Hong Kong - the City Where Dreams Come True

 

On the way from the romantic Bali Islands to Moscow, Dima decided to make a one-day stopover in Hong Kong. He was traveling with his girlfriend, Alina. After an enjoyable evening stroll through the city, they returned back to the hotel. As they got out of the taxi, Dima asked his girlfriend what she was dreaming of — "It would be wonderful to stay here for another week!" said Alina. 

Hong Kong is known to be the city where dreams come true. 

The taxi left, carrying away Dima's backpack with the telephone, credit cards and the passport on its back seat. It was Friday night, their plane was leaving on Saturday, and the Embassy was going to be opened only on Monday... This is how Dima and Alina have stayed in Hong Kong for another week.

Surveillance video cameras at the hotel's entrance captured the license plate of the taxi, but the backpack was no longer there. The driver said that he didn't see anything and that the next passengers must have taken the backpack.

While a friend from Moscow was sending his new foreign passport to Hong Kong, Dima had a lot of spare time. He shot these panoramic photos when the sky was especially beautiful, decorated with magnificent clouds.

Alina's wish helped to stay in Hong Kong for another week  

Editor's note:

Actually, I also wanted Dima to stay in Hong Kong and shoot the panoramas. And as we know, Hong Kong is the city where dreams come true...


Now, a few words about Hong Kong.

Hong Kong is both a city and a state, and (more precisely), a special administrative area of the People's Republic of China. It is truly "special" in all regards. 

Hong Kong is one of the worldwide financial centers, and this mere fact places certain obligations on its residents and determines the city's architectural appearance (the first skyscrapers in China were built here). Additionally, a special administrative status allows Hong Kong to have its own laws, and it takes full advantage of those. 

For example, the notorious one-child Chinese birth restriction policy does not apply to Hong Kong: its citizens may have as many children as they like. Frequently, Hong Kong residents do not think of themselves as Chinese. They speak fluent English, which is the second national language here. Those who were born prior to 1997 have "open passports", which means they can travel without a visa to the countries that otherwise require an entrance visa from Chinese citizens. 

So, where does "prior to 1997" come from? It is the year when the former British colony became a part of China. Prior to that, Britain has leased this land from China for 99 years, developing it and spreading its culture. Nevertheless, this lease agreement was not renewed upon expiration. 

Rumors say that the British were unable to keep their overseas territory because Hong Kong does not have drinking water sources of their own. Historically, drinking water was delivered to the islands from the Chinese mainland, which imposed a strict condition — a renewal of lease agreement would bring the water supply to an end. As a compromise, Hong Kong was promised a full autonomy and preservation of their lifestyle. Nowadays, Hong Kong is an incredible mix of all achievements of the West with unique appearance of the East.

Charming colonial-style mansions co-exist in harmony with high-rise buildings erected due to the limited territory. Architects of Hong Kong are guided by modern technical knowledge, and at the same time they follow Feng Shui tradition. Hence, many buildings have mirror tiles on their front side to prevent evil spirits from getting inside. The corners of buildings can be slanted or rounded — it is a Feng Shui symbol of friendship and protection from all negative influence. 

The name of the city, "Hong Kong" is translated as "fragrant harbor". Thus, water and plants become an equally important part of the local landscape. Actually, there is a lot of greenery around: both in the city, and in the famous Victoria Park — home of the Victoria Peak, the highest (552 meters) point of the Hong Kong Island. 

By the way, Hong Kong has a total of 262 islands in the South China Sea, most of which are really small. The largest island of the archipelago is the Lantau Island, famous for its airport, Disneyland and the gigantic Buddha statue. Curiously enough, fairly small territory of Hong Kong has over 600 shrines that are spread all over the islands.

"The Hong Kong Skyscrapers" and "The Hong Kong Lights" are the two names of the second-largest Island. It is this very island that you can see on this panoramic photo.

Yale---Hong Kong

Xin Cheng, Taiwan Region

Ah it comes again, a random chinese guy being proud of something that belongs to Hong Kong.

All those building and the current economical status, they are all made possible by hardworking Hongkongers, not chinese.
We are proud of our city, our land, our people, our culture, our law.

These are not belongs to china and it will NEVER BE, cause in your country you got no law but orders of the party no humans but cold-blooded monkeys no culture --- which your country destroyed itself.

All you have is the land and city occupied and copied from others.
Why bother going on the internet which your country banned most of it?

Weird.

Edwin, Tin Yeung Lau, Hong Kong

Simply breathtaking - Hong Kong is my favourite city for travel. I adore each and every occasion spent in the district, and cannot wait to head back there. These panoramic shots simply take me back to a place I'm most happy.

Thank you.

