Please help identify this bee-type insect with fancy wings

This insect was on a playground in Hong Kong this past weekend at eye level.  I took this picture with my phone from less than 1 foot away.  At first we thought it was some sort of butterfly or moth because of the fancy details on the wings.  However, upon closer inspection, the body (under the wing) was stripped yellow and black and from the side profile it definitely looked like a bee / wasp of some sort.  At that point we didn't want to get any closer!

 

Can you please help me identify what this is?  I think the wings are very beautiful.
