In the beautiful city of Hong Kong, you will find an array of spots that would make for great posts on Instagram such as the Choi Hung Estate, Lion Rock, Man Mo Temple and more.


Choi Hung Estate

This housing estate happens to be counted amongst the oldest in Hong Kong, but there is no doubt that it is an outstanding location for taking Instagram photographs. You will find that this iconic housing estate features eye-catching multi-coloured buildings that will capture the interest of the photographer. There are several good locations for snapping pictures here, but the finest would undoubtedly be the basketball court. Since this estate can become crowded with sightseers, you should visit very early in the morning if you desire to evade the masses.


Lion Rock

One of the appealing aspects of Hong Kong would be that it offers good opportunities for urban hiking. Ranked amongst the most outstanding hikes that could be enjoyed in the city would be Lion Rock. As you hike at this location, you will find that huge rocks can be seen amidst the greenery forming a shape like that of the head of a lion. When you reach the peak of the hill, you will have the opportunity to enjoy spectacular views over the city that can be seen from there which will make for great photographs. A choice of accommodation to consider from which Lion Rock could easily be visited would be Dorsett Mongkok which can be regarded as a well-located budget hotel in Hong Kong.


Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden

Although the visual vibrancy of the downtown area of Hong Kong may at times overwhelm the visitor, you will be able to find a respite from the urban environment at certain spots; one such place is at the Chi Lin Nunnery as well as the adjacent Nan Lian Garden. These two areas of greenery will offer plenty of opportunities for Instagram-worthy photos. You will see that these alluring spaces are situated on top of a hill and surrounded by blocks of apartments. You will find that the grounds at these sites are exquisite, with picturesque bonsai trees, pretty temples, courtyards and a shimmering golden pagoda located amidst the trees.


Man Mo Temple

Another great spot for Instagram shots would be the well-known Man Mo Temple. This shrine happens to be dedicated to the God of War and the God of Literature. When you step into this place of worship, it will be like entering a different world. You will notice coils of incense on the roof, filling the temple with their distinctive aroma. This site will provide you with the opportunity to snap intriguing photos of its entrancing interior and experience some local culture.
