Sai Wan Swimming Shed

1 save

Hong Kong, China • Recommendation • 

DESCRIPTION: A taste of what relaxation was like for Hong Kong people back in the 90s. The soothing sound of the ocean waves and fresh wind in your face combined with the passing ships and boats make for a picturesque view. PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: I came here with a good friend of mine hoping to enjoy a nice sunset and take some nice dance photos for her. We views were so much more beautiful than we expected and it was a very fun time. We grabbed some seafood at Kennedy Town afterward. ADVICE: Be aware during busy times such as during the sunset, there could be waits to take photos. People are usually considerate and don't take long. There also some sea bugs on the ground when walking down the stairs so don't be frightened.

Choi Hung Estate

3 saves

Hong Kong, China • Recommendation • 

DESCRIPTION: The fading paints, the colorful buildings still make for a great photo, seeming like a piece of art straight out of an exhibition. The location attracts people of all ages, the basketball courts filled by the young, benches and exercise machines packed with the elderly, and local residents leaving or arriving home. PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: I came here to shoot a scene for a film I was working on. The people in the area made it a bit hard to shoot but we still got some great shots. ADVICE: If you are looking for a perfect photo with no one in the background or walking into your shoot, you either must get really lucky or go at an odd hour as the area is usually crowded most hours of the day.

Lok Wah South Estate

1 save

Hong Kong, China • Memory • 

DESCRIPTION: The spiraling and mesmerizing effect created by the architectural design of this structure opens up opportunities for all sorts of creative photography. The area is quite isolated, being atop a car park, which is perfect for filming as well. PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: I came to this location to shoot a scene for a film I was working on as well. It was perfect because there were so few people. But the funny story is we came during sunset and had to keep moving the camera as the shadows cast caused continuity issues. Great location though. ADVICE: Explore the area around Lok Wah South Estate for a taste of what other parts of Hong Kong look like and other great photography spots.

Victoria Peak Garden

1 save

Hong Kong, China • Memory • 

DESCRIPTION: No better to place be during a nice Summer or Autumn day. The hike that leads to the garden is filled with great views of the city and nature. The Victoria Peak Garden is essentially an oasis of serenity amidst the bustling city. Completed separated from the city, this spot is a must go. PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: I came here with an ex looking for a nice outdoor place to chill and talk. We thought the mini garden below the actual peak was the peak so we spent a majority of the time there. But after seeing people pass us to go upwards, we decided to follow and found this gem. We watched the sunset from the temple and talked. A moment I won't forget. ADVICE: Don't forget to keep walking upwards till you find the man at the kiosk or the temple structure as this was the mistake I made and only got to stay there for a short amount of time.

Ping Shek Estate

1 save

Hong Kong, China • Memory • 

DESCRIPTION: The feeling of stepping into the middle and looking upwards through the tiny square high above my head in Ping Shek Estate is a sight and feeling I will not forget. The enclosed feeling the four sides of the building give off is both terrifying and invigorating. Great place to just sit and watch things happen. PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: I came here during a location scout for a film I was working on. Although it was not a location suitable for filming, it definitely was a great location for photography. We sat in the middle of the landing for a while discussing our plans while taking in the location. ADVICE: This spot is close to Choi Hong Estate so don't forget to plan the visits together.

Braemar Hill Peak

Hong Kong, China • Memory • 

DESCRIPTION: A classic location to see both the Hong Kong side and the Kowloon side of Hong Kong. With the Victoria Harbour dividing the two sides, the location provides an extraordinary view of Hong Kong, especially during the sunset. PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: I have come to this location more times than I can remember for more reasons than I can remember. But never once was I disappointed with the view and peace I saw and felt during my time there. ADVICE: Beware is crowded during sunset times especially on weekends. But if you're looking for photographers to befriend it is a great place to be. Also, be careful of the darkness after the sunsets, this could cause diffculty finding your way down the hill.
