DRONE VIDEO: Hong Kong From Above

By Sophie Pettit 16 July 2015
Ever had that wonderful dream where you suddenly find yourself with the ability to fly and go soaring through the sky on an epic adventure? Well, we can't give you the gift of flight, but we can show you how it might feel to have such a superpower, thanks to this stunning new video from Swiss movie maker Stephane Ma. Shot with a GoPro and DJI Phantom 3 Pro, the clip beautifully captures the natural side of Hong Kong that is so often overlooked in our built up city. A quick flight over lush, green forests, tranquil fishing villages, and sandy beaches soon reminds us of the diverse natural landscapes we are lucky to have on our doorstep. "I made this video because I wanted to show a different side of Hong Kong," Ma tells us. "I wanted to show how beautiful it is is and how it's actually really easy to escape this hectic city and end up surrounded by nature just minutes from all these skyscrapers. "Most of the drone videos I've seen of Hong Kong are filmed inside the city so I thought (after searching on IG, Flickr and Google maps) I should use my drone to film some of the beautiful scenery surrounding the city." Nature rules! Now who fancies a hike?
