Das Mädchen von Hongkong - Joachim Fuchsberger (1973) - Bristol Avenue, Tsim Sha Tsui

The girl from Hong Kong find accommodation at a bar. The Honolulu Bar and Restaurant was a real place and was situated at #2 Bristol Avenue in Tsim Sha Tsui. The earlier rooftop chase was filmed on the roofs of the buildings in that area, although this specific location appears to have been replaced in 1976 by the Yes & Right House. Actually it looks to me as though some site formation work was going on at the corner of Mody and Bristol, so this is possibly the groundwork for the construction of the aforementioned building. This means that the exact location might also have been where the Yes and Right Building currently ends. It's certainly possible that the street numbers were changed when everything was razed.

The first and last shots show us looking south down Bristol Avenue towards Mody Road, the second shot is facing back the other way towards Carnarvon Road. The high view on picture 3 was most likely captured from Mirador Mansions which occupies the block where the camera appears to have been placed.
