    Fondest memory: The architecture... I love the big old apartment buildings with peeling paint and clothes hanging from the balconies, the spray of dripping air conditioners as you pass under them... such character!

    Favorite thing: Visit the HSBC tower... HSBC is one of the prime players of the Hongkong economy and one special thing abt this building is that its made with help of just nuts and bolts, so that its atleast theoritically detachable and brought up in a completely different place.... :-)

    Favorite thing: Go and take the tram to the top of the 'PEAK' and have a 360 degree view of the surrounding area. This is a must see.

    Fondest memory: Watching over one in four people walk around with that funny looking thing attached to their ear. I think it was called a cell phone. The other thing that is hard to forget was the highrises that are being built with BAMBOO scaffolding

    Favorite thing: photograph the many skyscrapers here.... beginning with the impressive Bank of China and Citibank buildings.

    The one thing that may catch your attention is the extreme closeness of these buildings to one another. If you're claustrophobic, you may find coming to Central (financial district) a bit overwhelming. I guess this is due to the extreme shortage of land here in Hongkong causing the architects to maximize whatever space they can find/ get.

    Favorite thing: Bank of China Building, Central (Hong Kong Island). Designed by renowned Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei, the Bank of China Building is one of the world's ten tallest structures today. An architectural masterpiece, this soaring skyscraper is located in the heart of the financial district.

    Bamboo scafolding in HK

    Fondest memory: Bamboo scafolding is a typical Hong Kong sight: seemingly old-fashioned, it works at least as well as the more 'modern' metal used elsewhere outside Asia. And of course is a lot cheaper!!
