My guide was Mr. Martin Heyes, and he, as well as the tour, was excellent. For anyone who enjoys history, this is a wonderful walk and Martin was terrific, particularly since he is a former British Army officer and a former Chief Inspector from the Hong Kong Police department. He was able to provide a complete depiction of the events that unfolded between the mostly Canadian defenders as well as what the terrain and city was like over 70 years ago. We met up at Hong Kong’s Post Office where we boarded a bus and traveled up to the mountains. The walk itself requires somebody of at least average fitness, lots of steps, lots of up and down. If you can walk (not ride) an 18 hole golf course on a hot and humid day, then you should be fine. The bunkers, trails, ambush sites, and such are easy to get to, and this was a great walk along the heritage trail. Although we visited these sites we also walked around them with an open mind, asking questions of each other about the tactics that were likely employed that were part of the larger, better documented assault. This led to discovering one or two hidden sites from the Matheson garden near the upper pill box on Jardine's Lookout. Since the defenders were mostly Canadian, check out YouTube and watch "Savage Christmas 1941" for a documentary that discusses the action at this site. It is enlightening. Many of the sites and tunnels can also be found on this website www.gwulo.com. At the conclusion of the walk Martin gave me a little souvenir (a calendar), which was very kind. As you can tell I highly recommend the Wong Nai Chung Gap Trail walk, located at Tai Tam Reservoir Road, Hong Kong, China with Martin Heyes via the Hong Kong Walk tours. Thank you for reading.
