    This was one last bonus explore on my pretty epic trip to Hong Kong this last Summer. We were driving back to my sister-in-law's house when we were going through Kam Tin along the Kam Sheung Road and I spotted this place. "Quick stop Gordi" I shouted to my brother-in-law who was driving. The place in question was an abandoned retirement complex. A hole in the fence was spotted and I was in. No history about this place whatsoever. So straight on with the pictures...

    Oooo..this looks interesting!

    I spy a hole!

    At first the undergrowth is dense:

    But there's houses in there:

    ...amongst the foliage:

    And on to the row of flats:

    Inside the flats it's a mess:

    Dusty wooden furniture:

    Rusting bed-frames:

    Some are completely crammed with stuff the former residents just left behind:

    As nature knows on the door of these former pensioner flats:

    Some of the furniture is well-carved:

    Other furniture is of lesser merit:

    Obligatory rotting chair shot:

    ...and moldy mattress shot:

    Can't read the date on these newspaper sheets at one of the houses windowns:

    Nice find. Been to HK a few times and there seems to be quite a lot of abandoned buldings dotted around on the various islands away from the mainland.

    I'd been tempted to explore these abandoned overgrown places on past visits, but they were likely to be harbouring snakes (abundance in HK in rural areas) and various other creatures as it was the summer months (hot and dry) and that I was in shorts, t shirt and flip flops!
