  • 2 years ago. Locals call it "Monster-Building". The complex behind me is actually composed by 5 connecting structures and were build in 1960s. Lower floors are used for shops and the upper floors as residences. It's a private residential area, so take care to respect people who live there.

  • With the limited amount of land in Hong Kong, the city's history has been one of building vertically rather than horizontally. This has resulted in some pretty fascinating architecture as shown through these photos taken by @uwo— 📌 #hongkong— 📷 @uwo#voyaged #travel #adventure

Three ways to reach the Peak are hiking through Aberdeen's forests, via Asia’s oldest funicular, the Peak Tram (image 6) or by the 15 bus from Central. At the top is an observatory. Alternatively, Hong Kong’s highest observation deck, Sky 100 (sky100.com.hk), is suspended 390m above terra firma, on the 100th floor of the territory’s tallest building, the International Commerce Centre (ICC, image 5) in West Kowloon, offering a 360⁰ view covering Hong Kong Island and almost all of Kowloon Peninsula. 18 floors higher on the ICC is Ozone, Ritz Carlton’s bar. A good book to read in the bar is Days and Nights of Love and War (Días y Noches de Amor y de Guerra,1978) by exiled Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano. It chronicles two decades of struggle and perseverance in Latin America, with the 1976 Argentine coup d'état as its focal point. Galeano reveals episodes of his early life such as surviving malaria, loss of faith in God, threats of military coups, dictators and censorship, as well as his experiences living amongst Indians, guerrillas, presidents and prostitutes. He defends his compatriots as well as Brazilian street children and embattled indigenous Mexicans. Image 10 shows the HK exhibition centre where the UK relinquished HK to China.@shashank5241

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) reached Hong Kong in March 2003.  From 11 March up to 6 June, a total of 1750 cases had been identified and 286 people died including at least 8 doctors and nurses tending to patients. Nearby Guandong in mainland China had experienced an intense outbreak of the atypical pneumonia later termed SARS, starting in November 2002 and reached its peak in February 2003 with 1511 cases and 57 deaths. Mainland China had a total of 5329 cases with 336 reported deaths.☠☠☠ 🤧 Ten years after the outbreak, apartment and office blocks still boast of how many times daily they sanitise lift buttons, hand rails, door knobs and almost all public surfaces. Masks are de rigueur if you have a cold, and a sneezing or coughing fit on public transport meets with disapproving glances. Kindergartens, require parents to record their child's body temperature in a special notebook each morning. If we forget, an admonishing note comes back. 🤧 ☠☠☠☠☠☠☠☠ Memorials to deceased are in labelled boxes, in seried ranks ( columbariums ) , often with a photograph and names outside ( Images 3,4,5). These boxes are reminiscent of the high rise apartments within which most people live ( see previous post, HK diary No LVI ) Image 5 shows a German man, Balke Heinz, who led an expat life in Hong Kong, dieting at the age of 51. More than 90% of deceased were cremated in 2013, but Hong Kong is still struggling to find spots for them in public columbariums ( waiting time 4 years & cost $300; private cost $100K - Image 5). 🙏 🕉 The evening Gatha in zen includes the line : Life and Death are of supreme importance. Do not squander your life ... 🕉

The tallest building is the 108-story International Commerce Centre next to Kowloon station ( Images 1, 2), which stands 484 m (1,588 ft) and is the ninth tallest building in the world. The total built-up height (combined heights) of these skyscrapers is approximately 333.8 km (207 mi),making Hong Kong the world's tallest urban agglomeration. Furthermore, Hong Kong has more inhabitants living at the 15th floor or higher, and more buildings of at least 100 m (328 ft) and 150 m (492 ft) height, than any other city in the world. Most buildings are concentrated on the northern shore of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, and the New Towns (satellite towns) of the New Territories, such as Tsuen Wan and Sha Tin. Additional high-rises are located along Hong Kong Island's southern shoreline and areas near the stations of the Mass Transit Railway (MTR). The skyline of Hong Kong Island is famed for its unique arrangement, with surrounding mountains (image10)⛰⛰⛰ 🏩🏨🏦🏣 #rpscontemporarygroup #aumphotos #aum

From the first tall building in the 1930s, the growth of our 7,833 high-rises is of undeniable significance. According to Guinness World Record estimates, Hong Kong is the world’s tallest urban agglomeration, with the combined height of all skyscrapers surpassing 330 kilometres (205 miles). Moreover, according to estimates by the Hong Kong government, the city has a population density of 6,698 people per square kilometre – making it one of the world’s densest, and most vertical places. #rpscontemporarygroup

