If the sky is the limit, then go there

If you’re a fan of futuristic cityscapes, make Hong Kong your next destination. It’s one of the most densely populated urban areas in the world, and it shows. With endless arrays of skyscrapers and a plethora of modern architecture to marvel at, you could easily spend one month in Hong Kong without getting bored of taking photos.

Because Hong Kong is such a compact city, it’s very easy to get around. Just hop on the metro and it’ll take you anywhere you want to go – whether it’s the chaotic, neon-lit streets of Kowloon, the maze-like alleys of Hong Kong Central, or the photogenic apartment buildings of Quarry Bay. To get the best city views, try hiking up one of the surrounding mountains. Trust me: you won’t regret it. Keep in mind though, that air pollution is a persistent problem in Hong Kong, and it can seriously hamper your views.
