Bespoke Private Tours Hong Kong | The Tai O Fishing Village.... again!

Another awesome Porsche GT3 RS at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, the Christies looking like zombies at the Peak Tower at night, a bad case of the crabs in Mongkok, the ancient Temple doors in the Tai O Fishing Village and a golden sunset as seen from TST Promenade in Kowloon.

I am not very good at getting or framing great shots, I am just never in the right place at the right time but I am pretty happy that I got the bird shot on the boat.

I am not a fan of purple but by golly it looks amazing on this Porsche GT3 RS....this one is parked up at the amazing Ritz Carlton Hotel in ICC.

Meet the Christies... I was having one of those days and I took an image on top of the Peak Tower at around 9pm and it did not turn out as planned so I had no choice but to turn them into Zombies with somewhat interesting results. So from left to right - Julie, Joanne, David and Sam who were good sports!

Oh dear, from zombies to crabs, these poor buggers are no longer of this world, Hong Kongers do love their crabs.

A rather colourful Temple door from an ancient (!) Temple situated in the redneck part of the Tai O Fishing Village - amazing.

.... and as all doors come in pairs, here is the other one!

Sometimes a Hong Kong sunset is a real treat, this one is taken from Kowloon looking across to Hong Kong Island.

Oh my gosh - a WALD BLACK BISON kit for this awesome Mercedes Benz, this is a rare sight in Hong Kong with AMG being much more common (as a kit conversion) simply awesome.

This mountain next to the Giant Buddha is quite often shrouded in mist and cloud, it is 2,900 ft so by Hong Kong standards quite large and quite a few fruitcakes go hiking up there! it is rather lovely though when the sun shines.

One of the quite interesting water fountains in Statue Square, it has been there since the early 1960's and is much photographed.

Interestingly I have seen comments on Tripadvisor written by Hong Kong residents who think it is not worth your time!

There is a bit of interesting history for Statue Square but this location is a far cry from its original intention and there is only one stature remaining on display, the most important, that of Queen Victoria has long been moved to Victoria Park in the North Point/Causeway Bay area of Hong Kong Island.

This location does serve a good purpose though and is highly utilized by the local maids and helpers who gather here during their free time on weekends to social and meet up with their friends. There are also some Christmas decorations that go up in this area during the holiday season. Otherwise, there is very little to do/see here other than to stop and rest your feet during visits to the very crowded areas of Hong Kong island.

Because here is very little tourism value in Statue Square, you can give this location a pass when planning your time in Hong Kong and the Central district, concentrating your time on more important and interesting locations.

In my view this is complete and utter nonsense, it is a must visit place, all that colonial history, the Feng Shui and such... I always try and visit Statue Square on my private walking tours of Hong Kong!!
