Here are photos from my Christmas adventure to Hong Kong. I had been there several times on business but never managed to properly explore the city. On this trip, I soaked up the culture and magistery of the city.
Visiting various temples throughout the city was a humbling experience – an oasis of peace amongst the highrises of the busy city.
On a Saturday morning, walking through the city, I came across this group of students in the middle of their stretching routine. I only managed to get this one photo before I was asked to not take any more.
I wasn’t going to leave Hong Kong without visiting one of my childhood heroes, Bruce Lee. His statue was on Hong Kong’s Promenade, at the Avenue of Stars. Unfortunately, during my visit, his statue was covered and the area was being renovated – Bummer. But on my way there I came across a wedding party and caught this great photo.
That morning, I set out with my camera for a solo walk through the industrial supplies region of Canton Street. This was my favorite shoot of my entire vacation. Each storefront showcased a unique character and specialty. I even managed to pick up a few things at a fraction of the cost in Europe.
One of the cool aspects of Hong Kong is watching the locals relax after work. In many areas of the city, you see cardboard boxes laid out on the sidewalks, with people eating, drinking, and socializing. I caught this girl amusing herself while waiting for her parents.
Capping off the trip was dinner at the Jumbo Restaurant, considered the “World’s largest floating restaurant”. Several Jackie Chan movies were filmed there. The restaurant is on the expensive side but I would definitely recommend at least one visit to experience its grandiose atmosphere.

Hi Gaby, This is Peter Kende, the son of Elemer who was your great uncle who moved to Australia and I have been following your photography site when it somehow came up on FB (I think). This email just came through and I see you were in HK and China. We met you in Kocise with Eva who is my first cousin. Jenny and I live in HK so if you come through Asia again it would be really lovely to catch up with you.
To see HK through locals is another insight which I am sure you would enjoy. I do love your photography, especially the Black and Whites.
Thanks, Peter for your kind words. I hope to return to HK in the future. I loved it and will certainly reach out to you if I manage to make it over there again someday. I vividly remember seeing you and your family in Kosice. It was a historic event for all of us who had the privilege and opportunity to be in the same room together.
