Turn over a new leaf this season with a revitalizing escape to Hong Kong. The concrete skyline and busy streets are ripe with breathtaking sights, outdoor adventure, and quiet moments of rapture. There's no better way to see the city’s magic than through the lens of photographer, Vincent Cuk, who takes sightseeing to a whole new level.
What does a sightseer need in Hong Kong to capture the perfect shot? “I never leave home without my iPhone. I always take my drone with me too. I go to open places to fly it and explore the city from a new perspective,” Vincent shares. Also included in his day bag: sunglasses, an iPad mini, a Monocle travel guide, an adaptor, and Bluetooth earphones.
Once you’ve assembled the necessities for the day, pack them in something sturdy and durable, crafted with impeccable and efficient design details. Vincent chooses a sleek double pocket leather backpack from Salvatore Ferragamo. The external pockets offer easy access to frequently called upon essentials. The Italian leather craft will withstand the trials of any trip.
Kick off your adventure with a morning hike. Hong Kong Island is lined with winding nature trails that offer endless picture perfect moments. The glimpse ofquant fishing villages,perfect beaches, and boat-clad bays from above may inspire your next move: a trip to Ma Wan Tung Wan Beach. “The beautiful seascape and the view of the Tsing Ma Bridge are really magnificent. You can even walk to the flat ground under the bridge to catch a photo and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city,” says Vincent.
After your eat, head to “Western District Public Cargo Working Area, which is called ‘Instagram Pier’ by many people in Hong Kong. It’s an excellent place to shoot photos and watch sunsets. You can enjoy the beautiful view of the town on this pier, which is located on the west side of Hong Kong Island,” Vincent shares.
