Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. More than 7 million inhabitants live in just 1,113 square kilometers. The city is also considered to have one of the highest living costs in the world. So it is not surprising that Hong Kong is also one of the cities that has the most high-rise buildings, where people live and work in a very small space.

There are areas in the city where you only see a small PIECE OF HEAVEN when you’re walking down the streets as a pedestrian. You can only get a view from the top.

In the labyrinth of one of these concrete deserts, after a few detours and wrong turns, I discovered this hidden basketball court.

The playground with a basketball field, several tennis courts and other areas for ball games is built on the entire roof of a huge 2-storey car park, offering the numerous residents the opportunity to see a little more of the sky while doing recreational sports in the gigantic residential complex.

This picture was taken on March 10th, 2017 during my trip to Hong Kong.
