Did all VIPs get good weather during their Hong Kong visits?

Everyone is equal before the weather!

All travelers want to meet pleasant weather during their trips.

Travelers like enough sunshine, mild temperature and high visibility at their destinations.

High visibility and good weather make photo taking easy. Photo taken at the top of Victoria Peak shows you the southern part of Hong Kong Island.

 

Some clients once asked Frank the tour guide whether the VIPs got good weather or not when they visited Hong Kong.

Did all VIPs get good weather during their Hong Kong visits? No…

 

Frank is going to show everyone that even the famous celebrities met the weather problems during their visits in Hong Kong in this post.

Frank will also show his solutions for his clients under the same unpleasant weather conditions.


VIPs’ weather problems  in Hong Kong and Frank’s solutions
US President Grant met bad weather and Frank’s solution
British Duke of Connaught met rainy and foggy weather and Frank’s solution
Chinese Prince Chun Zaifeng met hot and humid weather and Frank’s solution
Comedian Charlie Chaplin met cold and wet weather and Frank’s solution

 

Frank believes that everyone is equal before the weather.

All travelers should stay calm when they meet unpleasant weather.

Instead of moaning, travelers should find the solution.

Thunderstorm is coming!

Thunderstorm is common in Hong Kong’s summertime.

 

Frank is unable to offer good weather to clients on the day with bad weather.

But Frank’s Hong Kong private car tour is the best solution to keep clients’ easy private tour experience under unpleasant weather.

Good reviews of clients reflect Frank’s private tour service can help clients to get the easy private tour experience.

US President Grant met rainy weather and Frank’s solution 

Different from President Trump, who faces impeachment after his tenure, the US President Grant enjoyed a two-year world tour after stepping down.

Grant visited Hong Kong from 30 April to 12 May 1879.

During his 13-day visit, Grant first enjoyed the good weather in the British colony.

However, when Grant returned from Macau on 10 May, he received the message about the postponement of a garden party for him to the evening of 12 May due to bad weather.

As Grant would leave Hong Kong in the morning of 12 May, Grant just wrote an open letter to apologize for not being able to attend the party.

Now if clients meet the bad weather during Frank the tour guide’s Hong Kong private car tour, clients won’t get wet inside the private car.

Frank and private car driver can fine-tune the itineraries and bring clients to the indoor attractions easily.

For example, Frank can offer the docent tour for clients in the Hong Kong Museum of History to dodge the bad weather outside.

5?: “He was very helpful with logistics and communication…”

Laura DeHority (Toursbylocals) from the US

5?Review: Frank gave our group a tour of Macau and also a tour of Hong Kong. He was very knowledgeable on many topics and was much more conversational than simply presenting a canned presentation. He was very helpful with logistics and communication and offered excellent options for us to make the most of our time when the weather was less than optimal. (Browse private tour page)
Frank’s response: Thank you very much, Laura! Apart from helping clients to make good use of their valuable time, the good logistics arrangement, i.e. the included private car with driver, offers the clients and private guide the private, easy and comfortable environment. So the guide is no need to worry about the logistics issues. The guide can get more room to make better tour commentary and chit-chat with the clients.(Message Frank to plan YOUR private tour)

British Duke of Connaught met rainy and foggy weather and Frank’s solution

During the colonial era, British royal family members’ visits to Hong Kong were the great event in the British colony.

The third son of Queen Victoria, Duke of Connaught, visited Hong Kong on 31 March to 4 April 1890.

People rolled out the red carpet to welcome the prince.

However the dragon dance parade on 1 April was postponed due to rainy weather.

On 2 April, although the Duke could take photos for the dragon dance parade, he could see nothing during the Peak Tram ride and at the Victoria Peak due to the foggy weather.

It is difficult to see the view of Victoria Harbor under foggy weather.

Now if Frank the tour guide sees the weather at the Victoria Peak is foggy at the start of the private car tour, Frank can postpone the visit to the Peak and bring clients to other attractions first.

 

The Peak can be very foggy.

5?: “Touring with Frank was excellent…”

Thomas Lynch (Toursbylocals) from the UK

5?Review: Touring with Frank was excellent. We really enjoyed the half day tour of Hong Kong Island seeing all the highlights. The only disappointment was the fog around the viewpoint and even with this Frank juggled the itinerary round to give us the best chance of seeing something. After the tour finished he even helped us with a restaurant and to order lunch. The tour was well organized, Frank was informative and funny and I wouldn’t hesitate to book him again.

Frank’s response: Thank you very for your five stars rating, Thomas! Your review shows the important flexibility of our private car tour program. When clients have the workable requests or when it is necessary to make the change (e.g. due to bad weather) to the program, the included car with driver can change the route easily for clients and guide. The guide can still focus on doing the basic but important job, making tour commentary. That is why our private car tour program prevails!
(Message Frank to plan YOUR private tour)

 

If clients cannot see anything at the lookout point at the Peak, Frank can try to show the view of Hong Kong to clients at the Stubbs Road Lookout Point on the Mid-level or on the Victoria Harbor front.

Chinese Prince Chun Zaifeng met hot and humid weather and Frank’s solution

Prince Chun Zaifeng was the most senior royal family member of Qing Dynasty to visit Hong Kong (24 July 1901 to 25 July 1901).

