It's a nice way to know Hong Kong tourism through pictures. The reason is old: a picture is worth a thousand words.
The following Hong Kong pictures were taken by Josh Aggars when he was in Hong Kong. They are about:
- Sunday Stroll Through Hong Kong
- Raised Walkways in Hong Kong
- Hong Kong Buildings
- St. Johns Cathedral of Hong Kong Island
- Hong Kong Park by DoNotLick
- Bali Mynah Bird
- Turtles Sunbathing in Hong Kong Park
- Celebrations of Hong Kong Island
- Mandarin Hotel Hong Kong
- Hong Kong Lightshow
- Po Lin Monastery
- Tian Tan Buddha (Big Buddha) of Hong Kong Island
- Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car Journey
- Hong Kong at Night
The first part of his Hong Kong pictures are here.
Now, Josh's Hong Kong part two:
Day 3: I was advised to check out the celebrations on the Sunday where all the migrant Philappino workers get together to picnic and hang out on their only day off. It looked like quite a social club.
The raised walkways are the best way to get around the city on foot.
St. Johns Cathedral’s European architecture stands out against the high rise backdrop.
The Bali Mynah bird, a native of Indonesia now housed at the Hong Kong Park aviary where Bird flu warnings continue to abound. “Don’t touch the droppings,” was my favourite.
Turtles sunbathing in Hong Kong Park. Looked like they were having a nice restful Sunday.
Across the road from the park I happened upon a ritual dance.
The Mandarin Oriental Hotel had quite the chocolate buffet. Low on funds I had to resist the temptation to indulge my choco habit so instead took some photos.
The Symphony of lights show every night at 8pm is set to music and illuminates the harbour beautifully. Whether my good epileptic friend Jon would agree or not is a moot point. Well worth watching once whilst you’re there.
Day 4: I caught the ferry out to Lantau Island, connected with a bus at the other end and enjoyed a nice drive along the coast for 45 minutes to the Po Lin Monastery.
The long steep staircase up to the Big Buddha which, at 24m tall, is the World’s largest outdoor bronze Buddha (one for my Dad).
I then caught a cable car which takes you from the Monastery right the way past the new airport, or Chek Lap Kok if you prefer, until the Tung Chung underground terminus which links you back onto the Metro to the city.
The Hong Kong container port. Looks like the start of “Saving Private Ryan” to me (well the bit after Tom Hanks and Co. have cleared the beach head).
My last night in Hong Kong so I returned to Hullett House for one more gin and tonic and a cheers to the harbour.
