11. Hammer Hill Road, 8 King Tung Street. Golden Harvest studios used to be there.

13. Happy Valley, Muslim Cemetery.

14. Shanghai Street
https://zapodaj.net/7f73fd9c657bd.jpg.html

15. St. Paul's Church Ruins, Macau. Although it was used for 1978 scene in Game of Death, Bruce most probably was there anyway because this place is situated right next to the street where rickshaw scenes were shot for Fist of Fury.

Thanks again Milosz.

Questions:

1. How did you find Shanghai Street? Is it named and shown in ETD?

2. That location where Angela Mao-Ying's fight scene took place, where the stuntman falls into, is that ravine and stream still there? From your 2017 photo, it looks like the ravine has been filled in.
