The view from my hotel room at the Cosmopolitan Hotel, near Happy Valley in Hong Kong. It’s a Great Hotel, and reasonably priced. The tall building on the left, the one with the illuminated spire, is The Center, the fourth tallest skyscraper in Hong Kong.
I lived in Hong Kong for a year and I love the place, I still have several good freinds who live there too.
This is a photo I took in Hong Kong in 1996 which I posted to my Flickr account. Found a bunch of old black & white as well as colour scans that I did quite a few years ago of which this is one. Pretty neat that you can post a blog entry straight from Flickr.
The image is from the Star Ferry terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui, which is on the Kowloon peninsular. From here you can get ferries to Hong Kong Island. If you go to Hong Kong I’d say that this is a journey you have to do, it only takes about 15 minutes and costs very little.
