Event description

Description

Hong Kong, once known as the gateway to Orient is still as impressive as ever. Overcoming, disease, colonial occupation, and more recent clashes with their sovereign and neighbour, China. During this 4 hour introduction on foot to Hong Kong Island, we will visit impressive panoramas, hidden history, culturally significant landmarks along with a chance to sample some fantastic street food. Your guide will give you an in depth knowledge of how Hong Kong came to be, and what makes it tick in the present.

Once inhabited by pirates, our first stop is Victoria Peak using our skip-the-line tickets for the Peak tram. Immerse yourself in the panoramic view of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon Peninsula... nothing sets the density and size of the city better!

Coming down by bus, we will visit the vibrant local neighbourhood of Wan Chai. A working dock and home to the original Taipans, the city and shoreline has grown immensely over the last 150 years. We will visit some of the older street markets, watching transactions at the old family run stalls selling dried meat, fish and candy. The local "wet" market for meat and fish, and also stop for some of the most popular street snacks such as pineapple buns, roasted meats and fishballs.

During this tour you will also gain an understanding of Taoism and the broader context of other religions in Hong Kong whilst visiting a local temple.

Finally, we will focus on the monuments and buildings in the financial district, Central, which complete the famous Hong Kong skyline. Many are architecturally pioneering, steeped in Feng Shui elements, and have rivalled each other over the centuries on many occasions.

In summary: a great introductory tour on foot for the history, landmarks and culture in Hong Kong!

NB: Tour may be cancelled with full refund within 24 hours, if minimum numbers are not reached.
