HK URBEX, a group of anonymous explorers, presents a side of Hong Kong that “only a specialist minority” know about.
The group travelled through crevices, hidden portals, barbed-wire fences, and some times they evaded security guards and infiltrated derelict structures into places in the city, including haunted schools, old crime scenes and condemned buildings.
“Although the city has some of the most expensive property on the planet, an unknown world awaits beyond the shimmering skyscrapers and under the glitzy malls. This is the hidden kingdom of non-spaces: environments and structures that lie fallow, usually abandoned and left to rot, or suspended in limbo awaiting evictions and demolition,” an introduction for their new book Spatial Cemetery: A Journey Beneath the Surface of Hidden Hong Kong read.
Spatial Cemetery: A Journey Beneath the Surface of Hidden Hong Kong can be purchased via Blacksmith Books.
