Quarry Bay Park

This quiet waterfront park in Quarry Bay offers a gorgeous view of East Kowloon across the harbor. As one of the city’s lesser-known parks, it’s relatively uncrowded and your shot won’t be obstructed by hordes of passersby.

Western District Public Cargo Pier (aka Instagram Pier)

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.

Montane Mansion

Montane Mansion is a block of five densely-packed residential buildings in Quarry Bay. Built back in the 60s, this exemplifies Hong Kong’s tight urban architecture. Captured from below, the constrictive architecture is somehow uniquely alluring.

Sai Wan Swimming Shed

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.

The Peak

Last but not least, the observation deck at the The Peak offers a panorama of the city from its highest vantage point. If you want to get that iconic snap of densely-packed skyscrapers foregrounding Victoria Harbor, this is the place to do it.
