Hong Kong from Kowloon Hong Kong - March 2001.

 

Me in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, overlooking Hong Kong Island, with Victoria Peak behind my head. This was my very first view of Hong Kong.

Hong kong Trams
These trams are still an everyday mode of transport along the length of Hong Kong. They originally were the major mode of transport in Edinburgh (UK) in the late 1800's and then shipped out to Hong Kong in 1904. They are an excellent cheap way of getting around, costing only 25p whatever the length of journey. If you sit on the top deck, you get to see views of everyday life in the city. They are very hot, very uncomfortable, very noisy, very crowded, and very good fun.

Tsim Sha Tsui Tsim Sha Tsui is the very busy shopping district in Kowloon.

There are many small streets crammed with shops and advertising signs, and all are just as busy.

Aberdeen Harbour Aberdeen is on the south of Hong Kong Island.

It has a busy harbour, which used to be home to hundreds of boat people not so long ago, but now it is becoming one of the most expensive residential areas on the Island.
