Finding World War 2 ruins in Hong Kong is not easy, most of them are in very inaccessible places... the Pinewood Battery at the Peak is quite easy but it does require a bit of a trek through the "jungle". 

Essentially you walk along Lugard Road for about 35 minutes and you will come across the signs in the images and then you simply follow them. 

I am not kidding about the Golden Orb spider, I came across 5 of them in close proximity and right next to the path you walk on very close to the Pinewood Battery so be careful!! 

 The greatest city view in the world

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.
