Hong Kong Shore Excursion - Recruiting is a problem for the iconic Star Ferry

Riding on the MTR in Hong Kong, the Hong Kong hearse, the ladies enjoying their day out at Stanley, a BMW M3 rocks along at high speed and a night view from my spot at the Peak.

This Star Ferry employee looks a bit jaded doesn't he? and who can blame him, he probably wants to hang up his sailor suit and enjoy retirement.

The Star Ferry is facing recruitment issues because the young folk of Hong Kong are simply not interested in manual labour particularly if the work is outdoors... such a shame... in the past couple of years I have seen ONE young chap working on a Star Ferry, the work is hardly back breaking but it probably is a little tedious, the Company pays a fair wage so it is a bit perplexing that no one wants to work on a ferry.

I love our Subway system and that's a fact, the MTR opened another 6 stations in late 2016 including the long awaited South Island Line... simply brilliant... one of the fun aspects of any subway system is simply to people watch, there is a very simple pleasure to be had in just watching people do what people do...... - go here for all of my Hong Kong MTR images

Just thought I would slip in another Pagani image and the fabulous death stare from the rich chap driving... amazing car - go here for my 20 favourite Hong Kong car images

The typical Hong Kong hearse - every now and then you see a more US style hearse but this design is still the common one in Hong Kong, it is quite an odd looking vehicle. - go here for all of my Hong Kong hearse images

This is still my favourite Temple image (The Pak Tai Temple in Wanchai) and is one of my top 10 images in terms of views, I do like it! - go here for all of my Pak Tai Temple, Hong Kong images

I am a huge supercar fan but at the same time I love the BMW M series cars, particularly the M3 shown above which is pretty darn sporty.... love it! - go here for all of my BMW cars in Hong Kong images

Hong Kong is rather special at night, here is a night shot taken from my spot at the Peak and the big golden glow is the Hong Kong port, the 5th largest in the world.... - go here for all of my Hong Kong night images


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 40+ 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, simply send me a message for a prompt reply.

I also offer a candid and very personal view of what it is like to live in Hong Kong for over 4 decades.

...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 mark 2 camera - it produces amazing images!
