.... and that's a fact according to the latest Hong Kong Police Department Crime Statistics for 2012
2012 statistics compared to 2011
2011 statistics compared to 2010
I love the fact that Hong Kong is one of the safest cities in the World, I have never once felt threatened or felt that my personal safety was going to be compromised and that is a big deal.
A lot of people make an issue out of pickpocketing in Hong Kong yet I hardly think that 1,500+ cases in 2012 (roughly the same in 2011!) is a serious problem when you consider we have a population of 7.1 million and we had 48 million visitors in 2012!
Incredibly we have not had an armed robbery with a gun for over 3 years!
Please take a few minutes to read the statistics and then you will understand the tag line.
A big "well done" to our professional and extremely competent Police Force
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....
...oh, and if you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides.
