hkskyline's Today in History Photo Thread

With coronavirus putting my travel plans to an abrupt halt, I've spent the past few months organizing my photos, reducing the editing backlog, and rediscovering on some wonderful memories. With a decent archive now, I will start a series of historic lookbacks on an irregular pattern to share.

On this day - July 16 in ...

2015 - Mumbai
My driver pulled into their new state-of-the-art airport. What an astronomical improvement from the old building. Impressive both land-side and air-side, the only let-down was the Business Class lounge, but that's a First World problem.



2018 - Rondane National Park, Norway
I drove past a few observation points along the eastern stretches of this park on the way back south from Trondheim. The mountains mixed with river scenes shone under the blue sky.



2019 - Taipei
After a busy day working, I was re-energized by a late snack at this outdoor night market, albeit under the intense summer heat. I won't have a complete dinner here though, but after getting gorged in fancy and classy food elsewhere, I saved a little room to top it up here.

2016 - Seoul
I went up the new Conrad hotel's bar on the 37th floor to check out the river view. This is a good place for a pre-dinner drink. Yeouido is one of the new business districts south of the river with a lower profile than nearby Gangnam.

2014 - Shanghai
Braving the intense 37C summer heat, I watched yet another supertall building go up in Shanghai's Pudong district. 1 more observation deck option to visit once it's done. There is no shortage of such in these few blocks.

2015 - Singapore
The Marina Bay Sands casino hoped to attract more tourists to the country, while slapping a huge entrance fee on locals to prevent them from gambling. Apparently, what's not good for Singaporeans is great for outsiders. Beyond the gambling, there are a number of higher-end restaurants on its rooftop deck, but many seem to be drawn by the infinity pool set against the skyline instead. So on a blue sky day, I decided to visit to enjoy lunch with a view.
