When I work at home in Hong Kong, an amazing super large caterpillar at the Peak, Repulse Bay on a beautiful sunny day, visiting the Giant Buddha on Lantau Island, a somewhat amazing Ferrari prowls the streets of Hong Kong and the "walkers" that have become "fashionistas" on the streets of Hong Kong.


A typical wet day in Hong Kong, this one came out of the blue and in the space of 8 hours we had 11 inches of rain!! this was May 24th... on May 25th you would not have known that it had even rained at all, we have some pretty good drains in Hong.


Me working at home.


Caterpillars are starting to make an appearance and I was totally fascinated by this one as it looked like tree bark plus it was quite big.


It has been a while since I have been to Repulse Bay, it is one of the best beaches in Hong Kong and boy did we pick a great day to go, warm and not very humid and clear blue skies... simply amazing.


Another one of my favourite places to visit, the Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island next to the Giant Buddha.. look at the size of that incense!


Oh my, the amazing Ferrari 488 - what a fabulous car.... the image does not show the speed it was travelling at nor does it show me whooping with joy at that sound it makes.....


So, here is the current fad in Hong Kong, wearing sports fashion to go walking, personally I think it looks faintly ridiculous, the only thing missing here are the walking poles... I guess you are not taken seriously as a walker unless you are kitted out, I walk up to 10 miles a day in jeans and a polo shirt and my backpack does not have a water bladder built in. oh well.


John and Janelle walking the streets of TST in Kowloon...we had a great day.


Even the dogs love Repulse Bay! the Pulse shopping mall was absolutely bursting at the seams, it was such a lovely day.


I have a feeling that this beautiful Bentley is owned by our very own Sir David Tsang - he is the founder of a rather snazzy store called Shanghai Tang which is literally 2 minutes walk from where the car is parked. ... the car and license plate totally match his personality!


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!
