Hong Kong 1/3: Hong Kong Island & Kowloon

Photo gallery: Hong Kong Island and Kowloon
Google Earth Position: 22°16'17.21"N 114°10'53.62"E

I spent one week in Hong Kong, the Special Administrative Region of China. Hong Kong consists of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon Peninsula, Lantau Island and the New Territories as well as some 260 other islands.

This gallery is from Hong Kong Island and Kowloon which form the historical, political and economic centre of Hong Kong and are the core urban areas.

Well… I have too much experience from this magnificent city to write all here so if you want to read more about Hong Kong please visit e.g. (especially Transport, Architecture and Economy part).

Photo gallery: Tasmania: from Freycinet Peninsula to Hobart

Nine Mile Beach – sandy dunes with grass

Forestier and Tasman Peninsula – south-eastern Tasmania

Freycinet National Park – consists of granite mountains and surrounded by azure bays and white sand beaches

Port Arthur – a site of an historic convict settlement

Tasman National Park – protects diverse forest and spectacular coastline

Richmond – a historical town with Australia's oldest bridge still in use

Hobart – the state capital and most populous city of the Australian island state of Tasmania. Founded in 1803 as a penal colony, it is Australia's second oldest and eleventh largest city, with a metropolitan population of approximately 202,000.

Mount Wellington – rising 1270 metre above Hobart’s harbour provides panoramic views of Hobart. Simply great finish of my Tasmania’s trip!
