My new trip to Hong Kong (Guangzhou, Macao and Shenzhen)

I was from October 1st to October the 15th in
Hong Kong.


During my stay, i visited
Shenzhen


Macao


and i stayed for 3 days in
Guangzhou


I will start with my flight. Britsh Airways flew at first from Frankfurt to London.
This is London from the plane




From London it was a 12hours flight to Hong Kong.
Somewhere in China








Close to Guangzhou




And Guangzhou itself


This is Macao




Reaching Hong Kong






Nina Tower






It was in the evening when i arrived at my hotel. I decided to go to the harbour and watch the symphony of ligt. Sorry for the poor quality. I was to tired for my tripod.






Best skyline at night.












I haven`t taken any pics from the Symphony of Light itself. I just enjoyed the show. After the show i walked to the ICC.




That`s it for the first day. I will try to upload every or every second day some pics.

Yes you can have

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.


On my way to the harbour




Bruce Lee


Some impressions in the morning

That`s what i have seen on my way to the Peak Tram.








The Peak Tram station


The path around the mountain


The biggest spider i have seen outside a zoo.


And the best view over Hong Kong

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.

Yes. It`s not even difficult.

The second day.

Hong Kong in the morning.




On my way to the ICC










It`s like a crater.












I travelled from the ICC to the Nina Tower.
The area around the Nina Tower






I kindly asked if i could go up and take some pictures.
The answer was yes






















Back on the ground again






A nice small park not far away.
