I Spy (TV Series) - Robert Culp (1965) - Tiger Balm Gardens, Tai Hang

Once one of HK's most popular attractions, it was sold to Cheung Kong Holdings (aka Li Ka Shing) a while ago and has subsequently been turned into a highrise development called "The Legend". Luckily for us the centrepiece, Haw Par Mansion, was preserved and is currently undergoing the process in which it will be decided how it can be used.

Anyway, another part of the Affair in T'sien Cha sees our intrepid duo here as well wandering around not only the gardens but also the terrace and swimming pool that were adjacent to the mansion.

Lots of snaps but all worthy of inclusion I feel simply because this place has gone and won't be back. I think that there should have been efforts to preserve the pagoda as well but it wasn't to be. I will head back there at some point and show you all what's left.
