A crystal clear day at the Peak means magnificent views, The Victoria Peak Fire Station and meet Dennis the Dragon
It was a beautiful day yesterday but I knew something was going to happen, weird cloud patterns in the morning are not normally a good sign here... sure enough around 4.30pm a violent thunderstorm rolled in and I was lucky enough to get a picture of a rainbow, I hardly ever see them let alone get a photo. Yahoo!
As usual my images do not do the views justice - we get about 13 days a year where it is crystal clear and you can clearly see the buildings in Shenzhen in China and some distant mountains, yesterday was such a day and it was awe inspiring. The views from the Peak yesterday where simply astounding.
Another one of those Hong Kong oddities, the Victoria Peak Fire Station.. set in gorgeous surroundings it is just a bit bizarre.
So now you know what a bus engine looks like - fascinating.
It was so clear at the Nan Lian Garden yesterday I swear I could see a Golden Orb spider spinning a web on the radio mast at the top of the mountain... amazing
My love affair with spiders continues with no end in sight.
Anyone coming to Hong Kong should visit the Peninsula Hotel to see the best hotel lobby here, you can also pose outside.
Vanity plates like this one sell for serious amounts of money, I spotted this car at the Peak so it seems appropriate.
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.
