Scrolling across Instagram this basketball court/estate is pretty popular. It has easily become one of Hong Kong’s most Insta-grammable destinations. Normally I get a bit disappointed with destinations that are popular on Instagram. Usually they are over crowded and look nothing like Instagram. Choi Hung Estate however was doesn’t have to crowded and was just as stunning as Instagram. Guide to Choi Hung Estate is Below.
Below Guide to Choi Hung Estate
Probably the most important. You will want to take the MTR Subway. Hong Kong’s Metro is super easy to navigate. Your finally destination is Choi Hung MTR Station. You will know you are at the right station as the stop is rainbow themed as well. Once you exit the subway follow exit signs for C4 or Choi Hung Estate. Walk into the Estate and turn left which takes you to the parking lot. The colorful basketball court is at the top of the parking garage.
This is a great budget activity as entering the courts are free. If you take the metro you are looking at $1-$3.
How to Shoot Here
You are going to want to get here early. We arrived at 8AM and there was only one other person taking photos. Their were locals working out so if you really want no people aim to get here at sunrise. The best angle is right in front of the basketball court. I had a tripod set low to the ground facing at an angle up.
What to Know
Like I mentioned the “Estate” is public and the court is a recreational center of sorts for the locals. Be respectful and wait patiently for your turn. The Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden are both within walking distance and free.
