I realize that this is probably only worth a comment, but I am not allowed to comment yet, so bear with my answer. Have you tried here: where-is-this.com ? –  Tor-Einar Jarnbjo May 8 '12 at 22:58

So which price is attached to this photo? In my opinion this question is off topic, unless it is embedded in question that expressed the desire to go there. –  andra May 9 '12 at 5:37

@Andra: I asked because I would like to visit this city in the future. Should I append that in the question? –  Mehper C. Palavuzlar May 9 '12 at 11:10

Definitely Hong Kong, with Victoria Peak in the background.

Most likely taken from somewhere around North Point - based on the angle I'd say from the top of one of the high-rise buildings in that area.

The original photo is posted on Flickr, although without any details of exactly where it was taken. The same photographer has some other fairly impressive similar photos as well!

TinEye says it's Hong Kong, and based on the scenery that does seem likely.

do they drive on the right or the left in Hong Kong? The picture shows driving on the left. –  Kate Gregory May 9 '12 at 0:02

@Kate: On the left. –  Jonik May 9 '12 at 0:16
    
@jpatokal: seems the TinEye query link leads to an expired search. Could you please add some kind of instruction to the link for others to reproduce the search? –  Jonas Aug 16 '13 at 6:58

Given the name of this image, I'd say it's Hong Kong:

EDIT

I checked with my friend who lives there, he believes it's overlooking Causeway Bay.
