Not a long walk from residential and industrial towers, Brick Hill has a long staircase to several viewing areas.
Start off with a shrine visit, then continue up and up.
Photographers were already setting up for sunset. This spot faces west with Ap Lei Chau in the background. They still have some time to wait.
Looking towards the south, the ocean and islands await.
The trail becomes more rugged and staircases disappear until reaching the helipad, which opens up to the east. Ocean Park's cable cars pass below while you enjoy views of Repulse Bay and Stanley beyond.
A paved staircase leads further up to the telecommunications tower. The view isn't too much more different here so if you are tired, don't bother making this last stage.
Ap Lei Chau Bridge is the only vehicular link to the island, which is named after its narrow shape resembling a duck's tongue. While mainly a residential area, it is also famous for outlet shops and fresh seafood as fishing boats still gather in the typhoon shelter in front of the island.
