Stopping at every MTR Station in Hong Kong

The Rolls Royce Ghost - perfect for cruising the busy streets of Hong Kong, the scary Aberdeen Dragon Boat and the Peninsula Dog

I have decided to join the ranks of the Hong Kong Anoraks, over the next few months I am going to stop and photograph every MTR Station sign. This is the first.

I can see myself at some stage in the future giving tours in the Rolls Royce Ghost (at a premium price of course!)  it is simply gorgeous. I am going to have to win the lottery to get one, in the meantime I am going to think about offering luxury tours in helicopters, fancy cars and big bad boats.

 The Aberdeen Dragon Boat - scary

The Aberdeen Dragon Boat - scary

Aberdeen on the South Side of the Island is undergoing a major makeover in preparation for the opening of the new MTR Line that will go there and is expected to open in 2015... I love this dragon boat and all sorts of stuff is being added to the promenade there in anticipation of the crowds that will surely flock to Aberdeen once the new line opens.. I for one will be going on a regular basis. 

 The Peninsula Hotel dog

The Peninsula Hotel dog

The Peninsula Hotel has the finest Hotel lobby in Hong Kong and near the check in counter is the Peninsula dog standing guard, it has been there for so long it has fossilized!

I have never really got the connection between Kiehl's Skincare / Bodycare and skeletons (there is a horror movie script there somewhere) but you have to admire the Kiehl's advertising strategy, it does attract the crowds.

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.
