13 Hong Kong iconic plants & flowers

This is more of a visual treat as I am utterly useless at remembering the names of plants and flowers... so no text, just images.

So, there you go. Hong Kong has a reputation for being a concrete jungle but with very little effort you can find yourself in a veritable tropical jungle with some stunning plants, trees and flowers and the the attendant bugs!.. One of my favourite places is the Botanical Gardens but we have so many wonderful "green" spots. 


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....

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