From the ground, Hong Kong may be a booming metropolis of more than 7.2 million people where quiet corners are few and far between. When you take in the city from hundreds of feet in the air, it's a totally different story. Vimeo user NPro+—an account full of stunning bird's-eye view videos—sent a drone on an adventure over Hong Kong, capturing 10 hours of footage from the coast to the city center.

The video quickly switches between remote suburbs with rolling valleys of green grass and towering skyscrapers overlooking a bustling street system, sharing a surprisingly diverse profile of the city in just four minutes. Check it out above.
