Hong Kong: Bright Lights, Big City

Hong Kong is an energetic and charming city, with deafening urban noise. It is situated on the southern coast of China, surrounded by the Pearl River Delta and South China Sea. It is one of the two SARs of the PRC.

It is famous for the endless horizon, natural deepwater harbor, and being one of the most densely populated areas in the world.

In Hong Kong, you must explore the narrow, maze-like alleys. Inside, you will see the locals going about their daily lives and focus your attention on the most mundane but pin sharp moments: A housewife bargaining with the fishmonger, the shiny roast ducks behind the gleaming windows, beggars kneeling on the streets or shopkeepers waiting for their customers…

Sheung Wan is a famous tourist landmark, filled with busy locals and foreigners. If you are in Sheung Wan, LGS HK (located at Po Yan Street) is a must-visit location. Behind the pillars, you can see locals reading or dozing off. Inside the shop, you will be greeted by a giant LC-A+ and a bunch of Lomography Merchandise. It has everything you can ever wish for. Don’t forget to buy the Lomo HK logo bag as a memento of the happy times you’ve spent in HK.
