    Bellagio Pics

    I too am a Bellagio, Sham Tseng convert. Here are some pics taken with our tiny camera.

    A pictures is worth a thousand words.

    Great views Skyhook, no offense, but I just dont like the sight of other appartments roofs and windows....reminds me of my South Horizons years

    Larac's 1st and 2nd pictures are what I face from all windows of my apartment, from the kitchen to the 3 bedrooms and from a higher floor...the only sight of civilization is Park Island in the distance. I dont even see the ClubHouse below. To be more precise, I dont see any ground from my windows as Tower 1 sits really on the coastline. It is really a 180 degree seaview...

    I ll post some pictures later (just realized I never cared to take pictures of this view)

    Thats great LARAC, we can see the Tsing Mah Bridge and the IFC building in the far distance from the rear of our roof top garden. From the front we can see the airport, the Macau, Zhuhai, Tung Chung and disco bay ferries zoom by, and all manner of large container ships, tug boats, container loaders, police intercept boats.

    It's never a dull sight having the bay right out front.

    Ha Ha Psampras, we bought our place for the 15 ft lounge room ceiling, and the beach at our door step, I don't mind a few roof tops here and there, it looks very western suburbia, and as normal as we could ever hope to find, compared to home.....

    Sounds like we are all in agreement that the move out here was worth it. I am now only 15 mins from work which was a big factor in our decision to move off the island and we have a car which makes things even easier.

    The complex is L shaped and we opted for the 49th floor (no vertigo feeling) looking right at the bridge with the airport to the right. The lounge, study and main bedroom all look straight out. I put the camera out the window facing down to get the shot of the clubhouse facilities. That picture is a bit deceptive because it is on 3 levels and the water is lower again.

    The other side of the L looks up toward the airport. This part is newer and the apartments have balconies but I preferred our side. Lots of apartments in this side are empty.

    We are also at the far end of the L, I didn't want to be in the corner.

    This part of Castle Peak Road is great for walking on a nice day and I'm contemplating a bike but I do wonder if in your battle of 'who lives in the best spot' are forgetting that 8 months of the year you can't see past the bridge for the pollution. And the last few weekends it has been white-out conditions. Today however was like the pictures.

    There are beaches all along Castle Peak Road but I wouldn't put a toe in the warning - several of the beaches have warning signs and don't think the beaches further up near the Gold Coast are any better - the water is great to look at but don't even contemplate a swim.

    I do encourage anyone considering an alternative to the city to come and take a look but I wouldn't go to the Gold Coast - Sham Tseng is completely different and in my opinion a much better option.

    A couple more pictures for you and you can see the little beach beside the complex in one of them. We have a better camera now if this clear weather holds I will take some more.

    We love having so much going on right outside with all the ships etc but you can't see HK Island from here, the angle is wrong. From our city apartment in Sheung Wan you could see the bridge but to see the city from here you have to be slightly further along Castle Peak Road - probably only about 500-1000m near the Sea Crest apartments to see the city. You can easily see Lamma on a good day but the IFC are just behind Tsing Yi whilst you might be able to make out HK Island you can't actually see the city.

    It seems that we are direct neighbours......

    Hi, sorry, one more question.

    Which of the Bellagio is the newest or which are the latest development around Bellagio's area.

    Thank you.

    Bellagio is the newwest development in the Sham Tseng / Gold Coast areas.
    Within Bellagio, Tower 3, 2, and 1 are the newest.

    I live in a B flat, Tower 1, and if your budget allows (Tower 1 units are the most expensive, but you can find similar views from other units as well), I highly recommend that unit, as, along with units A and B, face South and the seaviews are fantastic.

    Now that I have taken pictures, let me post some....taken in a foggy day. On clear days, the view extends even further to Pk Fu Lam and Lamma Island in the distance
