Wonderful and delicious!

FREKI Oct 22, 2009 8:07 PM

Great ones mate - looking forward to more :)

Coldrsx Oct 22, 2009 8:18 PM

such a ridiculous expression of urbanity, or lack there of.

TonyAnderson Oct 23, 2009 4:01 AM

unbelievable. That first shot of Hong Kong was ridiculous.

itom 987 Oct 23, 2009 5:20 AM

Awesome tour, I'm looking forward to seeing the rest!

KevinFromTexas Oct 23, 2009 5:34 AM

Great thread. I like the ones with the boat. Such a beautiful city.

Please sir, may I have another?

Yes you can have :D

Here is the first part of the first full day.

Because of the time difference i woke up at 4 o`clock in the morning.
I decided to walk around. If you always wanted to see how a world city like Hong Kong looks at 4 o`clock in the morning, this is the answer. :)

Fantastic photos. The views from Lugard Road are truly unrivalled. I never understood why people even bother to go up the Peak Tower when they have a so much more amazing view just a short walk away.

LAsam Dec 29, 2009 12:50 AM

Wow... awesome stuff here. Thanks!

mongoXZ Dec 29, 2009 5:12 AM

You've inspired me to visit China again!

Those aerials of the rural areas absolutely FLOORED ME!
