Heisser Hafen Hongkong - Horst Frank (1962) - Fei Ngo Shan, Kowloon

Immediately following the car around Peak Road it suddenly appears on Clearwater Bay Road about to turn up Fei Ngo Shan Road up to Fei Ngo Shan (aka Kowloon Peak). I can't say for sure if the scenes between the turning into the road and arriving at the top are all filmed on Fei Ngo Shan Road, but it wouldn't surprise me. Once at the top there are some great views to be had.

Clearwater Bay Road into Fei Ngo Shan Road

At the top the car gets stuck in the passageway where Fei Ngo shan Road crests the ridge. We've seen this section of the road multiple times on this blog but most recently was here (second picture down).


Next we have a rather spectacular car crash down the side of the hill. I doubt this sort of stunt would be allowed so easily now, but you never know.

Lion Rock can be seen on the left with Beacon Hill beyond. 
There's that cutting again in the background
Those hillocks in the centre now have an electricity pylon on them

Finally, there's a really spectacular view over to the actual peak of Kowloon Peak/Fei Ngo Shan. That ridge is fairly overgrown now but still has a trail along it.

  1. Hi Phil,

    This is off-topic.

    I remember that area had been abused by radio control glider owners even before Kai Tai was closed. The slopes had been littered with model plain parts......

    1. I seem to remember they do that over on Clearwater Bay as well - planes and model helicopters. Now I guess drones are taking over the airpsace...:-)
