This photo was taken from the summit of The Peak in Hong Kong. This area is certainly worth the admission fee, with an incredible view. However, due to the cityscape, it is certainly a popular area.
If you are intending taking a few shots from this area, I would certainly recommend bringing a monopod or if you can get away with it a tripod. I was lucky to get a spot to take the shot above before a few eager beavers jostled their way into my personal space , I knew then that getting any more stable shots would be near impossible.
Also, the area is quite dimly lit so if you need to change a CF card, having a torch would be very much recommended.
