This is what Temple Street in Hong Kong looks like during the day

The 5 dogs in a pram that should have been walking!, The Shamrock Hotel - a minor legend in Hong Kong and the power plant out in Tuen Mun

 

 Just a normal road really

The Temple Street Night Market is a bit of a legend in Hong Kong, it is cheesy and touristy and all that but with a bit of effort you can find some very strange things going on... anyway, this is what it looks like during the day before the stalls go up, it is actually a regular road and the vast majority of stalls by law have to be taken down and reassembled every day.

 Totally ridiculous!

5 dogs in a pram going for a walk around the Peak, except they weren't walking they enjoyed the ride! not the dogs fault really

 A minor legend, the old and great Shamrock Hotel

A minor legend, the old and great Shamrock Hotel

The Hotel opened in January 1952 so by my reckoning this makes it our 2nd oldest Hotel still in operation after the Peninsula Hotel and it has been through some interesting times - make your own mind up when you review the Hotel, the rooms are small but hey, the location is brilliant! 

 The Tuen Mun Power Station

The Tuen Mun Power Station

I took this photo from within the train station at Asia World Expo out past the airport, one of those times I wished I had a really great zoom lens!! 

 The orange building in Yaumatei

The orange building in Yaumatei

Located at the junction of Nathan Road and Gascoigne Road in Yaumatei in Kowloon, this orange building is kind of hard to miss and there are lots of photo opportunities, it is 2 minutes walk from the Jade Market

 Thai Airways cabin crew

I guess the Thai Airways cabin crew are billeted in the Sky Marriott Hotel just past the airport, despite the early hour they were immaculately coiffured and quite chipper

 A typical Cheung Chau sight

I have been going to Cheung Chau since 1972 and is my favourite of the outlying islands, it is so colourful with many, many photo opportunities

Frankly you have to mad to ride a bike in our traffic but these delivery guys seems to have no issues at all.... unlike the weekend cyclists here all kitted out in fluorescent spandex and riding US$20,000 carbon bikes that weigh 0.5kg!  

 One of my favourite places in Hong Kong

One of my favourite places in Hong Kong

One of the poorer neighbourhoods in Hong Kong, it is home to the Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple, the Fat Jong Buddhist Temple and is a great place to take photo's of Lion Rock... and there is a Starbucks 5 minutes walk from the Station


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.
