Another quick look at the Kowloon Bowling Green Club

The numerous bit's of wasteland dotting the New Territories, the youth in a hoodie - fishing! and the McLaren supercar.


I  think it is marvellous that old Colonial clubs still thrive in Hong Kong and the KBGC is one of the oldest, it's first clubhouse opened in 1905. 

I have never been a fan of lawn bowls probably because it is has a perception problem in the same way the croquet does (snobby gits drinking gin & tonic etc) but I also imagine that it requires a certain amount of skill which may or may not be enhanced by liberal quantities of alcohol. 

The club itself is at the junction of Austin Road / Cox's Road in Jordan and just 2 minutes walk from the madness of Nathan Road, the surroundings are tranquil to say the least and it is next door to the Kowloon Cricket Club another legendary Colonial Club.

Message to our Government, our housing shortage can be rectified in 2 years by building apartment blocks on the hundreds of unsightly wasteland scrapyards dotted around the New Territories. 

We have youths that wear hoodies, our's go fishing instead of hanging around on street corners

Oh my, the McLaren super car - a common sight in Hong Kong. 

I do not really have fan boy moments with trucks but this one is pretty big.

The 80th Anniversary bus  of the Kowloon Motor Bus Company next to the Peninsula Hotel

A very old and dodgy looking building near Causeway Bay. 

Nice Merc, nice plate


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.
