(9) Lau Shui Heung Reservoir 流水響水塘

Lau Shui Heung Reservoir–also known as the Karuizawa in Hong Kong–is the place to visit if you want to be surrounded by these colors during your pre-wedding shoot. This place is popular during autumn for this very reason, but did you know this location is just as beautiful when all the trees are green? Whichever season, this place is well worth your while! Note that parking is limited here, so plan your transportation accordingly.
