The 58-year-old was pictured by the Irish Daily Star walking through the streets of one of Asia's wealthiest cities earlier this year.

The newspaper is reporting that the mobster, nicknamed the Dapper Don, is hiding out at the €5,000 per night Peninsula Hotel in the city.

The photos emerged as rival crime boss Gerry 'The Monk' Hutch was spotted in the Turkish city of Istanbul.

It is believed that Hutch has been staying there "on and off" in Turkey for the last number of months.

Both men have been locked in a bitter gangland feud that has already claimed the lives of ten men including two innocent bystanders. Most recently father-of-three Trevor O'Neill was shot dead in a case of mistaken identity in August.

The hitmen were attempting to kill Hutch's nephew Jonathan but shot the wrong man.

Kinahan moved from his base  in Marbella, Spain earlier this year and had been living in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for some time.

His son Daniel remains in Spain.
