    Default Places to visit/shoot/eat at in HK

    Hi everyone,

    I'll be going to HK with the gf and family in June, and it's a DIY thing. Would appreciate it if you could point out places of interest to visit, great places to shoot, and maybe places with good food as well? What's HK without eating? hehe

    In the meantime, I'll be searching the internet as well.

    Thanks in advance!

    Places to go for scenery/shooting:
    1. The big buddha on the hill -- what's it called?
    2. Victoria peak
    3. Macau
    4. <<Your input here!>>

    The big buddha is on a hill on Lantau known as Ngong Ping. More info at link below:

    Victoria Peak is of course one of the most popular locations to visit and to take photos at. But the view won't be half as nice if it's hazy (which is quite often). If you get the kind of weather with constant bright sunshine and clear blue skies, and you see that the hills and mountains in the distance look green instead of tinted bluish, that's the best kind of weather to take scenery photos in HK.

    For places to go for food, shopping or just to take a look: Depends on what you like! The choice and variety is endless. Maybe you could share a little on what you generally like so we could narrow down some choices.

    Here's a (very) long thread about HK from HWZone. It helped me a lot when we went there last year.

    Check out the other threads there too.. you'll find plenty of inputs to aid you in planning your trip.
