Hong Kong by night - it's a different world

The Temple Street Night Market is worth a visit, the ongoing street protests in Mong Kok and random street shots at night and all done without a tripod.

Temple Street Night Market, yeah it sells trashy stuff, the food is horrible and overpriced but do take the time to do some people watching, the whole area is a red light district and there are normally 25 / 40 prostitutes propping up walls.. it is all quite fascinating and the place has a buzz to it.

A typical stall at Temple Street - lots of trash and stuff on sale - go here for all my images of the Temple Street Night Market

Mong Kok street protests - I have a great respect for our Police and fully support what they are doing against unruly mobs.

Mong Kok street protests - it never seems to occur to anyone that the constant press reporting + the fact that everyone has a camera phone means that the protesters deliberately provoke the Police into action so that they can claim Police brutality - these are not peaceful protesters they are thugs trying to discredit the Police.

Mong Kok street protests - the guy in the mask, goggles and hard hat with a stupid umbrella is a "student" protester - if his intentions were peaceful he would not be dressed like this - it is time they wheeled out the water cannons, I imagine these would be a lot more effective than batons and pepper spray.

No Police Force anywhere in the civilised world would tolerate what these people are doing.

One of our red top minibuses - I would absolutely advise against taking one as the drivers drive like maniacs!! particularly at night.

A typical newspaper stall - the old bloke is probably granddad and the young lady his grand daughter, they are sat there probably 350 days a year, 15 hours a day in all types of weather.

No set of Hong Kong by night images would be complete without a shot of the city by night from my spot at the Peak and this was taken hand held without a tripod! - image taken on October 8th 2014

I do private 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 39 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, so explore this great city with one of the best tour guides in Hong Kong.

All images taken with a Sony RX 1r camera - it produces amazing images!
