Ng Hwee KhengThere is a trail behind the Disneyland park which gives a very spacious and clean view of the entire city landscape. While Disney may not be your thing, you might just find something worth shooting behind the park, it is one of the quietest places in Hong Kong island. Oh yes they play classical music in the Disneyland hotel garden too.2 weeks ago   ·  1
