Flashes from Hong Kong

Hong Kong is so many things - it's a major port, a financial center, the link between China and the world, and a major tourist and cruise ship destination.  It owes its existence to its fantastic natural harbor, but has long since gone beyond simply being a port city.  Contributor Jakublin created a memorable aerial video of this amazing metropolis on the great delta of the Pearl River, and the bird's eye views of the towering skyscrapers and the harbor will astound you.

Droneland 2018 - Hong Kong From Above

Droneland

Hong Kong was a British territory from the time of the First Opium War in 1842.  When the lease of the territory expired in 1997, Hong Kong was returned to  China, becoming a sem-autonomous region.  Contrary to some fears, the change of sovereignty did little to damage Hong Kong's importance as a world financial  center; most of its tallest buildings, for example, have been built since the handover.  In this video, top contributor Droneland gives us a spectacular drone tour of this magical port city.

Hong Kong 2018: Land of Gold

Droneland

As of November, 2018, Dubai had 187 buildings which were at least 150 meters (just under 500 ft.) tall.  New York City had considerably more - 267, to be exact.  That's a lot of tall buildings, until you consider that Hong Kong has 353 - a third again more.  It's pretty clear that Hong Kong is the most vertical place on earth in terms of the human-made landscape.  In this rather remarkable video by Droneland, you'll get a top-down look at this tribute to the power of humanity to shape its world.
