Chilling out at Deepwater Bay in Hong Kong on a sunny day

Why you should buy shares in DFS Hong Kong, another incredible view from Peak Road and a manhole cover.

 

 A nice way to spend the morning

It must be nice to wake up past 9am, have a nice leisurely breakfast and then head to the beach for a game of something... with an old mate. These 2 chaps were at Deep Water Bay soaking up the sun.

LVMH owns DFS Hong Kong, DFS Hong Kong is a license to print money - every day literally thousands of Mainland Chinese tourists are dropped off at the DFS (Duty Free Stores) at Chinachem Plaza on Mody Road in TST, Kowloon to go shopping for brand name items. 

This shop must have the biggest $ turnover of any shop in Hong Kong, it is packed for 12 hours a day... 

 What a view

 How the rich folk chill on a morning

The two blokes in the first image are just regular folk, the really rich people enjoy themselves in a slightly different way... and yes, that is a space age trimaran boat

 Nice

I do not have the time to spend framing a shot for 30 minutes, I see something nice and take the picture, sometimes it works. 

 Another nice view

 Wow, real history

Wow, real history

British Naval Headquarters in Hong Kong was called H.M.S Tamar and now the Hong Kong Government Headquarters is at Tamar, must have something to do with this which is in Hong Kong Cemetery in Happy Valley

 A very, very nice house

A very, very nice house

The gajlillionaires in Hong Kong live in Deep Water Bay next to the Golf Course.. I could certainly put my roots down in this mansion.

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.
