A quick visit to Pokfulam Village on Hong Kong Island

A lovely Hong Kong sunrise - 18th November 2013,  the 2013 Xmas display in the Landmark and a young lady with pink hair.

I was in Pokfulam so I decided to have a wander around the fabled Pokfulam Village which has had a lot of press recently.

In a nutshell it is what we call a squatter village which implies that many of the structures are illegal and I certainly got that impression, the village is a curious mixture of concrete houses and tin huts and at the moment the village has no functioning sewage system ( best not to dwell on that!)

The full set of images I took will appear on my flickr site.

All in all it was worth a visit, I find places like this quite fascinating.

The 2013 christmas decorations in the Landmark - not anywhere near as good as 2012!

A very lovely young lady with some very dodgy pink hair

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 38 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.
