On the second chapter of Scouting: Hong Kong, we visited Hong Kong Island where we did some touristy shots.
We started the first leg of the tour by making our way to Victoria Peak. Here’s where you can get the best view of all the skyscrapers available in Hong Kong.
FYI: Hong Kong is divided into 2 parts; Hong Kong & Hong Kong Island. Hong Kong Island is where the financial district’s located. Also, here is where majority of the tycoons & actors live.
Prior to this, Russian daredevils On The Roofs uploaded a video of them hacking one of Hong Kong’s tallest billboard (the overhanging rectangle on the right side of the photo). I was so psyched to have a view of it, but unfortunately, the officials took it down. Damn.
Next off, we had a 5 minute drive to Repulse Bay. Repulse Bay is truly unlike any other.
Somehow, I’m not reminded that I’m in Hong Kong. It’s like I’m in Ibiza or one of Barcelona’s beautiful beaches. (I mean, I’ve never been to one, but this is what I picture them to be.)
Thereafter, we took a $10 ride around Aberdeen fishing village.
Apparently, Aberdeen fishing village completely transformed from a humble fishing village to an exclusive home for fancy yacht and water sports.
Hey! They’ve got Jumbo restaurant too. The exterior looks so much gangster that the one we’ve got here.
During the night, we travelled to the famous Avenue of Stars and saw some art installations outside.
This one’s titled Waterdrop by Danny Lee crafted off stainless steel. It somewhat reminds me of Chicago’s iconic Cloud Gate.
Avenue of Stars pay tribute to iconic HK actors; sort of like Hollywood Walk of Fame.
To end the night off, we immersed ourselves in the beautiful Hong Kong skyline. (So stupid of me not to bring my tripod along.)
