Cheung Chau (長洲) & Austin Mountain (太平山) - Hong Kong (Part 9)

In the month of December in 2013, I took a trip to China to visit relatives and to travel places and take photos. On this trip, I visited Jiangsu (江苏), Anhui (安徽), Hong Kong (香港), and Macau (澳门). I took many photos on this trip and I will be splitting them into many parts. I will do my best in these blog post to describe the photos, however due to the lack of map data for China (on Google) and my horrible Chinese, I may not be able to give you too much details on certain things. At the time of visit, the smog in China is very heavy. In many of the photos, you will see what looks to be fog or haze, but it is the smog (pollution) in China. Be warned, that the pollution in China is not at safe levels. I started coughing less than one week into the trip, and I did not recover until the beginning of March this year (2014). Many individuals in China had the same cough I got. If you haven't done so, you can view my vlogs here. I already posted all my vlogs (of the entire trip) on Youtube, but these photos will come out in parts.

12/2013,我去中国旅游。我去了江苏、安徽、香港、和澳门玩。我会把照片分成很多部分。我的中文没有那么好,我不能翻译所有的东西。 我去中国的时候有很大的雾霾。我咳嗽咳了好几个月。我这次旅游也拍了一些视频,你可以在这里看。

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To view my best Hong Kong photos from this trip, use this link. To view all of my photos from 2013 China trip, use this link.

Here is Part 9 of Hong Kong. The photos for today are from Cheung Chau Island (長洲) and Austin Mountain (太平山). I have photos from The Peak Tram and Victoria Peak. Hope you enjoy.

Cheung Chau Island (長洲) is an island in Hong Kong that has no cars. People either walk or ride a bike for transport on the island. The only cars on the island is for emergency use (police, ambulance).

今天的照片都是在長洲岛和太平山上拍的。

First off, street photography shot from Cheung Chau (長洲)! Here is a photo of a store owner at a market place in the island.

Now off to Austin Moutain (太平山) at The Peak Tram (the ride up to Victoria Peak). The US consulate only right across the street. Couldn't help but get a few photos of the crazy protest on the US that is going on there... LOL
