The "Excellence" Fire Boat which is berthed at Tsing Yi

We have 230+ McDonald's in Hong Kong (really!), what defines "shifty" for a Police stop and search? and keeping fit is quite popular here.

It can be pretty hard getting access to our Fire Fighting ships, generally you have to wait for an "open day" which may or may not happen yearly... rather than do that I walked along to the berth of the Excellence Fire Boat. 

The boat is berthed at Tsing Yi (but a 30 minute walk from the train station is in order) 

Tsing Yi is between Kwai Chung and Tsuen Wan in the New Territories and is actually an island, it's proximity to the Kwai Chung Container Port is the reason the fire boat is stationed here. 

As you can see you can get reasonably close, I tried to attract the attention of a couple of people in the station, they simply ignored me, I imagine they thought me as some sort of raving nutter... anyway I got some fairly decent shots.

So, another fanboy moment ticked off. 

The golden arches of McDonald's - at last count we have 236 of them and many are 24/7 - simply incredible. This one is at the Gold Coast in Tuen Mun. 

Our coppers have the power's of stop and search and I often wonder about the criteria they use although in this case I knew, the chap they stopped looked decidedly shifty. 

We do love our waterfront promenades here and this one in Tsing Yi is amazingly popular, jogging is quite the thing these days.

... but I do draw the line at joining the spandex nutter brigade

Some people just like to fish, it is typical that the morons who work at the Leisure and Cultural Services Department feel the need to threaten you with prosecution if you fish dangerously!

Oh my, a simply awesome Audi R8


I do personal walking tours around Hong Kong, I am on the streets every day and I have a somewhat interesting perspective of this wonderful city I have called my home for 37 years. My private walking tours are perfect for visitors who want a detailed overview of Hong Kong prior to exploring on their own and for people who are only here for a day or two who want to make the most of their limited time here.

Many clients book me for their first full day in Hong Kong, they get to see the best that Hong Kong has to offer + a crash course on our wonderful public transport system and then they go exploring for the rest of their stay armed with step by step instructions and recommendations from me....

I am available at very short notice, I get many last minute bookings and may well be available even if you arrive in Hong Kong without making plans! so please check my calendar, if it says I am free then I am available to do a tour!! Simply send me a message for a prompt reply

...oh, and if you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides.
