The Duddell Street Gas Lamps, not quite an offbeat attraction

One of my favourite Hong Kong number plates, one of my favourite cars and the guy asleep whilst driving his scooter on a busy road!


There is no doubt about the historical value of the Duddell Street Gas Lamps in Central District on the Island - it is more a case of whether it is worth a detour as you can see them and be gone in under 5 minutes! - at least there is a Starbucks next to the lamps! 

A deep and meaningful number plate

I am not sure what the person is trying to convey with the deep & meaningful "Tomorrow" number plate but hey, who cares.... I love the plate and the car. 

Oh my... 

You would be right in assuming I have a thing about this gorgeous red Bentley, I saw it again yesterday but was not quick enough to the get a close up picture - the owner is well known here, somewhat eccentric and a bon vivant but hey, he also has good taste in cars.

Spandex nutter

My generic term for cyclist's is "spandex nutter" these guys incur the wrath of car, truck, van and bus drivers.. it is only a matter of time before this guy becomes just another grim statistic.

Look very closely at his face

This is not good... this chap appears to be asleep at the wheel of his scooter on Queens Road Central at a very busy junction. 

Caught in the act

My advice is simply take the picture, never ask permission - this couple attracted my attention due to their somewhat colourful fashion sense. 

Taking a break

I am not sure a smelly, sweaty shoe makes the best pillow. 

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.
