Dragon Boat festival at DBay

  • Jun 23, 2012 · 7:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

One of HK's best kept secrets: we don't have to travel all the way to Tai O or battle the crowds at Stanley to shoot some exciting, action-packed dragon boat races. Apart from the races, there's also cheerleading competitions, bazaars, games, etc. We'll meet at 7:45am Discovery Bay Ferry pier in Central to take the 7:50am ferry. Ticket fare is HK$34 one way. Or you can meet us at McDonald's in DBay at 8:20am. Jo-Ann our co-organiser will meet us there. Bring your filters (the water can be glaring), long lens (if you have one), and tripods.

Once in DB we can break up individually or into small teams and regroup later for lunch.

    Hi, I was on the way on MTR and realised that I've left something important at home, had to turn back and I couldn't make it on time. Hope to see you guys all next time.

    Ok, I will not wear my mini skirt.

    WARNING! Someone asked about this privately but I thought I'd mention it here: Sand flies can be a problem in DB especially on the beach so if you have sensitive skin avoid shorts or mini-skirts

    or you can catch the next ferry back to Central when you feel you have enough shots.

    BTW, the races begin 8:00am and last until 6:00pm but based on my experience there's more to shoot in the morning during the elimination races when the teams are all still fresh and energetic in their bright coloured uniforms and costumes. Access for photographers is virtually unlimited (you can go anywhere and shoot anything) You can plan on staying the whole day if you feel like it
