The Best Photo Spots in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is such a beautiful place with so much rich culture. It is no wonder that everyone seems to take a ton of pictures while visiting. Here are a few must visit places in Hong Kong where you are sure to take some great photos. Get your camera ready!
Lantau Island has a few great spots for some perfect photos. The Tian Tan Buddha, Po Lin Monastery, Lantau Peak and Ngong Ping Village are all in the same area and can be reached by taking the Ngong Ping Cable Car. The cable car offers some breathtaking views of the area as well.
The Ritz Carlton Hong Kong
The views at the Ritz Carlton Hong Kong are literally to die for, especially from their infinity pool! The Ritz is a five-star hotel, located in the International Commerce Centre, in West Kowloon and I think it offers some of the best views on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong. If you are unable to stay here, I recommend taking in the view from the Ozone Bar. You won't regret your visit.
Choi Hung Estate
So who doesn't like rainbows? The Choi Hung Estate is an apartment complex painted in the most beautiful colors. Take the stairs to the top of the parking lot, and you will find yourself on a basketball court with the most beautiful view of these buildings. This place is popular so you should try to arrive as early as you can.
I feel like the Montane Mansions are what Hong Kong is really about, chaotic beauty. Located in Quarry Bay, these apartment complexes are just so cool looking. If you walk down King's road, you will see a few small staircases which will lead to this view of the buildings. People obviously live in these buildings, so try to be respectful when getting your perfect shot. I heard if you can visit during sunset, the sky looks really cool against the buildings.
Mong Kok has all the bright lights and signage. The hustle and bustle of the streets also make this one of the coolest spots to take a photo. I think it is most beautiful at night, since people are still out and about then. Hong Kong drivers are really aggressive so be careful when trying to get a shot in the street!
Sai Wan Swimming Shed
Only 15 minutes by bus from Kowloon, Sai Wan is a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is the last swimming shed in Hong Kong and locals actually still swim here. Be prepared to wait in line during the day if you want to take a photo on the dock. This place is super popular and I can understand why. A little bit of nature does us well some times!
