These Hong Kong-based Instgram accounts really make us love and appreciate the 852.

Love to explore Hong Kong? Then check out @daniel_lau. As well as taking selfies on top of skyscrapers, he likes to showcase less common views, such as abandoned places and construction sites. His rooftop pictures are so cool and the scenery is simply wonderful. He always likes to step out of his comfort zone and try something new.

You can’t beat @angushui74, a dancer. I love to dance, so I’ll always watch anything dance-related. Every time I see his videos, I want to get up and move. There is no better way to bring you strength and energy.

I really enjoy @hkfoodlog.rm because it shows the delicious food available in Hong Kong. I love to eat, and I always want to try dishes I’ve never eaten before. The account has taught me a lot more about food in Hong Kong, so I will go and try some of those dishes when I am free.

What’s something you’re bad at, but wish you could do well?

I love @mannerproduction, where a team of actors makes funny videos. When I watch their posts, I forget about all the bad things that happened to me during the day. The actors also post photos and share jokes with their fans. It’s so entertaining

I really like @explore_hongkong because it highlights a wide range of local food and tourist attractions. It is a great reflection of Hong Kong’s traditions and lifestyle, which we should really appreciate.
Teresa Kwok, 15, South Island School

The @hkartion account features lots of fascinating posts, mainly watercolour paintings, while providing information about local art exhibitions and events. I find the images fascinating and also think the account helps me to appreciate art.

What’s the most helpful study tip you’ve learned?

My favourite account is @ltpss_eng, which it is all about the English language. It shares common typos, as well as funny English memes and tips for studying. It’s a way to have fun while learning English. So convenient!
Jenny Fung, 14, Law Ting Pong Secondary School

Definitely @harimaolee. He boasts an array of photos from bird’s eye views to lesser-known places in Hong Kong. His photography skills are mind-blowing. I can hardly take my eyes off the images!
Kwok Po-kiu, 12, Maryknoll Fathers’ School

The posts on @hk.dict feature trendy words that teenagers use in their daily lives. Some of the posts are also very funny. I really look forward to checking out the account when I have some free time.

What’s the best job in the world?

It’s got to be @jojoeie1702! This Instagram account is packed with drawings that reflect Hong Kong’s social conditions. The drawings are funny and the words are simple. Almost everyone can relate to the account because it highlights what happens in our everyday lives. It’s really touching and relatable.
