Photographer's Note

This photo was taken at a small pier in the North Point district of Hong Kong Island.

The sampans in Hong Kong provide a less formal and more convenient mode of transport, but sometimes you need to be careful when boarding them.

In the background is the eastern side of the Kowloon peninsula.

Up until 1997, the buildings in Kowloon had to be much lower because of the old Kai Tak airport, but since then new skyscrapers have been 'sprouting up'.

The tallest building on the 'new skyline' is the International Commerce Center (ICC). It is currently the world's fourth tallest building as well as the tallest building in Hong Kong.

To the right of the photo are the 2 ferry piers at Hung Hom.

This view is only 2 streets away and 2 minutes away from this view, "China Life dot Hong Kong".
