Hong Kong in Pictures – My Personal Highlights Collected over the Past Decade

Hong Kong offers endless photo opportunities. I could spend weeks just walking around and capture what is going on in this bustling mega city. Over the years, I have collected my favourite Hong Kong pictures which I would like to share with you. I am sure they will make you want to come and visit Fragrant Harbour!

  • Beautiful Hong Kong! I’ve only been there on a 24h layover, but there’s so much more to discover and enjoy. What I missed out on most were the perfectly symmetrical, colorful block residential buildings, which you captured perfectly. Can’t wait to go back!
