READY, JETTY, GO

GRACE BAUDY, our fea­tured pho­tog­ra­pher, goes hunt­ing for Hong Kong’s most-snapped mini pier

#Legend - - #HOMEKONG -

IT’S MORE OF a swim­ming shed, but it's been pho­tographed so of­ten it's earned it­self the nick­name In­sta­gram Pier. “It's sup­pos­edly one of the rarest ones re­main­ing in Hong Kong, dat­ing back to the 1950s,” Grace tells #leg­end. Armed with her cam­era, she took the MTR to Kennedy Town, then a short minibus ride (num­ber 58) to the lo­ca­tion. “I had to shout to the driver as I ap­proached my stop, nearly miss­ing it as there wasn't any clear in­di­ca­tion, just a white sign in Chi­nese – and I can't read Chi­nese, un­for­tu­nately,” she re­calls. A long flight of stairs takes you down to a green swim­ming shed, where you'll see the now-iconic jetty. A few mosquito bites sus­tained, sure – but over­all, a worth­while ex­pe­di­tion.
