High-rise Hong Kong
• High-rise Hong Kong
As part of my trip to Asia I had a chance to visit one of the most exciting and interesting cities in the world - Hong Kong. In the city I was only 4 days. During this very short period of time I was able to get a decent amount of roof which offers the best views of the most high-altitude city in the world.
After a visit to Hong Kong I often began to ask whether it was true technique there several times cheaper than in Russia. Frankly, if you take just a stall with local baryg, the prices in the area as in any Media Markt in Moscow. But if you know the people and places, over 20-25 thousand, you can safely buy stolen 5D Mark II or the MacBook Pro in 2012 in the middle set.
If you are traveling to China, and to wait for a visa do not have time, it is best to do it through Hong Kong. Visa to the neighbors you can buy from the local up to 2 thousand rubles for 3 months and you will get it the next day after payment.
Moment number one, on top of the day in anything is almost impossible to remove. City enveloped a huge amount of smog, and at home on a nearby shore already struggling to look narrowly at a telephoto lens camera.
It looks all very grim.
The photo was taken from the city's tallest building. Its height of 480 meters, at the top is very expensive and a luxury restaurant. Unfortunately the very roof could not get me on this here's just one frame from the restaurant. For scale, the bottom of the orange house where some 60 floors.
At night the city is transformed and looks really cool.
Daily on the waterfront, you can catch a beautiful laser show. Alas, on the photo it is very difficult to capture.
Left height in the frame, this is the best 480-meter skyscraper. Frankly, architecturally it looks disgusting, one of the worst buildings in the city.
One of the best roofs, where I was. Hotel JW Marriott.
from the roof in all of Hong Kong is very difficult, probably one of the most sophisticated cities in terms polazok. Here the doors are not just close to the castle, they also pose a fire alarm and if you broke the lock, try to open the door, the whole house will yell fire alarm. So I can safely say that the skyscrapers of 5 at best, I was able to get just one.
There is a good viderolik about ruftoperov from Hong Kong, mainly for the hit on the roof, they used the master key. I, alas, such forces do not yet have so much of the hoped for good luck or to find alternative ways to bypass doors.
Hong Kong is located on Koulunskom Peninsula, west, south and east by the South China Sea, as well as more than 260 islands, the largest of which are Hong Kong (location of the bodies of the supreme power and financial center of the territory), Lantau and Lamma. In the north of Hong Kong is bordered with a special economic zone of Shenzhen in the composition of China's Guangdong province. Hong Kong can be divided into three parts: the Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories. Hong Kong is part of the Pearl River Delta region, lying on the left side of her mouth.
In 1842, Hong Kong was captured by the United Kingdom and remained its colony until 1997, when the People's Republic has received the sovereignty over the territory. According to a joint Sino-British Declaration and the Basic Law of Hong Kong, the territory granted wide autonomy until 2047, ie for 50 years after the transfer of sovereignty. As part of the "one country - two systems" and "Hong Kong govern themselves Hong Kongers in the high degree of autonomy" during this period, the Central People's Government of China takes on matters of defense and foreign policy areas, while Hong Kong retains control over law, police force, monetary system, customs duties and immigration policy, and maintains representation in international organizations and events.
Until 1997, Hong Kong was a British territory. Hence, in a fairly large number of English architecture.
A few words about the alternative to climb on the roof. Here, for example courtyard ordinary apartment building, as seen at the top of the frame, in the middle there is a window, it is closed with glass curtains that can be dismantled within 10 minutes. But this is a very simple version, there are situations where the window was a few meters below the roof and had to almost jump and cling to the edge of the roof.
A snack - photos from the main tourist places of Hong Kong - Victoria Peak.
Thus ended Hong Kong.
