Flatfoot in Hong Kong - Bud Spencer (1975) - Central Vehicular Ferry Pier, Hong Kong

The end of the chase ends at the old Vehicular ferry pier in Central.

The pier was situated in front of the old Central Fire station next to Jubilee Street (that's the old fire station poking up at the top of the pier in the lower shot) - basically directly to the north of the Hang Seng HQ where One IFC now stands. Here is the current view from Streetview. The walkways over Connaught Road seem to mimic the two prongs of the pier - it's possible this was an intentional homage by the architect, but I'm not sure. The pier was demolished in 1994 for the IFC reclamation. Gwulo also has information here.
