The iconic Peak Tram passing at the halfway point

KMB - celebrating 80 years of serving Hong Kong with buses!, the Hullett House Hotel in TST Kowloon and enjoying a great harbour tour on the Aqua Luna

Due to out of control queues I rarely ride the Peak Tram these days, invariably I take a taxi to the Peak and if possible I come down on the Tram which is much more exciting! it is a real shame but I feel it is pointless to queue for 1 - 2 hours for an 8 minute ride. .. all that pushing and shoving in the queue drives me bonkers anyway.

 Underrated, the Kowloon Motor Bus Company

I came across the special 80th anniversary KMB bus yesterday. KMB has been operating a bus service (mainly in Kowloon) for the past 80 years and they have done a terrific job, I ride a KMB bus pretty much everyday.

KMB is a key player in our fabulous public transport system and they deserve every plaudit coming their way.

Located next to Canton Road and very close to the Star Ferry in Kowloon, the Hullett House Hotel is worth exploring, it is much bigger than the image suggests and bear in mind there are very few Colonial style buildings left in Hong Kong. 

 The Aqua Luna, noted for it's red sails,

In my humble opinion the Aqua Luna with it's distinctive red sails is the ONLY harbour tour worth taking.. it is pretty cool. 

 Our crazy / stupid property market

281 sqft of livable space is yours for just over US$1 million, this is beyond stupid.


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.
