolis … here one typical scene of the streets, shot with a wide angle lens.

Often in Hong Kong sights, subway stations, observation points, visitor bridges end in a shopping mall, so there’s no excuse that time was tight and you couldn’t bring home some presents :-).

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:22+00:00 November 2nd, 2016|Hong Kong|

Many cities have their trademarks which are typical and you can only find there, one of those trademarks are the tram buses of Hong Kong. They are slim and have a first floor, inside its is relatively tight if you want to go upstairs …

2016-10-30 LAST HURDLE TO REACH VICTORIA PEAK

When you have reached that place, you are at the last hurdle to reach Victoria Peak in Hong Kong. Here the waiting before and the drive with the Peak Tram are over, you passed the walk through the souvenir shops and soon you are before the two big front doors to reach the observation deck.

2016-10-10 ESCALATOR IN MACAU

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:22+00:00 October 10th, 2016|Hong Kong|

One typical style element of the big casinos, whether Macau or Las Vegas, are the big long escalators which brings you to the different floors of the big casino buildings. Often they are built and decorated with brass and glass elements.

2016-10-08 APPLE STORE IN HONG KONG

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:22+00:00 October 8th, 2016|Hong Kong|

I was in Apple stores a dozen times, but if I see one, I alway go in, even if I know that I won’t buy anything. It’s a nice atmosphere, I like looking at the devices, get a taste of the newest iPhones (mine is a 6 plus). Often it’s a reassurance, that my iPhone is good enough and currently there is no need to buy a new one  🙂  Here in Hong Kong the Apples store is in a very prominent place, near the Hong Kong Observation Wheel.

2016-09-13 NIGHTLY WALK IN HONG KONG

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:24+00:00 September 13th, 2016|Hong Kong|

My nightly walking tour started from the Hong Kong Observation wheel, next I went over a bridge near the Apple store and then directly into downtown. From time to time I stopped for taking photos of the city lights  🙂

2016-09-08 CAFE IN MACAU

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:24+00:00 September 8th, 2016|Hong Kong|

In Macau you get some kind of Las Vegas deja-vu, the hotels and interiors look very similar. Macau doesn’t have a real strip, this is one point for Las Vegas and they haven’t as many hotels, but what I could see many are currently under construction.

2016-09-05 BLACK BUILDING IN HONG KONG

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:24+00:00 September 5th, 2016|Hong Kong|

As I booked the hotel room in Hong Kong I added the wish in the comments section, that I want a room on a very high floor. My wish got fulfilled, the room was on the 26th floor with a view around Causeway Bay with dozens of skyscrapers around me  🙂
