Hong Kong is one of the hottest vacation destinations in Asia. While there are many other activities to take up your vacation time, taking pictures is a must-do to save those awesome memories.
Here are 10 IG-worthy spots in the city that should be posted on your feed!
Nothing worthwhile is gained easily. This is a thought to keep in mind when going for a hike at Tai Mo Shan. It has an elevation of over 957-meters and proves to be a difficult hike. It is considered one of the highest peaks and mistiest mountains in Hong Kong.
The word Tai Mo actually means “foggy” when translated to English. While getting to the top is the main goal, the scenery during the hike to the peak is beautiful.

Even with the fast-paced city life Hong Kong has a lot of places full of traditional culture. Jumbo Kingdom is hard to miss thanks to its colorful Chinese Imperial Palace-inspired architecture.
It was established in October 1976 and has remained a Hong Kong icon since then. In fact, it still continues to be a favorite tourist attraction for both local and international crowds.
The most unusual places can be the best backgrounds for pictures. The South Perimeter road in Chek Lap Kok near the Airfield Ground Maintenance Building is one of the best locations. Here flights take off and the scenery looks exceptionally breathtaking during sunrise or sunset.
There may be a lot of cityscapes in Hong Kong but there are some little known places that are teeming with natural beauty.
Cape D’ Aguilar has all of the aesthetics and structures you need for that perfect shot. There are actually a number of spots to check out: a mock shrine, the lighthouse on the hill, a replica whale skeleton, rock formations, caves, and the seascape.

Victoria’s Peak is one of the most popular destinations for tourists. Also known as the highest point in Hong Kong, The Peak provides a breathtaking bird’s eye view of the city.
This Hong Kong tourist spot has an antique peak tram that transports visitors both up and down the mountainside. However, it is recommended to just take the tram going down since lines going up can get very long.

Amidst the busy city life, the Graham Street Wall Art is a dose of color for passersby. Local artists adorned the concrete buildings with their colorful and varied art. This makes it a popular place to take pictures as there are so many to discover and to explore.
If you have a lot of time to spare, it is a good place to go “art hunting.” You don’t know what amazing art will surprise you around the corner in this area.
There are a lot of stylish places in Hong Kong that will take your breath away. Sham Shui Po does this with its simplicity rather than grandiosity.
To get the amazing city view of Hong Kong, you’ll have to climb flights of stairs to get to the peak of a hill.
It takes around 15 to 20 minutes from Mei Ho House to get to the peak, but it is all worth it when you see the panoramic view of the buildings.
Hong Kong is a small place and there are a lot of people living in it. Densely packed neighborhoods are common around the city. The Monster Building is an example of this as it is a huge complex comprised of 5 connecting structures.
There is the Fook Cheong Building, Oceanic Mansion, Montane Mansion, Yick Fat Building, and Yick Cheong Building. It was initially built in the 1960s for lower income families.
In the middle of the bustling city, there is a garden that seems like its been frozen in time. The Nan Lian Garden is an ideal escape from the hectic, bustling city streets. This classical garden is actually connected to the Chi Lin Nunnery to the north. Behind it there is a sprawling mountain range.
The garden’s design is based on the Jiang Shou Ju Garden of the Tang Dynasty. This is a traditional landscape garden all the way in the Shanxi province. Those who want to meditate or relax can take a stroll in this garden.
