I found a $500 round-trip ticket from San Francisco and took an impulsive trip to Hong Kong. On arrival, I captured 100 one-second shots in one day for a unique visual of this amazing city.

Shot on the Sony a7S and the DJI Phantom 3 4K.

A few highlights and traveling tips for visiting Hong Kong:

The Peak//

Take the tram to witness the stunning 360-degree panoramic view across Hong Kong 428 meters above sea level.

On a clear day, you will experience one of the most spectacular views in the world; but you will also find major crowds. Be sure to take one of the first or last trams up to beat the lines.

Dragon’s Back Trail//

Enjoy the amazing views on the 8.5km path rolling along the ridges from Shek O Peak to Wan Cham Shan. In high heats, this hike can be pretty brutal, but the views are worth the sweat.

OZONE//

This is the highest bar in the world with one of the best vantages of the city. Located on the 118th floor of the Ritz-Carlton in West Kowloon, you can feel the altitude while sipping on your favorite beverage.

W Hong Kong WET® Outdoor Heated Pool//

One of the world’s highest rooftop swimming pools can be found on the 76th floor of this very hip hotel.

Expo Promenade//

Enjoy a blissful walk with the most amazing harbor views of Kowloon Bay. The sunset views are spectacular.
