The death of a chicken at a local Hong Kong Street Market

At least they use a fly trap to catch flies, more images from Peak Road and another magnificent house at Deep Water Bay.

I normally stay well away from live chicken stalls but I had a butcher as a client so we paid a visit to the wet / street markets in Wanchai and there we witnessed the death of a chicken - all I can say is that I much prefer to buy pre - packaged prime cut chicken breast from a supermarket. fascinating though.... (and quick to minimise the suffering of the chicken)

 nice of them to use a fly trap

The only saving grace is that at least the flies are not on the meat!

Peak Road is full of surprises - from magnificent views to colonial fire stations and old and famous gardens... it is worth walking up (and the danger that, that entails!) 

Amazing.

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.
