...and the absolutely gorgeous weather returns to Hong Kong

Do not hang around the US Consulate, another hairy caterpillar at the Peak and another view of Government House after it's recent paint job

 

 A view like this makes you want to weep

 Park Island, if it had decent transport it would be a nice place to live

4pm on a beautiful sunny day, this is the view from my balcony, untouched raw images, it was so clear I could see islands 25+ miles away which is amazing.. it is a pity we do not have clear weather like this year round but I will take it when it happens! 

 Not a good idea to take a photo of this sign

The security guard in the image actually came running up the path to tell me to stop taking photo's so I subjected him to the death stare (which did not work!) they get more than a little twitchy at the US Consulate if you get your camera out. 

 Hairious Caterpillarus Vampirus

Hairious Caterpillarus Vampirus

We have over 260+ species of butterflies in Hong Kong so it stands to reason we must have a vampire butterfly and this is what it looks like before it shape shifts. 

 Government House has just been repainted

Government House is where our Chief Executive lives and where all the old British Governors used to live, it looks smashing on a lovely summers day. 

 The Ladies Market in Mongkok

The Ladies Market in Mongkok

The Ladies Market is full of cheap tat, everyone knows that but that is not the point, it is crowded and noisy but very atmospheric and great for people watching and listening to the chatter between stall holders and potential buyers. Open from noon until about 11.30pm it is well worth a visit. 

 The trimmed down version of the venerable Range Rover

The trimmed down version of the venerable Range Rover

I cannot make my mind up about this Range Rover, it is very popular here but somehow the roof is just too low and looks a bit silly from certain angles... if I was a gazillionaire I would have one in my stable so to speak

 All hail the gods. The Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple

All hail the gods. The Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple

The Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple is one of the most photogenic places in Hong Kong - just do it! 


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.