It is one of the most expensive residential areas in Hong Kong. Note image 4 showing " Destroy Racism " graffiti on the lifeguard tower. The origin of the name Repulse Bay is unclear. In the 1910s, Repulse Bay was developed into a beach, and the Repulse Bay Hotel was built in 1920. To attract swimmers, a bus route from Central to Repulse Bay was created, and now stands as one of Hong Kong's oldest bus routes. During the Battle of Hong Kong in World War II, Repulse Bay was an important strategic location. The beach was extended artificially, and thus the sand closer to the shore is coarser in texture than the sand further away. Until the early 1960s, residential buildings were quite restricted. Three blocks of six storey apartments were developed by Dr. P. P. Chiu and his brother P. W. Chiu, part way up the mountain overlooking Repulse Bay. These were luxury apartments with servants' quarters, with only two apartments per floor in Blocks A and B. Apartments in Block C are smaller. For a long time, these were the only apartments allowed on the mountain.

Every Sunday, Chater Road is blocked off and the helpers celebrate by hanging out, eating food and dancing in the middle of the street or amongst cardboard boxes. Despite their poverty, happiness shines in their eyes. Comprising five percent of Hong Kong's population, about 98.5% of them are women. In 2017, there were 370,000 foreign domestic helpers in the territory; of these, 48 percent were from the Philippines, 49.4 percent from Indonesia and 1.3 percent from Thailand. Required by law to live in their employer's residence, they perform household tasks such as cooking, serving, cleaning, dishwashing and child care. Faced with a poor economy in 1974, Filipino President, Ferdinand Marcos implemented a labour code which began his country's export of labour in the form of overseas workers. The Philippine government encouraged this labour export to reduce the unemployment rate and enrich its treasury with the workers' remittances.  The economy of the Philippines became increasingly dependent on labour export; in 1978 labour-export recruiting agencies were privatised, and became a cornerstone of the economy. #rpscontemporarygroup

Owned and operated by RATP Dev Transdev Asia, the tramway runs on Hong Kong Island between Kennedy Town and Shau Kei Wan, with a branch circulating through Happy Valley. The catchphrase for the cheap fare is highlighted by the tramway's past advertising slogan: "Hop on 1. $2.3. Tram so easy!" There is also a cable car up to the Peak ( Image 3), a funicular railway,  owned and operated by and Shanghai Hotels (HSH), which includes the fabled Peninsula Hotel, carrying both tourists and residents to the upper levels of Hong Kong Island. Running from Garden Road Admiralty to Victoria Peak via the Mid-Levels, it provides the most direct route and offers good views over the harbour and skyscrapers of Hong Kong.

Tower 2 is the second tallest building in Hong Kong (415 m), behind the International Commerce Centre in West Kowloon. It is fearured in the films Batman, and Blade Runner. It is the fourth-tallest building in the Greater China region and the eighth-tallest office building in the world, based on structural heights; It is of similar height to the former World Trade Center. The Airport Express Hong Kong Station is directly beneath it. 🏦 In 2003, Financial Times, HSBC, and Cathay Pacificput up an advertisement on the facade that stretched more than 50 storeys, covering an area of 19,000 m2(0.2 million square ft) and a length of 230 m, making it the world's largest advertisement ever put on a skyscraper. 🏦 Two International Finance Centre, is a 415-metre-tall (1,362 ft) building, has 88 storeys and 22 high-ceiling trading floors and qualifies as being extremely auspicious in Chinese culture. It is, however, short of the magic number, because "taboo floors" like 14th and 24th are omitted as being inauspicious – In Cantonese "4" is pronounced similarly to "death" . The highrise is designed to accommodate financial institutions. For example, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) is located at the 55th floor. It is equipped with advanced telecommunications, raised floors for flexible cabling management, and nearly column-free floor plans. The building expects to accommodate up to 15,000 people. It is one of relatively few buildings in the world equipped with double-deck elevators. The 55th, 56th, and the 77th to 88th floors were bought by the HKMA for US$480 million in 2001.

There are few restrictions on merchandise vending, and therefore even items such as realistic toy weapons are available. The two main shopping seasons are at Christmas and the Chinese New Year.

It is estimated that 26.8% of the population will be aged 65 or more in 2033, up from 12.1% in 2005. Hong Kong recorded 8.2 births per 1,000 people in 2005–2010. The current high population density means that a mass transit system capable of transporting large numbers quickly is required (Images 1, 3 show the travelator joining Central and Hong Kong stations). Equally high rise building is mandatory ( Image 2). One of the few quiet spots is the old police station and gaol ( Images 4 -7) which has been converted to an educational and arts area by the Jockey Club. @shashank5241
