Default Some Slides from Hong Kong & China.

Discover Bay Hong Kong in slides.

Discovery Bay is a mixed residential and public recreational development in Hong Kong situated on the north-eastern coast of Lantau Island in the New Territories. The development spans an area of 650 hectares, and includes two bays, the Tai Pak Bay and Yi Pak Bay .

Discovery Bay is located 2km west of Hong Kong Disneyland and approximately 12km west from the nearest point on Hong Kong Island.

As of today, DB consists of 13 residential development phases with properties ranging from garden houses to high rise towers of up to 24 storeys. The development also features a public beach, 4 private membership clubs including a golf club and a marina club and a large public park but this has no public recreational facilities at present.

Though is considered a low-density development by Hong Kong standards due to the amount of open spaces (plot to development ratio), Discovery Bay is however the second most populous district (after the New Town of Tung Chung) on the sparsely populated Lantau Island. Unlike many other developments in Hong Kong, pets are allowed in DB, whereas other developments generally ban them due to limited space.

Ngong Ping Village, Hong Kong.


The Village is adjacent to Ngong Ping Cable Car Terminal and is a short walk from the Tian Tan Buddha Statue.

All are located at Ngong Ping on Lantau Island.

You can also see H.K. International Airport from the cable car.

As usual there is heavy smog, thanks to the factories of China.
To overcome it, I used ContrastMaster to improve it.

Lamma Island, Hong Kong.


Lamma Island, also known as Pok Liu Chau, is the third largest island in Hong Kong and part of the Islands District, Hong Kong.

Lamma Island is to the southwest of Hong Kong Island. It is 13.55 square kilometres and an estimated population of 6,000. Lamma is, in contrast to Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, peaceful and tranquil, with relatively natural scenery.

Buildings higher than three storeys are prohibited and there are no automobiles, but diminutive fire trucks and ambulances, as well as distinctive open-back vehicles to transport construction materials. The community's only transport means is by foot or bicycle. Lamma provides an alternative to the hectic life in the city.


Property and rents are cheap compared with those of central Hong Kong. Partly in consequence, there is a significant expatriate community on Lamma Island. The seclusion offered by the limited ferry schedule sees regular expatriate beach parties at night. It is also popular with younger people and a haven for artists, cartoonists and musicians. There are regular ferry services to Yung Shue Wan and Sok Kwu Wan from Central on Hong Kong Island, as well as to Yung Shue Wan via Pak Kok, and to Sok Kwu Wan via Mo Tat Wan, from Aberdeen. It takes about 20 minutes by fast ferry, and 35 minutes by regular ferry, between Yung Shue Wan and Central.

Tai Kok Tshui Temple:-


According to the history, Hung Shing Temple, situated in Tai Kok Tsui, originally was a temple in the Fuk Chuen Village which was located at the intersecting point of the Boundary Street and Tai Kok Tsui Road. In 1928, as the Government developed the area, the Fuk Chuen Village was to be clear. The Hing Shing Temple was moved to the present site in Fuk Tsun Street which was named after the Fuk Chuen Village. Every 13th February in Lunar calendar, people would organize a series of activities to thank Hung Shing for bringing luck and safe to them for the year. It became the traditional date of Hung Shing Festival.

To celebrata Hung Shing Festival, The Mong Kok Kai Fong Association organizes the “Tai Kok Tsui Temple Fair” . The Fair is held at , Tai Kok Tsui, in front of the Hung Shing Temple. The Fuk Tsun Street, Beech Street, Pine Street, Lime Street will be temporary closed for this Fair. The Fair includes Chinese cultural performances and Poon Choi Feast for thousands people. Moreover, there are booths for youth and people to sell their featured goods to echo government’s promotion of community economy and to contribute to the prosperity of Hong Kong. There is a characterized performance of 500-feet Luminous Night Dragon Dance and the Traditional Puppetry Floats.

Here is a short video no1 -not really well taken. Dated 2009 instead of 1009 :-)

No, no, UC. Be even less careful the next time. We want to see more unintentional material!