Prince Chun

Zaifeng even became the Prince-Regent in 1908.

He was actually the father of the last Chinese emperor.

Hong Kong was Zaifeng’s layover stop on the way to Germany to apologize for the death of a German diplomat in Beijing during the Boxer Uprising in 1900.

However his ship’s arrival at Hong Kong was delayed due to low tide.

Zaifeng recollected later that during the short stopover tour, besides enjoying the view at Victoria Peak, he experienced the exceptionally hot and humid weather of Hong Kong summertime.

Victoria Harbour view

You can enjoy the most beautiful Victoria Harbor view at the Victoria Peak in the hottest months, July and August, in Hong Kong. Layover travelers can visit Victoria Peak and see other highlights easily during Frank’s Hong Kong layover private car tour.

 

Now if your cruise’s arrival at Hong Kong’s Kai Tak Cruise Terminal or Ocean Terminal is delayed due to bad weather, Frank the tour guide can fine-tune the private tour itinerary for you and still show you Hong Kong’s highlights easily by the help of the efficient private car with driver.

5?An excellent tour of some of the lesser known Hong Kong attractions…

5?Review: An excellent tour of some of the lesser known Hong Kong attractions.. Frank and his drive were helpful and friendly. They adjusted well when we were unavoidably delayed for our scheduled meeting. Highly recommended! (Browse private tour page)
Frank’s response: Thank you very much, John! The Kowloon cultural Highlights limousine private tour program covers the lesser known but good and interesting cultural sightseeing points in Kowloon, Nan Lian Garden, Chi Lin Nunnery, Kowloon Walled City Park etc. The easy and enjoyable private tour is good way to experience the in-depth local culture, Hong Kong history and Chinese culture. (Message Frank to plan YOUR private tour)

 

Hot and wet weather is still part of the experience during your private tour in Hong Kong in the summertime.

The air-conditioned private car is helpful.

 

Frank the tour guide’s clients can certainly feel better than Prince Chun Zaifeng during the transfers between different sightseeing points in the comfortable air-conditioned private car.

5?: “We were happily surprised at how comfortable we were…”

John Storms(Easy Hong Kong Private Tour) from the US

5? Review: We were a little nervous booking a full day Hong Kong tour knowing how hot and steamy the weather can be. Sure enough the day of our tour had a heat advisory issued. We were happily surprised at how comfortable we were with our two children thru the whole day. Frank whisked us from the AC car to site to site and back to the car where the driver had water waiting. The boat ride on the harbor was my favorite stop. My kids enjoyed the Coastal Defense museum at the site of an old fort, which was an improvised stop by Frank to beat the heat. The cable car ride to Victoria Peak was a family favorite ending with some amazing photos. Knowledge and endearing tour guide who catered the tour to match our expectations, highly recommend.(Browse private tour page)
Frank’s response: Thank you very much, John! It is important for us to offer clients relaxation and comfort during our private car tour, especially during the hot and humid summer time. Private car arrangement guarantees clients a place to relax during car rides between sightseeing points. As the beautiful Nan Lian Garden is largely outdoor, it is good to replace the walk in the garden by the visit to the air-conditioned Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defense. At the museum, YOU can see the military history of Hong Kong and the nice sea view of the Eastern part of Hong Kong! The included private car with driver also helps the guide to improvise the tour itinerary more easily.(Message Frank to plan YOUR private tour)

Comedian Charlie Chaplin met cold and wet weather and Frank’s solution

The famous comedian Charlie Chaplin visited Hong Kong two times.

The rare cold weather during his short one-day trip on 10 May 1932 impressed Charlie.

The foggy weather delayed Charlie’s cruise’s arrival at Hong Kong’s Kowloon Wharf (today’s Ocean Terminal) for 10 hours on 12 March 1936.

Charlie even decided to shorten his trip in Hong Kong because his fiancée felt unwell under the wet weather on 13 March 1936.

Now some Frank the tour guide’s clients may still underestimate the cold weather of Hong Kong.

Frank is willing to walk an extra mile to bring clients to buy extra thick clothes during the private car tour.

5?: “Very thoughtful & kind…”

Jay Cassidy (Toursbylocals) from Australia

5? Review: Tour was excellent. Very educational. Frank had excellent knowledge of the history of the sites we visit. It was great to get info and learn something about Hong Kong. The weather was freezing & wet but this did not stop Frank taking us to the tour spots & despite the conditions we still see the amazing sights. Very thoughtful & kind person. He use his time to take us to shops to get more warm clothes for our kids who were very cold. The lunch was the best food we eat while in HK. Highly recommend, THX 🙂 (Browse private tour page)
Frank’s response: Thank you! Merry Christmas! See you in the hot summer time in Hong Kong! (Message Frank to plan YOUR private tour)

 

The delicious dim sum and hot Chinese tea during the included local lunch can help the clients to recharge their energy.

The AC in the private car can also make clients feel easier and more comfortable under the humid weather.

Frank’s Hong Kong private car tour is the best solution to travelers’ weather problems

It is not uncommon for travelers to meet weather problems during their trips.
