If and when you find yourself in Kowloon (the island opposite HK island proper), I highly suggest you take the lift up to Sky 100 and take in the views from the ICC building. Spectacular!
Lots of snacks, interesting info on HK customs and point of interest, funny photo opportunities and most importantly, THE VIEW.
Above is a view of Tsim Sha Tsui, one of my stomping grounds for the past several days.
It's so fun to photograph during golden hour.
And here is more of my stomping grounds. I even believe you can see my aunt & uncle's flat somewhere in there...
Or maybe it's this one below...
Either way, as you can see, it's dense. Really dense. If you thought Times Square at 6 pm was busy, think again. This is a whole new level of people traffic.
And I love it.
Not sure if I would like to live this way every day (would depend on a lot of other factors, obviously), but it's fascinating. Everything just moves so quickly and it's so much fun to realize you're a part of it all! Walking fast, weaving through crowds, grabbing snacks, rushing to appointments and swiping your Octopus card again and again on your various adventures? So convenient. So fast!
