CLIMB HIGH

Trek up to Lugard Road Lookout at Victoria Peak. It offers expansive views out over Hong Kong with a cool juxtaposition of jungle greenery against the Hong Kong skyline.

GO PUBLIC

Head out to one of the many public housing estates all over the city and snap a Michael Wolf-inspired image. Take a tight close up of the huge towers to highlight the immense urban density of Hong Kong.

 

 

HEAD UNDERGROUND

Hong Kong’s ever emerging live metal music scene provides a visual feast of the edgy and rebellious letting off steam in packed underground nightspots. Check Hong Kong Metal Alliance on Facebook for up and coming events.

 

VISIT THE NEW TERRITORIES

Stop by Pak Sha O Village. This off-the-radar spot within the Sai Kung Country Park is the last unspoiled Hakka Village. The ramshackle ancient buildings are a living time capsule of a period long gone in the city state.
