Sunset Peak, Hong Kong

Hong Kong may move at a blistering pace, but at this scenic spot on Lantau Island, photographer MICHELLE CLOUGH finds serenity.

Lantau Island, Hong Kong

Atop Sunset Peak, high above the South China Sea, Hong Kong is deceptively calm and cool during winter months.
At 869 meters above sea level, this green escape on Lantau Island is the perfect perch to watch the world go by: distant ferries plying the waters between Hong Kong and Macau; aircraft gliding into and out of the nearby airport. But the more immediate surroundings are all natural—rocky outcrops bursting through the sweeping hills, a reminder that most of Hong Kong is parkland. —MICHELLE CLOUGH
