by pietershoek

Who can tell me more about the sculpture of the big hands on Nathan Road
For instance who has made it, when was it placed there. Size?, etc.
May be a link to local website with more information or a nice picture.

Thanks and kind regards, Joop

It was a gift to the city of Kowloon by the Kowloon Rotzary club, and it was created by a sculptor named Van Lau.

Travel Tips for Hong Kong

If it wasn't the rain...

by solopes

I know that three days in Hong Kong would leave not much time for the beach, but I always thought that, at least one hour would be found to a quick swim. No! The weather didn't allow it, and we used the saved time (would you believe?)... shopping.

Be Prepared

by lemon4juice

Before going to Hong Kong research first the weather condition. If it’s summer you know what to bring, the most comfortable shirt that you got, and bring extra please. It is so humid that you will feel sticky. I also prefer rubber shoes to make sure I am always ready for a long walk. And when it’s rainy season, always have your umbrella. Some hotels offer free use of umbrellas. And make sure you have food inside the hotel because shops literally close during typhoon, specially the major shopping malls. Sometimes they also shutdown the MTR operation bus ride can really be a hard time.

Kowloon area is a nice place to stay because it is strategically located in the city, very accessible to transpo, even just walking brings you to one of Hong Kong’s Top spot such as the Nathan Road.

If you are in Hong Kong, you...

by Xinta

If you are in Hong Kong, you must visit The Peak and must not miss it out during your stay in Hong Kong, as you can capture a splendid view of the world famous Hong Kong skyline and Victoria Harbour. Do go up to the Peak Tower to get the best view, especially during the night, as it is simply magnificent, and you can enjoy the enchanting night scenery of Hong Kong Island across Victoria Harbour to the Kowloon Peninsula, known as one of the four most spectacular night scenes in the world.

Take the ferry system...

by barbi

Take the ferry system randomly, but always keep a card from your hotel in case you get lost. The bay and the people on the ferry are a great experiance and a way to get out ot the crowds for awhile Shopping in the marketplaces with the local people. The great 5 star restaurants

living in a sky

by picek

It is simply amazing how things are built in Hong Kong. Especially when you speak of those residental buildings, very thin and very tall, its roofs touching the sky ... How many thousands can live there? At some level we speak of the most densely populated areas in the world.

I went for a walk on the Canton road, west of Nathan road in Kowloon where this pic was taken - near newely reclaimed from the sea area (where huge construction sites are and new skyscrapers and stuff).

What never fails to amaze by cities of such scale is the growth along vertical line together with material, work force and energy used. And how much that one single buidling consumes, especially in electricity terms and waste production. And then... how much of land is actually saved for other uses when we are to live in heights, far from the soil. Really, you should go and see... Actually, there must be great views in the highest of floors in the building.

The third photo: see the field of huge construction site in one of the sites near centre. New growing next to old, they're bound to live in symbiosis.
