A Beautiful, Color-Saturated Video Diary of Life in Hong Kong

Gregory Kane created this video as a 'farewell love letter' to the city he lived in for six years.

While frenetic time-lapse travel videos are all the rage these days, it's nice to ease into a mellower vibe for a change. Try Gregory Kane's So Long, My Hong Kong, a "farewell love letter" to the city he lived in for six years, with a nostalgic soundtrack to match: Nino Rota's "La Dolce Vita (Finale)" from Fellini's classic 1960 film. Watch full screen with headphones for an immersive, three-minute escape.
