A typical rainy day in Hong Kong - 6.5cm of rain in 24 hours

Doing what I do I hate rainy days, 26th July 2013 - a typical rainy day, 2 or 3 quite heavy showers, 6.5cm of rain in 24 hours and lots of horrible drizzle

 

 Yuk! 

Yuk! 

We get a lot of rain in Hong Kong and this week is typical, yesterday was our 3rd day in a row of heavy rain and depressing is not quite the right word, doing what I do rain is a challenge but luckily we get heavy showers with drizzle in between.. funny how the heaviest rain is ALWAYS between 8am - 9am and 6pm - 7pm as people are heading to or leaving work!  

6.5cm rain is quite a fair bit... in the past few months we have had days where we have had 25cm of rain in 24 hours so yesterday wasn't that bad! 

Anyway, here are some images from a typical Hong Kong rainy day,

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.
