How Vancouver is this?

Price Tags editor-in-chief Gordon Price, on his last day in Hong Kong (en route to Tokyo for a study tour with SPUR), captures a brazenly familiar perspective of the city and mountains.

Although elevations are off — these mountain peaks tend to reach just 50-60% of the height of our North Shore Mountains, while the building heights can easily double the majority of their tallest cousins across BC’s Lower Mainland — the mix of urbanity and nature is pretty familiar.

That said, today’s images and commentary (of Gordon’s yesterday) throw together some marked contrasts between Hong Kong and Vancouver.
