Beautiful HKUST Campus : Scenic Morning Stroll

There are a few special advantages to studying with HKUST that have nothing to do with academics and research. There’s little doubt in my mind that the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology has a campus with the most gorgeous scenery I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen quite a few universities. On a clear October day, it doesn’t get much better than this.

And so, going down from the university apartments to the terrific outdoors swimming pool for a swim one morning, I test-drove a new mobile phone I got to see how well it would do to capture the beauty of that morning (Acer Liquid E). It came out fantastic, so I think it’s worth sharing with you…
