Hong Kong: One Place, Two Perspectives [Video]


The Hong Kong Tourism Board has partnered with National Geographic to promote Hong Kong's 10th annual “Great Outdoors” campaign featuring 13 of the city’s most stunning landscapes. Visitors to Hong Kong will discover some of Hong Kong’s most picturesque nature trails through the contrasting lenses of National Geographic photographers Matthew Paley and Tugo Cheng, and trail expert Wyan Chow Pui-yan, as part of HKTB's campaign: "One Place, Two Perspectives.”

This innovative partnership celebrates one of Hong Kong's greatest secrets: its stunning natural beauty. Three-quarters of Hong Kong’s landmass is actually countryside, and the vast network of hiking trails is easily accessible from any corner of the city. The Great Outdoors campaign showcases imagery of city views with verdant mountains; traditional villages with natural flora and fauna, and beautiful landscapes with stunning seascapes, presenting Hong Kong as a jaw-dropping, breathtaking visual dichotomy. 

Paley has lived in Hong Kong for nine years and is intimately acquainted with the city’s natural landscape. In coordination with the campaign, Paley captured dynamic video of Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark’s majestic volcanic rock columns on land as well as the park’s mesmerizing aqua waters.
