Noble House (Mini series) - Pierce Brosnan (1988) - Tin Hau Temple, Repulse Bay

One of the main tourist sites (other than the beach itself of course) at Repulse Bay is the colourful waterside temple with its large Tin Hau statue looking out across the sea. We've seen the place before on this blog on multiple occasions now. In Noble House it's where Dunross goes to meet Four Finger Wu to discuss their shady dealings.

I've yet to visit (although have been to the beach) and from photos it looks almost like a shrunken down version of Tiger Balm Gardens with some kitsch plasterwork and tiling going on, still, I shall reserve judgement until I have seen the place first hand. Here are the grabs.

  1. It is also where David Soul has lunch with "Mrs Hamilton" in the 1987 TV Movie "Harry's Hong Kong" aka "China Hand"

    In case you don't know it

    1. Hi John - thanks for the comment. I haven't seen that yet but sounds like it might be one to add to my ever growing 'to do' list :-) Many thanks, Phil
