Was Mad Dogs at the top, once? I only remember it being down the bottom of the road in the basement.

Yeah, it was at the top once - just round the corner at the top on the left side.

I see they have painted the Star Ferry.

I worked at the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club just near Jumbo's for a while.

Nice pics, Marmers.

How times change. I remember when Bank of China was the tallest building. Actually, I remember when Connaught Centre (later Jardine House) was the tallest...

Hong Kong the perfect blend of east and west, been 6 times in last 15 months twice being for work. Oasis Hong Kong RIP was fantastic used to fly from Gatwick to Hong Kong for 135GBP few nights in Hong Kong had an amazing bird there from time I worked there then 70GBP for a flight to Thailand
Would be my choice of place to live if I had the finances or full time employment offer.
As for the peak it is spectacular I find best time for going around 5pm so you get the daylight pics followed by sunset pics then gets dark very quickly for the buildings to start lighting up.
After the peak open top bus from the base to Victoria Harbour to see the symphony of lights, across on boat to Wanchai and get steaming!!
If you are in Hong Kong on a weekend and like a bit of a drink and play about with the Indo and Flipo chicks Sunday afternoon around 2pm is the best time, get into the New Makatti bar/club cheap drinks full of drunken lovlies

Wasn't the Connaught nicknamed the Swiss Cheese building or something like that?

I remember that time well. An expat brat out for Summer/Xmas vacs drinking San Mig for 1$ a bottle unless the 7th Fleet was in harbour when the price doubled and one had to convince the mama san we were resident Brits.

I recall Tsimshatsui was the place for the bars and buying 10$ lady drinks hoping to cop a decent feel but the pocket money rarely stretched to both illicit sex and drunkeness. Occasionally, garrisoned troops, mostly from Irish regiments, would take pity and include us in their rounds and just very occasionally we were allowed to tag along to Hennessy Rd Wanchai to frequent one of the many brothels there. I have fond memories of waiting in line for a whoopsie whilst blue movies were shown in one room and in the other one could gamble with the girls wearing pink baby dolls and little else.

My father would take me to the Hyatt for a late steak supper where they served coffee free all night and the American officers would congregate and score an expensive hooker from the pimp who set up his business there after midnight.

Was everything better in the late 60s and early 70s or am I just getting old?

The only time I've been to Hong Kong was in 1984 on my way to the U.S.A. flew into the old airport where you could see some old fella pulling his plonker in his apartment as he smoked a durry.

Did not get out of the airport as it was only a change of planes.

I'll be there in a few weeks time, will be staying smack in the middle of Mongkok and will spend my time roaming the city taking cracker photos.

Will pay a visit to Disneyland, I'll try and put one through Snow White, wish me luck, will leave the dwarfs for Marmite to shag.

Really looking forward to this trip as I've always wanted to get there, I'm on a hunter gatherer trip to suss it out for a return journey latter on.

I'll post a few piccy when i get back.
