Travel theme: Distance / Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea – Hong Kong Harbor Mists

Hong Kong Harbor Mists by Seas Reflecting Starlight

From high on Victoria Peak on Hong Kong Island, there is a spectacular view of the city below.  The nearby skyscrapers seem surprisingly striking for this cloudy April day.  On the other side of the harbor, shapes on the Kowloon peninsula fade in and out of the midday mists.  The faint outline of the mountains looms in the distance.

Hong Kong Harbor can feel bustling, yet peaceful, depending on where you are.  Generally I’m not a big fan of huge cities, but I like Hong Kong.  It really is a place that has something for everyone.  The city itself has everything you can imagine, and when you want to get away, town and rural areas are only a short metro, ferry, or bus ride away.  It is also ridiculously easy to navigate.  Hong Kong gets points for having one of the best airports and metro systems I’ve ever seen.  My first time ever traveling alone was in Hong Kong, and it didn’t take me long to get comfortable exploring the city.

  1. I love that you combined these challenges, and your photo works beautifully for both!
    My daughter was so enamored of Hong Kong she actually re-ordered her itinerary to stop there again while on her year long world trip. Seeing your photo and remembering the ones she’s shown me, I totally understand the appeal!

    • Thank you! This was my first time combining challenges, but this photo was such a nice blend of both themes that I couldn’t resist!
      How wonderful that your daughter was able to take a year long world trip! Did she blog about her journey? I’m glad that she enjoyed Hong Kong so much. It’s one of my favorite huge cities as well. Glad it helped bring back some nice memories.
