Kuk Po / 谷埔

Kuk Po is not far away from the north eastern corner of Hong Kong, along the shore of Starling Inlet. It is only accessible by boat or an hour walk from Luk Keng. Most villagers moved out because of the inaccessibility, left with only charm and food stalls serving casual hikers.

Ngau Tau Kok Market / 牛頭角街市

I went to this market and the cooked food centre for breakfast with a friend and instantly fall for its nostalgic and chaotic nature. The camera metering was failing a bit here (or it’s me failing), definitely need to revisit this place.

Kowloon Reservoir / 九龍水塘

Kowloon Reservoir was first completed in 1910, the first reservoir in “New Territories”. Today it is part of Kam Shan Country Park in Sha Tin District.

The main dam is one of the declared monuments along with other 4 structures at the reservoir. Its signature curved dam makes it special in Hong Kong and very easy to recognize.

Most of the macaques (monkeys) in Hong Kong reside in this area, do not bother them as they can be very offsensive, especially if you carry food. I was lucky to take a few shots at them, before they shouted at me.
