Spotting Of HKG Checkerboard Possible?

Sun Aug 18, 2013 11:58 pm


I am a flight dispatcher for a major US airline, and I am taking my route qual ride to Hong Kong in October (via Sydney, Australia).

Is it still possible to get close to the old HKG Checkerboard hill? I never had the chance to fly into Kaitak, and I want to get some pictures of it. I've found it, and it looks close to the Lok Fu MTR Station, but is it accessible?

I have 81 hours in HKG, been there three times.

I believe it is possible to get close to the place, have a look at the following link, it'll show you the surrunding area.
Back in China now. Camera used: Nikon D70 D50 D200 D40 FUJI S3 PRO Canon 400D. Now with Nikon D7000.
