Itinerary

Your guide will meet you at the Central MTR station, where you’ll get ready to begin your neighborhood walking tour. Skipping crowds of tourists at popular sites, you’ll be directed to under-the-radar attractions like Statue Square, a picturesque remnant of British-rule with its bust of Queen Victoria.

Enrich your experience of the city with your guide’s insider knowledge. Learning about the art of feng shui and the everyday lives of real Hong Kong residents, you’ll discover the city’s overlooked gems with visits to Cat Street Market—a treasure trove of antiques—and authentic eateries. Get a taste of traditional culture by browsing through a Chinese medicine market and load up on local delicacies at the city’s fresh food stalls.

During this quirky, off-the-beaten-track 4-hour tour, you’ll also take a ride on one of the world’s longest escalators. Your walk will be topped off with a visit to Man Mo, a one-of-a-kind 19th-century Taoist temple dedicated to the gods of literature.
