Hong Kong Private Tours - The Che Kung Temple + Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple

Hello, I'm Jamie. 45 years living in Hong Kong - How local do you want to get?

Award Winning Private Tours in amazing Hong Kong, former British Colony from 1841 - 1997

The amazing Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple, The Che Kung Temple in Shatin (pity about it's location), The over the top Bugatti Chiron at the Hong Kong Gold Coast Car Show, The Mong Kok Street Market for strange sights, sounds and smells, The Irish mob at the Peak, Hollywood Road and for me the most amazing car in the world - the Pagani Zonda.

The Amazing Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple

Hong Kong's best Temple by far

The chap in the picture is the gatekeeper, whose job description includes slaying demons and flipping people off.

I visit here most days as it is simply one of the best places in Hong Kong to learn about Hong Kong culture.

It really is amazing.

The NOT quite so amazing Che Kung Temple in Shatin

The Che Kung Temple is rather iconic to many Hong Kong residents particularly at Chinese New Year and I rather like it as well but it is such a shame that it is a pain in the backside to visit given it is far away from town - oh well.

If interested I am more than happy to take you there on one of my private tours of Hong Kong.

The Irish Mob at the Peak

I do love the Irish......

Here are 2 families from Ireland on one of my Private Tours of Hong Kong enjoying the view from the Peak on a windy, rainy day (reminded them of Ireland)

Michelle, Ashley, Sadie, Ivan, Rose, Joe, Gemma and Aimee-Jo spent 2 days here before embarking on a cruise.

Thanks guys.

The awesome Bugatti Chiron at the Gold Coast Car Show

What a gorgeous car and I am always thrilled to see cars like this, this is indeed a rare sight but for the life of me I cannot understand why people spend a small fortune on a car like this and have such a boring colour and no add ons - I always appreciate understated but on a car like this it screams out for an in your face colour, racing stripes and a bloody big spoiler on the back.

Personal opinion of course.

Pigs

I love taking people to the Mong Kok Street Market as it really takes people out of their comfort zone and into the harsh reality of daily life in Hong Kong.

Seeing pigs on a trolley is a fairly common sight and you also need to know that our subway system the MTR puts up signs in quite a few stations prohibiting pigs on the train (seriously).

Make sure you bring your camera.

Mei Ho House Public Housing Exhibit

Looking for something a little different? then ask me to take you to the Mei Ho Public Housing Exhibit in Sham Shui Po, Kowloon.

It certainly gives you an insight into Public Housing in Hong Kong (almost half of our population lives in Public Housing) but as usual my gripe is that they have sanitized the exhibit, it certainly does not look spotless like in the image! - I prefer reality... however it is certainly worth your time.

Hong Kong by Night

HSBC Hong Kong Headquarters is quite remarkable at night and I am more than happy to take you there on one of my 3 or 4 hour night tours.

I know it is a cliche but Hong Kong looks quite different at night and I am a big fan of heading out after dark.

The Pagani Zonda   - License Plate PP 198

This car is quite famous in Hong Kong and I have now photographed in a showroom, on the road and now at a car show!

As much as I like the Bugatti I think the Pagani Zonda is just the most awesome hypercar in the world, it is has staggering performance and it's looks defy comprehension and frankly it must be one of the 7 wonders of the world to actually drive one!!

Simply amazing.

Hong Kong Private Walking Tours

Hollywood Road

I like this sign and quite a famous road sign it is  - Hollywood Road is famous for all sorts of things, roughly a 15 - 20 minute walk from one end to the other but what an interesting walk and I heartily recommend it to everyone.

There are bars, restaurants, old Police Stations, the PMQ, ancient banyan trees, antique shops, temples and shops that make and sell coffins.

Emergency Services Hong Kong

I have great respect for our Emergency Services in Hong Kong (particularly the Ambulance Service) and it is a blessing that our Fire Services Department do not have much work to do despite the many tens of thousands of high rise buildings.

When they are called upon, heroic is an appropriate word to use.

..... and our Government always make sure they have the very best equipment.


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 45 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, simply send me a message for a prompt reply.

I also offer a candid and very personal view of what it is like to live in Hong Kong for over 4 decades.

...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 mark 2 camera - it produces amazing images!
