Big cities around the world all have an unmistakable energy—which happens when you stack people on top of more people—that makes them unique and yet similar all at once. There’s a constant buzz around the city and there are different layers to the life there. Here’s what it’s like in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong bartender Rajendra Limbu is bringing the intoxicating effects of high art to the more pedestrian world of alcohol with cocktails that take influence from Vincent Van Gogh, Salvador Dalí, and Piet Mondrian.
Because of the city’s history and because of its unique geography and because of the towering buildings and because of the cramped quarters and because of all the greenery nearby and because of the water pushed up against the city, Hong Kong is a pretty magnificent place to photograph. Taking pictures of what’s above…
Hong Kong is now home to the newest and neatest McDonald’s around. Say hello to McDonald’s Next, the McDonald’s of the future.
In Hong Kong, finding the space to bury the dead is a huge ongoing problem. New, unconventional projects are springing up to meet demand–giving us a glimpse at the future of burial in the hyper-dense cities.
Hong Kong and Singapore are both bustling international cities of the future that, depending where you are in the city, can almost make you feel like you could be anywhere in the world. Here's a tour of both cities (or city-state, or special administrative region) in one. I love the split view looks at them.
These time-slice photographs of Shanghai and Hong Kong are beautifully unreal. In each photo, photographer Dan Marker-Moore captures an entire day of those amazing cities from one vantage point. You see day shift into night, sunlight giving way for city lights and it all adds up for photos that looks absolutely…
Feeling bored? You need a store that sells ridiculous, confusing products that probably shouldn't even exist. Let me introduce you to one of my favorite online retailers: Dealextreme.
It's one of the internet's largest purveyors of cheap tablets, obscure cables and amazing off-brand oddities.
It's a wonderful sensation when you encounter something you've seen countless times before, only from a different vantage point. The electric glow of neon signs is familiar in all big cities around the world, but seeing them from the vantage point of photographer Rainer Torrado lends them an entirely new shape.
Drone delivery is inherently dangerous—regardless of how excited companies like Amazon are getting about the idea, the thought of airborne robots weaving in between skyscrapers and over cars is downright unnerving. That's why it took months of preparation for a group of hobbyists to stage Hong Kong's first drone…
Dozens of Hong Kong motorists and pedestrians rushed to grab loads of money after an armored truck's doors opened by accident on a busy road, spilling about 4.5 million US dollars in HK$500 notes (US$65) on Christmas Eve, reports the South China Morning Post. Check out all those frantic bastards.
Hong Kong is one of those crazy future cities in the world where buildings kiss the sky and people are stacked on top of people and streets hide alleys which hide labyrinths which hide awesome. It's great. It's also great for climbing to the top of a skyscraper to hijack a billboard. These guys proved that.
The good fight for freedom and democracy against Beijing's dictatorial regime continues in Hong Kong, where protesters keep flooding the streets in massive demonstrations. This photo published by Hong Kong Democracy Now is an impressive look into one. Here are some more from the ground.
By 2025, the biggest cities in the world will not only be bigger, but exceptionally denser. According to a new study, Hong Kong will be the densest megacity on the planet, almost twice as crowded as the runner up. And here in the U.S.—and this might be a real shocker—Los Angeles may be more dense than New York City.
One of the coolest things about Hong Kong—one of the great cities of the world that feels a lot like living in the future, for better or worse—is the bustling city's relationship with the picturesque nature that surrounds it. You get a glimpse of that in this video by Billy Boyd Cape.
I've seen many coldblooded daredevils climbing skyscrapers and towers, but this is the first time I've seen someone having a picnic up there—The Centre skyscraper in Hong Kong, 1,135 feet (346 meters) above the ground. I couldn't avoid gasping when photographer Daniel Lau lifted his camera above him and his friends.
Hong Kong's metro puts others to shame: It's one of the most profitable subways in the world. It's on time 99.9 percent of the time. It's always improving—and it's controlled by some very clever artificial intelligence.
This time-lapse was shot earlier this week in Hong Kong during a demonstration in support of democracy. It shows thousands of protesters walking down one of the main streets of the city in what seems an endless flood of people.
