Private Tours, Hong Kong - Jamie meets "The Damned" in Hong Kong

The Symphony of Lights - 8pm daily in Hong Kong, the lady with the great pair of shoes, the almost mystical HSBC Lions, the richest guy in Thailand and his lovely Maybach and telling the time the Cartier way,

This me being somewhat starstruck, I was in the Hotel Icon waiting for my client and 5 blokes came and stood buy me with their luggage, it occurred to me that being Brits they might be famous, there was just something about the luggage, the way they talked and the way they looked that set the memory bells off... after 2 minutes I could not stand it so I just walked up to them and said, "excuse me, I am sorry to interrupt but are you chaps famous" - they thought this was pretty funny.. anyway long story short, this was "The Damned" who I remember from a misspent youth, along with the Sex Pistols and the Clash they started the Punk Rock movement.. anyway they were jolly nice chaps and agreed to pose for an image or two.. they had just done a concert in Hong Kong the previous night.... I love it when famous people are gracious and they really were... and how can you not love a band who has a band member called Monty Oxymoron!! he is the chap with the frizzy hair... just brilliant guys and a big thank you, you made my day.

Go here for my somewhat limited album of famous people images I have taken.

The Symphony of Lights, Laser Light Show, taken from TST Promenade in Kowloon at roughly 8.11pm on quite a clear night.... whilst is could be better it is still worth watching for first time visitors... and frankly the view of Hong Kong Island across the harbour at night is simply amazing!

The chap on the left is an employee of the Peninsula Hotel, he and his crew ensure NO madness and mayhem occurs outside the Hotel... my understanding is that the awesome Maybach in the image is owned by the richest guy in Thailand who spends a lot of time in Hong Kong.

In Hong Kong when you look at watch adverts, all the dates are set at 8, 18, or 28 being that 8 is such a lucky number!!

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!
