The Hopewell Centre in Wanchai, a somewhat iconic building

Hong Konger's like the Mini because it looks cute and is made by BMW, the wonderful chocolate creations at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and more from Hong Kong Cemetery.

The Hopewell Centre shoots out green lasers at night time, it also has a revolving restaurant on the 62nd floor and has been around for 33 years, that makes it iconic but somewhat dated

 Not my favourite car - the Mini

I am a bit of an odd Englishman, I do not like tea, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Mini's. 

The Mini is hugely popular in Hong Kong because it is seen as cute but more importantly it has status as the car is made by BMW - not the two best reasons to buy a car.

I am wondering if Bob (really) or the other guy was responsible for this amazing chocolate creation on display in the Mandarin Oriental Coffee Shop, simply masterful.

Lugard is a famous name in Hong Kong, we have Lugard Road at the Peak so I am thinking that this chap was a member of the famous Lugard family, we had a Governor named Lugard from 1907 - 1912. 

This grave (and many others) is located in Hong Kong Cemetery in Happy Valley

 Oh my word

Isn't this a magnificent view of Aberdeen and Aberdeen Marina + some of our outlying islands?? WOW!! This was taken from Peak Road on the way to the Peak.

I could be wrong but I am thinking that this car belongs to someone high up in TVB which is one of our major TV Stations here... this was parked at a fancy apartment block at the Peak. 

 Guess who

I actually put in a bit of effort to make my spider images interesting and creepy

Not quite the Opus but I could certainly live in this lovely old colonial apartment block on Stubbs Road on the way to the Peak.

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.
