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 onto 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 a visit to experience its grandiose atmosphere.
