Hong Kong Full Day Private Tour | A quick visit to Pokfulam Squatter Village

A lovely Hong Kong sunrise - 18th November 2013,  the 2013 Xmas display in the Landmark and a young lady with pink hair.

I was in Pokfulam so I decided to have a wander around the fabled Pokfulam Village which has had a lot of press recently.

In a nutshell it is what we call a squatter village which implies that many of the structures are illegal and I certainly got that impression, the village is a curious mixture of concrete houses and tin huts and at the moment the village has no functioning sewage system ( best not to dwell on that!)

The full set of images I took will appear on my flickr site.

All in all it was worth a visit, I find places like this quite fascinating.

The 2013 christmas decorations in the Landmark - not anywhere near as good as 2012!

A very lovely young lady with some very dodgy pink hair
