Hong Kong

These are some shots I took on a recent trip to Hong Kong. I was the Owner’s rep for a large ferry contract for the new Casino up there and the Purple Ferries being unloaded off the ship were the last of a 14 vessel order.

MS_CT St2
It is the largest ferry order ever!! These boats travel at 42 knots with 411 passengers and get to Macau from Hong Kong in 1 hour.

HK Lazer Show

The night shot is of the lazer show that happens every night. Taken from Kowloon side looking to Hong Kong. Some unusually clear skies whilst I was there.

The Peak Hong Kong

The other shot was taken from the Peak and once again, very clear by normal standards.

      Hi Rod,

      Thanks for the comments and the link. I will reciprocate for sure when I get some time later today.

      Hong Kong is a great place and I have spent a lot of time there over the last 20 years.

      Macau is even more spectacular now that the new Venetian is almost complete. When they finish stage 5&6 they will have 18,000 hotel rooms!! It is the second largest under cover building in the world, only to the Pentagon I think!

      Cheers,

      Mark

    HongKong at night from Kowloon or from the 'Peak' is simply awesome.
    I also second what stacky said re your wordpress header.
