L'Hotel Elan in Kwun Tong - a very odd location for a boutique hotel, a rainy day Tram and the Pet Shop Boys in Hong Kong
Bentley's are very common in Hong Kong which comes as no surprise as it certainly conveys class and status, I love the Bentley, those lights and that grille.. wow! competition is looming though, the new Rolls Royce Wraith is coming to Hong Kong in 2014 which is the sportiest Rolls for many a year but I think I will stick with the Bentley!
I am absolutely not a fan of boutique hotels, maybe it is because I am getting on a bit, who knows.. what I hate more than anything is that they do NOT provide adequate or comfortable seating in the lobby (even the Hotel Icon has awful lobby seating).
The lobby here is small but they provide only 2 stupidly designed chairs for guests or visitors - crazy.
Unless you have business in Kwun Tong I do not know why people would choose this hotel, it is in the middle of an industrial area and quite far away from town.. still it seems to do very well but they really should do something about seating in the lobby.
I hate being on our trams when it rains, they leak.
Yes, there is a sign that says Pet Shops Boys - very creative!
Yet another reason to buy a top notch camera....
It is very hard to figure out how serious the problem is in Hong Kong as most Governments would prefer to sweep this particular problem under the carpet, I have seen an official number of 555 homeless people in Hong Kong bandied about!! simply not possible in a city of 7.1 million people.
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.
