For the LOVE of Avios: Images of A Fragrant Harbour

Hong Kong 3: For the LOVE of Avios! With Swiss and British Airways
Images of a Fragrant Harbour


To be honest, I’m still not at full writing speed even as we enter the Christmas break period. But hey, I’ll try and tell my journey through the power of photography.

Hong Kong is a city of diversity and culture that is rare to find in the world, but there are lots of things to see – if you open your eyes and look around.  Here are but a few things I saw on my travels….

Walking around Shenug Wan – a ubiquitous Red and White Taxi rushing past

Meat Counters in Sham Shui Po.

Markets near Sham Shui Po

… and of course, electronics!

The Bank of China (left)  and the Hong Kong Shanghai Bank buildings (Right)

Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower – Kowloon

Star Ferry crossing to Wan Chai, Hong Kong Island lit up for “A Symphony of Lights”

The Bank of China Building – lit up in its bamboo style elements.

Cheongsam’s on sale at Temple Street

Phone ornaments by the bucketload

Ding Dings… doing their DingDing things.

Except this one that wants to do it Wednesday Style. Psy reference anyone? (Racing at the Happy Valley)

A Street of many steps.. .and seemingly many wedding couples

Star Ferry Leaving at night

I hope you’ve enjoyed this off the ball segment of “For the LOVE of Avios” – showing that there is a bit more to the the frequent flying game than just jumping on the plane.

Sometimes, on a mileage run, or a short trip, we forget to look around us and see the world around us.
