This is something unique in Hong Kong.
Neon signs everywhere jutting out onto the streets.
Different colors, designs, some vertical, some horizontal, some straight, some curved – all bright and lit up during the night.
Most of them are written in Chinese – only readable by those who know the language.
Neon signs used to be associated with vibrancy. Of course, we are a vibrant city – a city that never sleeps!
PS Photo the courtesy of my friend CP Chan.
Love the bright colors in the night.
I don’t have many night photos as I don’t go out that much at night!
Dear friend thanks for the information. Jeevan Verma

Another great photo/travel blog. I spent 8 years long, long ago in Hong Kong. The photo captures its sordid, crowded, vivacity perfectly – brings back memories.
Glad that it brings back some fond memories. Thank you, Claire!
Vibrant colors. Thanks for sharing.
Great to hear from you, glad that you like it!
The magic is that, at night, they appear to hang suspended in mid-air. (The other magic, for those of us who cannot read Chinese, is that we see instead pure design, with no intervening commercial message.)
Yes, they seem artistic designs suspending in the air – sometimes, it is good for not knowing the language! Regards, Michael
Fantastic night shot!
Glad that you like the photo!
Hong Kong has been on my travel wish list for DECADES. I’m looking forward to when we finally make it to Asia in a few years! 🙂
Wish you will make it here ; you will like it. Regards, Michael
