Hong Kong is one of the world's most popular tourist destinations, where you'll find forest-covered mountains, hiking trails, beautiful beaches, mouth-watering dim sum and an impressive skyline. It’s a photographer's paradise and the ideal place to step up your Instagram feed and get some striking shots.
Here are some of the most famous Instagrammable spots in Hong Kong that are worth checking out, whether you're just visiting or there for a longer time.
This eye-catching 4 story house in the Wan Chai area was built in the 1920s and gets its name, Blue House, from its bright and vivid exterior. It was recently given an award of excellence by UNESCO for cultural heritage conservation and became a living museum, a space that hosts activities such as art exhibitions and cultural workshops. A mixture of Chinese and Western historic architectural features allows you to travel back in time and will give your feed a little retro feel with no filters.
Location: Blue House, 72-74A Stone Nullah Lane, Wan Chai, Hong Kong, 灣仔石水渠街72-74A號
Lok Wah South Estate
Let your creativity flow at one of the most photographed places in Hong Kong, a children’s playground on top of a multi-story car park. The blue-colored play area creates an illusion of infinite loops, perfect for playing with the lighting and filling up your feed with edgy and aesthetically pleasing shots.
