I have come across this cityscape on the web and I wonder what city it is. Does anyone know?

    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: I asked because I would like to visit this city in the future. Should I append that in the question? Commented May 9, 2012 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. Commented May 9, 2012 at 0:02

    @Kate: On the left.

  • @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 Copy the URL of the photo into Tineye. You can also use Google reverse image search.

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

EDIT

I checked with my Kiwi friend who lives in Hong Kong; he believes it's overlooking Causeway Bay.
