Where in the World (317)

There are few cities with such a high density of skyscrapers as pictured here. What few there are mostly in Asia which narrows down the possibilities somewhat. The prominent high rise building at the top of the distorted photograph is a fairly distinctive shape. Some recognised the body of water that is visible in the distance as Victoria Harbour. The city is Hong Kong.

Hong Kong

Congratulations to Davide (@travelling_dave), Tim (@timofnewbury), Todd (@toddunctious), Atul (@pixodentist), Janette (@travchats), Jackie (@JackiesJourneys) and someone from Global Grapevine (@globalgrapevine) who all identified the city as Hong Kong.

The distorted image for this week is a city skyline seen from across one of its two rivers. Good luck in your identification process.

Try this quiz

How good is your knowledge of the cities of the world? Judging by the number of cities my readers identify correctly from distorted photographs some of you know them pretty well.

I have created a quiz of a different kind which I thought you might try. It’s a picture quiz but the photographs are not distorted.

Can you identify a city by a single statue?

Travel Quiz: Statues will take you only a few minutes. It starts with some easy ones and becomes more challenging towards the end. Give it a go and let me know what you think.

“Where in the World…” will continue to be posted each week as usual. Travel Quiz: Statues is the first in an occasional (very occasional) series of quizzes on travel themes.
