Weekly Round-Up: Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong.



This weeks photograph was taken in Hong Kong and captures the stark difference between old and new that can be found there, and throughout the rest of China.

“When I first arrived in Hong Kong and saw incredible cityscapes, the bay, and wooded trees as far as the eye could see, I immediately knew this was a special place. While sitting at Tsim Sha Tsui and looking out over the bay, I saw this old-looking sailboat float past, and snapped a photo. Only later did I realize how it captures the mood of Hong Kong”.   — Reed Kleinman, Co-Owner of Smart Home Solver

I’d Like to thank Alysa & Reed for sharing this great image with me for this weeks cover.  Think this might be my desktop photo for a while!  As travellers, we often leave our homes empty for, sometimes, long periods.  Alysa & Reed have built a hugely informative site covering all the major brands of smart home technology!  Well worth a few minutes of your time to secure your most valuable possession!
