This cargo depot in Sai Wan is a hotspot for Instagram check-ins – hence the name Instagram Pier. It’s known for its gorgeous sunset views and for its ‘Mirror of the Sky’ quality after a rainfall, when a thick layer of water creates a perfect reflection of the heavens.

This picturesque wooden pier was constructed in the 60s for nearby residents who swam into the channel, and is now popular with photographers, especially at dusk. The pier feels blissfully remote but it’s actually only 15 minutes away from Kennedy MTR station, just below Victoria Road.

Central Pier No. 9/No. 10

If you’re taking Hong Kong’s iconic Star Ferry from Central, you might as well drop by Piers 9 and 10. These public piers are docking points for private junks, which means they’re much less frequently used than the ferry-servicing piers and a great artistic hotspot.
