    Default Trip to HK

    Bedsides taking the usual busy street shots of HK, are there places where I can take amazing landscape, countrysides, lakes, etc?

    Any tips?

    You can try Victoria peak. Both in daytime and night, as well as sunset. Or you can walk along the avenue of stars, new territories also. Those are great scenic places.

    Ma Wan should be the best place to get a good close-up shot. I am looking at Tsing Mah bridge as I type this reply (staying in Sham Tseng where the famous roast goose are).

    Alternatively, type 青馬大橋 in search and you should come up with quote a few good shots.

    Yea. i just came back from HK, Tai-o is awesome for sunset. Try taking buses instead of MTR, its a fun experience to sit at the upper deck and then glancing down while the bus is moving through the hills.