Memories of experience revived. beautiful pictures, captivating ambience. HK is where dreams run high above the head, a meeting and melting pot of east and west, but free, liberal, dynamic yet bustling cosmopolitan. every street corner, every step in Hong Kong is exciting, is full of fun and flavour. the best city so far.

sidhatra chatterjee, India

I live in Hong Kong since I was 9 years old. I am living in Toronto now. Since my whole life,I've travel to numerous big cities, Singapore, Malaysia, NY, LA, Boston, San Francisco, Beijing, Shanghai,none of them hold my heart in terms of convenience and dynamisim. Hong Kong is truly unique, maybe some European cities like Italy may match it in terms of history. HK Islands diversity, is where you can experience East & West.my parents still stay there. It was tragedy more than 100 years ago, it was just a poor village, however with British rule and its residents hard work, it become the Pearl of the Orient and the main Gateway to China. Now we have Shanghai, however, its law and freedom is unparelled in China. Maybe one day I will go back, however, the house prices deter me. The West has abundance, however do we treasure our gifts.May it shine towards its motherland and be a prime model.

dexter lumanog, Philippines

I was born in Hong Kong in 1929 & moved between Hong Kong & Shanghai - The change to HK is unbelievable. I left for the UK just before the Japanese invaded & my doctor from the Peak hospital was murdered by the japanese when he tried to protect the patients. I have been back but can hardly recognise the place

Robert Ramage, United Kingdom

Lived in HK 1966 to 1968 in North Point area. Husband part of the British Forces. My son was born in the BMH in Kowloon. Fond, fond memories of every day I spent in HK. Visited again the year before before china reclaimed the island. No rickshaws about then but my old skyscraper home was still standing up in the hills of North Point - happy days.

ENID CADMAN, Hong Kong

The panorama is so good! I am a Hong Kong-nese, I love how people appreciate Hong Kong these days. However, it is not that perfect. I'm just 16 years old, but I know more about Hong Kong through studying and of course everyday's living. I love living in Hong Kong myself, despite it having social issues that many other places have and some very unique issues...

Toby Ng, Hong Kong

I am stay in hk 8 year and...hongkong very nice country

Wali Yanti, Indonesia

Superb and inspiring! My wife is a local and we're in Hong Kong every year for a few weeks. Your panoramas help dispel 'HK nostalgia' when we're back in Geneva.....

Excellent photographic work, I miss Hong Kong, when I have visited Hong Kong was more advance then London England in few things. When I have visited Hong Kong was under British-England. I went there on a business tour and stayed with my brother Mr. Pravin D. Mehta. Now its like a dream. Beautiful-lovely city.

Merrill Rosenberger, USA

The very first comment says is best. "Marvellous educative and entertaining also." One can only emulate whats been said so they don't sound redundant. Which is also something not found in all thats been written. What an incredible adventure it must be to travel to all the wonderful and unique places in the world we live in!

None of these answers so far has it quite right.Hong Kong Island itelsf was ceded to the British after the First Opium War, in 1842 (the U.K. had occupied the island since 1841). Kowloon was ceded to the British after the Second Opium War, in 1860. The British were given a 99-year lease to the New Territories in 1898.Obviously, modern China was not interested in renewing the lease to the British. The Brits, in turn, realized that Hong Kong Island and Kowloon was not viable as a self-sustaining territory on its own, especially with a large, powerful neighbor that considered Hong Kong stolen land. So negotiations began to return the whole territory to China but in a way that would be as acceptable as possible to the governments and population.That's how the deal came about to make Hong Kong a special administrative region, a part of China but with many of Hong Kong's institutions remaining in place, including currency, freedoms, English as an official language , etc. These are guaranteed for 50 years after the handover. In other words, 37 years to go.China negotiated a similar deal with Portugal to get back Macau, which reverted to Chinese rule in 1999. China has offered Taiwan status as a special administrative region to come under Beijing's autonomy, but not surprisingly, the renegade province has declined.

Jhonatan Jhonata, Virgin Islands (British)

What an amazing work of art! Just awesome!!
Thanks to the wonderful team of AirPano for their generosity and thoughtfulness in sharing this to the whole world!

Sarla Gangadhar, Hong Kong

A fascinating overview of the city that I love and that has been my home for the past 25 years. One can of course get some idea of a panorama from Victoria Peak (which is not in Victoria Park by the way) but short of taking a helicopter ride oneself, these views are simply the best! Do come again though; I long ago lost count of the new buildings springing up all over, and you'll note two large areas of flat (reclaimed) land along the harbour front. Come back and shoot again in a few years and they will have disappeared under new construction - guaranteed:-)

Bob McNab, Hong Kong

Great job the views are breathtaking.The i have ever seen.Congratulation Airpano.

I was there in 1956 when I was in the navy,and I haven't had a chance to return. O MY GOD! I would have never thought it would have changed so much. I have photos of riding around in rickshaws ,and the junk boats tied up together. I have alot of memories of the old Hong Kong. Great work!!

My Hong Kong Chinese friends are really lovely people; hard working and diligent. I miss Hong Kong and hope to return once apartment prices become affordable. Long live Hong Kong!

Iain Seymour-Hart, United Kingdom

Excellent production and clarity given the challenges the air born polution can pose from the north. We lived there from 1980 to 2002 and just loved it. Your site has kindled a serious interest to return and see the changes first hand that have occurred over the last 10 years.

