The inane stupidity of Hong Kong Chauffeurs

The Policeman on his bizarre electric motorbike, Chungking Mansions - the dodgiest building in Hong Kong and the goose that used to lay the golden egg.

Chater Road in Central, a very busy road. The Japanese 7 seaters on the left are chauffeur driven 2nd cars of our rich folk and park illegally here every day. The truck and the 2 buses to the right collided and blocked traffic. The bus on the left could not pass because of the illegally parked cars. The chauffeurs refused to move their vehicles - it would appear they fear their rich bosses more than an angry mob of frustrated drivers. It took 10 minutes and Police intervention before the cars moved... only in Hong Kong

This is the new learner bike for Traffic Cops, it is electric and looks a little odd.. it is nowever a step up from what I call the noddy bikes that they have been using.

This chap was leaving Chungking Mansions which is perhaps Hong Kong's dodgiest building but it is however the best place in Hong Kong to change money.

An inglorious end for a noble bird - these used to be the geese that laid the golden eggs.

A professional beggar on the streets of Kowloon

I would love to spend a couple of hours in the truck sorting through all that treasure which is being guarded by those chaps with shotguns.

One of my favourite Porsche's - it is frequently parked at the Peninsula Hotel in Kowloon - go here for all my 2,900+ Porsche images


I do private 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 39 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, so explore this great city with one of the best tour guides in Hong Kong.

All images taken with a Sony RX 1r camera - it produces amazing images!
