A ginseng root costing US$241,645 - really!

The grim ritual of rush hour travelling on a bus in Hong Kong, a traffic cop does his thing and Paula & Elizabeth do the Peak.

One would have to question the mentality of why even a gazillionaire would drop HK$1,880,000 or US$241,645 on a gnarly old ginseng root, it beggars belief but I have no doubt that some daft sod will buy it!... only in Hong Kong!

The No. 23 on Hong Kong Island - this is typical

The 12M is not much better

At least this young lady seems happy enough

Not quite as happy....

Our traffic cops are always very serious fellows.....

My old friend - the Golden Orb spider and yes, they are getting bigger.


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 38 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.

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