Walking Tour: Dusk

I didn't have time to photograph a proper walking tour this week. I spent nearly 12 hours on Saturday in a coffee shop for the Nanowrimo Write-athon, and I just didn't get my act together on Sunday. It was already getting dark when I got out of work yesterday, but fortunately that is one of my favorite times in Hong Kong. So instead of a walking tour, here are some shots of the city at dusk


I started out in Grand Millennium Plaza just before the light started to change.


The sky above the high-rises was already starting to look dusty when I popped into Subway for dinner.


It's right by this fountain, which is featured in the film Don't Go Breaking My Heart (a great Mandarin and Cantonese chick flick)


By the time I left, the sky was a musty purple.


But this is when the lights started to come on.


I walked by the office buildings on Queen's Road...


...one of the entrances to the Sheung Wan Markets...


...and the Central Oasis.


By this time the sky was changing to a mild blue.


The city lights began to stand out against the sky.


I climbed onto The Escalator during rush hour.


And snapped pictures of the people below returning home from work.


You can see all sorts of things from the Escalator.


The advertisers take full advantage of this.


There are a lot of changes and renovations going on in this area.


They already moved the used bookstore, but I hope the Dymocks stays nearby.


I read that some of the market stalls are going to be moved away too.


That's sad, but I do like the fact that Hong Kong is always changing.


I went out after dark to join my Nanowrimo friends at a coffee shop...


And walked toward the busy night lights near Lan Kwai Fong.

I hope you enjoyed these pictures of one of my favorite times in Hong Kong. Come back next week for a walking tour of the Cat Street antique markets. For more Hong Kong walking tours check out the tab at the top of the page and the links in this post.

Have a good week everyone!

  1. I love these photos and the fountain in Don't Go Breaking My Heart! Although I only really spent one summer hanging out in Lan Kwai Fong, I have many fond memories walking around Central at night and these photos bring that back. I hope NaNiWriMo continues to go well. No matter how much you write, it's so worthwhile.

  2. It's nice to walk with you in Hong Kong via your pictures. Hope to see it in person in 1-2 years.
