The simply magnificent view from the Peak, Hong Kong

July 30th 2013 - what a gloriously sunny day and what a view from the Peak, simply magnificent, crystal clear and stunning... oh and another Golden Orb spider at the Peak!

 WOW!!!!!!!!

WOW!!!!!!!!

Every now and then we have a gloriously sunny day with reduced humidity and the result is this view from the Peak.... July 30th 2013 was such as day and I simply ran out of words to describe this amazing view... I have not retouched or altered the images by the way. 

I need to also stress that these images do not do justice to the view, you have to see it with your own eyes, simply breathtaking! 

 Double wow!

 I really need a decent camera with a decent zoom lens

 The water colour is deceptive, normally it is a murky grey

I am on the verge of creating a Golden Orb spider tour.... look very closely, you can see a really huge spider and compare it's size to the smaller spiders to the left - we estimated the web to be over 6 feet long!!! Huzzah! 


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.
