Wilson Trail Section 3

Which spot affords such a view?  

My daughter A and I were looking east towards the Victoria Harbour, from the Wilson Trail Section 3.  It starts near Yau Tong (油塘).  Here you can see the tiny Sam Ka Chuen (三家村避風塘) Typhoon Shelter, right next to Lei Yue Mun (鯉魚門). 

Across the harbour, you can also see the larger Shau Ki Wan 筲箕灣 Typhoon Shelter. 

Turning to the east, another tiny Chai Wan Typhoon Shelter.

Beyond the eastern entrance to Victoria Harbour, one can see the island Tung Lung Chau 東龍洲. 

Moving onto Kowloon, the giant Tseung Kwan O 將軍澳 (Junk Bay) garbage dump and the skyscrapers sitting on the landfills.  It reminds me of the slums around the giant garbage dump at Stung Meancheay in Phnom Penh in Cambodia.  The difference, of course, is that one apartment here in Junk Bay is worth more than a whole village in Stung Meancheay. 

Junk Bay itself is now a big town with 400,000 people. 

Further along the Wilson Trail, one can see, in the west, the quarry on Anderson Road.  

Soon afterwards, we arrived at Tseng Lan Shue (井欄樹) in Sai Kung.
