Yes, I do believe the Borg have taken over HSBC in Hong Kong

That fleet of Rolls Royce at the Peninsula Hotel, extra large incense coils at the Tin Hau Temple in Yaumatei and the best place to change money in Hong Kong.

The Borg are here right now and you will be assimilated and resistance is futile.

I admit I am a fanboy when it comes to Star Trek, those that follow(ed) Star Trek - The Next Generation and Star Trek - Voyager will be familiar with humanities greatest threat, yes, The Borg.

As you can see from the ATM Machines at HSBC Headquarters above the Borg have landed in Hong Kong.

The Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong is somewhat iconic in many respects, not least of which is the fact that it has 14 of the iconic Rolls Royce Phantom which you can hire for the hotel / airport run. Simply magnificent.

These suckers burn for over a week and you can see them at the Tin Hau Temple on Temple Street in Yaumatei.

Chungking Mansions, next to the Holiday Inn Golden Mile on Nathan Road, TST in Kowloon - simply the best place in Hong Kong to change money (just remember to ignore the 2 shops at the entrance with flashing neon lights, you will lose 10% of your money here)

The old CLP Power headquarters in Kowloon, quite an iconic (if somewhat boring) old building.

Chow Tai Fook do NOT sell cheap jewellery, the diamond and sapphire necklace is priced at over US$1.3 million!

If ever you needed proof that riding a bike on our roads is dangerous then this it it!


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 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.

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