Travel Guide: Hong Kong
Posted on 14 October 2016
We invited photographer, Lauren Engel to share her Hong Kong
Aberdeen is a quick bus ride away from Causeway Bay. Aberdeen is known for their stunning horizon of fishing boats, old temples and seafood. Great place to take pictures of the old Hong Kong.
I've done a few photoshoots here and the backdrop of local Hong Kong really makes for some scenic pictures. I feel like I'm stepping into something from a film. Hope this area still looks the same in a few years!
Wan Chai is great to find local snacks. Growing up I used to come here after work for some noodles and egg tarts. Tai Cheong is my go to place, their egg tarts use the freshest ingredients.
I love the City Hall area. At City Hall you can watch many different shows from Chinese opera, classic music performances to ballet. There are some overpasses which look over the water and you can take some pictures of Victoria Harbour.
Next to city hall is an open roof car park which is great for photography with buildings all around. The Legislative Council and Chater Garden are great areas as well near here.
I'm obsessed with 6IXTY8IGHT they have nearly 80 stores across Hong Kong and China. Their campaigns are stunning and I love their aesthetic.
Mino Mart in Kowloon is also great, it features a lot of international brands like Lazy Oaf.
