Diary of a major traffic accident on Peak Road heading to the Peak

A view of ICC from Hong Kong Island, turtles and sparkles and Harley Davidson in Hong Kong.

The 24 images show the timeline of a major traffic accident on Peak Road heading up towards the Peak. We had front row seats on the upper deck of the No. 15 bus and arrived about 30 seconds after the collision between an Audi A7 and a regular taxi.

For an hour we witnessed the efficiency and professionalism of the Emergency Services who worked as a team to get the injured to Hospital and get the road cleared to get traffic moving again.

As serious as it looked, our major English language newspaper gave it 3 lines the next day (no pictures) and all they said was that the driver of the Audi crossed over the lines, hit the taxi and 5 people were injured!

The worst aspect of this "scene" was the newspaper reporters who went into the ambulance to take pictures of the badly injured taxi driver, they did not cover themselves in glory.

Even on a smoggy day it is quite a magnificent view... ICC at 118 floors is our tallest building

The lucky turtles at the Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple have to dodge and duck people chucking coins at them all day!

Bit of an iconic logo! Harley Davidson in Hong Kong

Lane Crawford is a somewhat up market Department Store, the slogan in their store windows was a bit risque for them!

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 38 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.
