Wander Pi Wednesdays: Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour

Every Wednesday, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite photos from my travels.

Located between Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula, Victoria Harbour is one of the largest harbours in the world and is considered to be the lifeline of Hong Kong. Home to the historic Star Ferries, various cruise liners, cargo ships, and wooden junk boats, the port is always bustling with life and is never still. Literally known as the ‘fragrant harbour,’ the harbour is the pulsing heart of this vibrant city and has long played an intricate role in the development of Hong Kong. From here, the famous skyline can be witnessed in all its beauty and grandeur.

Wander Pi Wednesdays: Hong Kong’s Nan Lian Garden

Every Wednesday, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite photos from my travels.

Hong Kong is home to over seven million people and is considered to be one of the most densely populated places in the world, yet there are still spots of serenity hidden amongst the giant concrete skyscrapers and hordes of people that dominate this city. This photo was taken at the Nan Lian Garden. The garden is classically Chinese, located in Diamond Hill, it offers a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city’s busy streets. The garden’s Pavilion of Absolute Perfection is truly perfect and a tranquil sight to behold in such a modern arena.