What wonderful memories this brought back to me . as i was watching it. I saw myself and my husband there in 1986 and remembering a happier time in life. Having tea, at the Pennsular Hotel,
The view from Victoria Peak, and the ride to get up there, my ride in a rickshaw, and all the wonderful places we visited.
I am still wearing a beautiful gold ring that we bought there on my finger after twenty six years.
and still get comments on it, it is a Dragon with jewels in it, and still looks brand new. We so wished we could have spent more time there, but we were on tour, and only had a couple of days.
Thank you for bringing all thoose wonderful memories back to me. Rosemarie . U.S.A.

I live in Hong Kong, and this is, without doubt, one of the best interactive ways to look at our modern, incredibly crowded city. Thanks for doing this! I'm recommending it to all my friends.

Eric Tan, Hong Kong

A thrilling exposition of Hong Kong in the 21st century. We were there with our children on a contract for a post in the Social Welfare Department. |They were busy times but we found time to explore the urban areas and the beautiful countryside on many memorable walking trips. A long time ago (1964-8)but never forgotten.

It's great! Thank you for the comment.

Truly magnificent panoramas. I lived and worked in Hong kong for 20 years between 1986 and 20007. I am now fortunate to be back here on a 3 month contract. There have been many changes over the years, but a wonderful place. A pleasure largely unknown to the outside world is the wonderful hiking that can be done in the country parks of Hong Kong. Keep up the good work. Alan

absolutely fascinating, just wish I had the chance to visit when my nephew and his family lived there. FYI I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Even though I spent my vacation in HK once or twice yearly in the past, I haven't got down to such spectacular view of HK. My forthcoming visit to HK this summer,hopefully will give a better insight of this lovely island and city.

George Chee, Singapore


Have a nice staying there! We hope, our pano will help you to know this city better.

I lived their for 18 months when my husband was on Embassy Dutyin 1992 - 1993. We loved it there it is so beautiful and the people so freindly. I think the best time was during the Dec when the city is all lighted up. We went on a pirate chip out to the South China Seas and swam there just amazing. It is my dream to return there one day. We currently reside in San Antonio, TX after my husband retired from the Marine Corps serving 28 years. We still say to each each the one place we miss the most is Hong Kong. We will celebrate 30 years of marriage Feb 2013 and would like to visit Hong Kong again with Gods blessing in the future. I dearly miss Hong Kong

Urbana Rodriguez, USA


Oh, it's wonderful story. Congratulations with your 30-year marriage Anniversary! Have a nice trip to Hong Kong!

Excellent. I spent nearly thirty years in Hong Kong working on Civil Engineering projects, some of which can be seen from the panorama of the city.

Alan Pratt, United Kingdom


Thank you for the message and congratulations as you succeed in your projects!

Awesome photos.

Just one correction with the article though, while the word Hong can be translated as fragrant, the name of the city meant incense harbour (or port) because of the incense production in the region. this, of course, is according to legend - as with all names of places.

H Leung, Hong Kong

Excellent! We lived in HK for 3 years 1959 - 63. Our friends and neighbours, in Chater Hall on Conduit Rd, now live in South Africa and they sent this on to us. Hong Kong is and has always been a magnificent part of the world. Thanks for sharing this beautiful show.

Goy and Les Smith, Canada

Awesome! Hong Kong is my birthplace. I have been away from Hong Kong since 1996. From the panorama, I have seen a lot of changes there during these 16 years, in particular the erection of many new buildings on both sides of Victoria Harbour.

Mack Cheng, Canada


It's nice that we could orginize your meeting with the birthplace.

Varvara, AirPano

Hong Kong is my birth place ,but I din't view over like that, thanks.

wyn yam, Canada

Alexandre Azevedo, Brazil

What an experience! Awesome! This city was my home for a few years some 30 years ago. I'm curious; do they stil have the noon day gun?

Now you should develop a panorama showing the names of all the structures. Good luck!

John Howe, USA


We are grateful for your message. Good luck!

Varvara, AirPano

Your panorama was perfectly perfect because it showed off Hong Kong's pretty side.

O trabalho feito por voces é fantástico. Acho sensacional tudo isso. As fotos em movimento e as que podemos move-las arrastando o cursor para todos os lados são impressionantemente magnificas, Parabéns pela expressão artística da competência profissional da equipe.

The magnetism draws me back yearly to this bustling place with an unique flavor.....melting pot of the orient,never quiet and always something for
everyone,,,,.....memories,,,,swee n bitter all over the place,,,,,,

Brian Hwang, Malaysia

I'm delighted you lost your passport and stayed behind our city to take these magnificent photos. You should have chartered your helicopter for another 2 hrs. to go north to New Territories and you'd discover something more splendid. Next time perhaps.

Peter Tang, Hong Kong

Excellent aerial panoramas :) I have not been to Hong Kong since 1989. I want to return! I have read that the best time to photograph in Hong Kong is in October. I also enjoy stories about your experiences while capturing these panoramas.
