Hong Kong Private Tours
Lamma Island, honestly it is not my favourite place to visit, however as a visitor you should really go! I cannot put my finger on it but it has never really interested me, I much prefer to visit Cheung Chau Island..... It is 3 years to the day since I visited Lamma (10.6.14) and the weather was hot and sunny and yet my images do not convey this at all.... it seems drab and mainly it is because that no matter where you are on the Island the 3 smokestacks from the Electricity Power Plant seem to be in the background.
Do visit with me and remember my tours of Hong Kong are kid friendly.
Well this young lady caught me by surprise, I was minding my own business walking to the Lamma Island Ferry Pier when I noticed her, it was so out of place, a concrete bench in a very public place and it sure looked like she was taking a lot of selfies... undoubtedly she is a major player on Instagram.... anyway, a jolly nice start to the day.
Hong Kong Private Tours Well it looks like the visually pretty Hong Kong Observation Wheel (Hong Kong Eye!) is going to be around until at least 2020 as the contract has just been renewed... I have to say I am not a fan mainly because as usual the Government messed up.. the EYE should have been on Kowloon side looking towards Hong Kong Island but what do I know!?
There is a place on Peak Road on the way to the Peak where on a sunny day you can get this magnificent view overlooking Aberdeen.... one slight problem, there is no footpath here and you are at the mercy of a lot of traffic coming up the hill and it can be quite terrifying when large buses, trucks and coaches go by! still it is worth it. WOW!
E - bikes - very big business in China, it is a multi billion US$ business and we have a first e - bikes now in Hong Kong, you hire them using an app... honestly I think they are a waste of time as they look pretty ugly and why is it green? green is seen as an unlucky colour in Hong Kong... I can see them catching on in the New Territories (plenty of open space and bike tracks) but NOT in urban Kowloon or on Hong Kong Island.
...and I have to say the hot and sunny weather brings out the very best of Hong Kong... isn't that one of the most magnificent skylines in the world?! - totally awesome, oh and it is the view of Hong Kong Island from Kowloon.
