Soar Above The Skyline

Hong Kong Aerial Photography Gallery

Less than 30% of Hong Kong is developed land. It is this 30% that almost everyone associates Hong Kong with – modern skyscrapers standing tall amidst a bustling city.

Fortunately, living in Hong Kong has made me realise how much there is to see beyond those tall buildings – country parks, beaches, hikes, and tiny islands.

It’s been a pleasure discovering these far edges of Hong Kong from an usually beautiful angle, aerial drone photography.
