Hong Kong/Macau/Singapore in 96 hours
I had to go to a conference for work in Singapore (such a rough life!), so I decided to make a mini tour of it with a 48 hour layover in Hong Kong and a few hours in Macau.
Lots of photos, sorry about that!
First off, Hong Kong
First meal in Hong Kong, fresh from 26 hours of flights and layovers. So good and so cheap (~$4 US. beer included) From an stall down a random alley in Kowloon.
Porsche #23453543534 I saw while in HK.
Occupy Hong Kong, housed under the HSBC headquarters. Employees and Occupiers seem to be friendly, unlike in the US.
The view from Victoria Peak
Beef Balls (much better than it sounds)
Haiphong Road Temporary Market (where 'temporary' means 30 years and counting)
Night time light show (handheld with 3200ISO, I really should have brought my tripod)
Alleyway street market in Central
'Soy sauce western' breakfast
Awesome soy sauce western dai pai dong (road side food stall)
Guy wearing a metal hat. Apparently tin foil is not strong enough.
Tim Ho Wan. World's cheapest Michelin starred restaurant
Crispy pork buns. SO, SO GOOD!
Touristy shots of Central Hong Kong
Macau - only spent about 2 hours here but wish I had had more time to check it out.
Ruins of St Paul's
Being that guy and taking photos behind the wedding photographer for a couple who were just married
Then on to Singapore!
Buddha Tooth Relic Temple
Maxwell Road Hawker's Market. When in doubt, follow the line
Chicken Rice, the national dish of Singapore. Not a huge fan of the chicken but the rice was soooooooo good!
Makansutra's Gluttons Bay (probably the Ritziest hawker's market but so worth it!)
Best. Fried. Rice. Ever. (I would kill for another plate of this stuff. Seriously.)
Light show at the Marina Bay Sands. (I found a place to rest my camera and with the help of a book made a makeshift tripod setup.)
A very cool photo exhibit of the old Supreme Court on display at the Asian Civilization Museum. These photos really help inspire me to keep working to improve my urban exploration photography.
NO WAY OUT.
You know you're staying at a high end hotel when... (Note: I was not staying at this hotel.)
Classic shot of downtown Singapore with the Merlion
Marina Bay Sands. ("It looks like 3 tall towers with a cruise ship sitting on top of all 3 towers.")
Fancy infinity pool on the top of the Marina Bay Sands
A short study of lighting - taken from the top of the Marina Bay Sands
wait for it...
wait for it...
Thanks for checking these out. I wish I had had more time to check more of all three countries on my trip but with only 8 days, and 4 of those lost to my conference and flying to/from I had to fit in as much as I could. I think I did a pretty good job. I can't wait to go back since I loved both places more than words can describe.
