Born in London, Pete Spurrier arrived in Hong Kong in 1993 after a two-year trip along the Silk Road from Turkey to China. Expecting to stay in the then-colony only a month, he soon found himself beguiled by Hong Kong's cosmopolitan character and wild scenery, and has been based in the city ever since.
In true Hong Kong style, he balances a part-time career as a movie villain with interests in film production, travel writing and publishing.
Pete has contributed articles to the South China Morning Post, Hong Kong Business, Hong Kong Discovery and Prestige.
In books, he has authored The Leisurely Hiker's Guide to Hong Kong and The Serious Hiker's Guide to Hong Kong, as well as contributing to other publications such as The Insight Guide to South China and Hong Kong Explorer.
