Harbour Cruise Bauhinia - probably the second worst harbour tour in the world, I love a girl in a uniform and riding around in a Maybach
I have about 6,800 images of Hong Kong on my flickr site and for reasons I cannot fathom this is my most popular picture with 572 views (and yes I am aware that 572 views is pathetic in the overall scheme of things)
I like the picture mainly because of his "outfit" which I was not aware of until I looked at the image on my monitor.. having a rubbish bike does nothing for his street credibility.
So there you go.
Before dusk the ferry is actually pink (and I have done a little bit of image manipulation to make the colour less offensive) ... the boat is actually a reminder of how cars would get from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon prior to 1972, it is one of our old car ferries.
Just nasty just about sums up what is on store for you if you do the harbour tour on this thing... the only one worth doing is the Aqua Luna.
These are our "hard" coppers, specially trained and such (Police Tactical Unit officers) who can be seen wandering our streets pulling people over in a not so random stop and search procedure.
... and she is in charge! and yes, she has really short hair. I am probably the only one that thinks that the copper on the left is the spitting image of a younger version of our Chief Executive.
The car of choice for our gazillionaires is normally the Rolls Royce Phantom so it is nice to see every now and then a Maybach which is always good for making a statement to the average guy on the street.
Not noted as one of our finer hotels but it certainly makes for an interesting image.
Whilst I think doing the entire West - East route (110 stops) is a tad excessive, hopping on one for 15 minutes is a great idea for seeing daily life in Hong Kong.
If you lurk around our back alleys you will come across quite decent graffiti
I do personal 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 37 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.
