Weiße Fracht für Hongkong - Dietmar Schönherr (1963) - Castle Peak Bay, Tuen Mun

And then after a few more steps we suddenly arrive in Tuen Mun. Even as the crow flies it's nearly a 50km trip in the space of 30 seconds. Not bad. I know Brad Harris is famous for being a super fit bodybuilder (he is currently still going very strong even in his 80s) but even this takes some beating.


Look closely and you'll see the original Tai Pak behind Harris. It was a new addition to Castle Peak Bay and had only been here after for a year or so after being towed from Aberdeen to make way for the current replacement. It's likely the top picture was also filmed inside the old Tai Pak because it looks as though the window frame on the right is the same green colour used for the roof and the view over to Castle Peak has a similar angle.

  1. It's really a shame the original Tai Pak wasn't preserved-so many famous people dined there, and it figured in some of the most iconic films set in HK.

    1. I wonder what ever happened to it though, Doug. Lots of rumours about it being moved elsewhere but I suspect it was just junked.
