What started off as an obsession with Enter the Dragon locations (on the original Livespace version of this blog, at least) has blossomed into a reasonably thorough consolidated list of many Lee-related locations here in Hong Kong (and Macau). I’m certainly no expert (at least not compared to some of the cool people who have helped me put the list together) but I am in the enviable position of being here in Hong Kong and can blend this info with some of my own local knowledge and give some modern day context to many of the sites.
Sometimes it is hard for Lee fans to understand that modern Hong Kong is a vastly different place to the one Lee was familiar with. The pace of development throughout the 70′s and 80′s was massive and as such many of the sites Lee would have known well have completely changed or disappeared altogether. To be honest, we’re quite lucky to have the ones that still remain – or at least remain for the time being.
So what we have below is a list of various places, some featured in his various films, some part of his personal life and some are just thrown in because there may be some obscure tenuous link I read about in an old magazine somewhere. Anyway, enjoy and feel free to help me enhance – I’m not a Lee expert (nor am I a collector) just a long time fan with a big interest in Hong Kong, so it is highly likely there is a mistake about dates times etc. Please feel free to correct in the comments section below.
