Photographer's Note: Hong Kong. Deep weathering, Taika [Hei Ling Chau (island)]

This is at the tram line, my guess is King's Road in North Point. Not sure what the demolished building on top of the cliff is. A similar view is here.

Could it be here?

i wonder if the "Taika" note was a mistype of Taikoo? Could be somewhere around Quarry Bay/Taikoo (similar terrain here) - this could be the bend in the road at Quarry bay (far background in my linked image). Or perhaps the bend that was in King's Road where today's Kornhill development straddles the road?
