Ching Ming Festival- public holiday in Hong Kong

Today was public holiday in Hong Kong. It is called Ching Ming Festival and is an opportunity for celebrants to remember and honour their ancestors at grave sites.
They do many things on this day, but one thing that is very interesting is that they burn paper gifts for departed.
Anyway, of course we didn't celebrate this but walked around our neighborhood because streets were empty and it was nice and quiet for a change!
Here is the view around our neighborhood (from top of the hill). Nobody is around and you can kind of see water view between buildings...!
