Our Hong Kong at a Glance tour gives you the chance to visit many of the markets that reflect the uniqueness of this uber-modern city that contrasts brazenly with old traditions, values and customs. You’ll spend time browsing around the colorful markets near Mongkok before visiting Taiyuan Street in Wanchai, famous for its children’s toys, then end on Ko Shing Street, which houses a seemingly endless number of traditional Chinese pharmacies.
Your tailored tour will also include what Time Magazine calls ‘Asia’s Best Urban Hike’. You’ll journey across to Shek O Country Park to take on the ‘Dragon’s Back Hike’, a scenic walk around an idyllic island that feels a world away from the vast metropolis of Hong Kong.
You’ll also journey to the top of Victoria Peak to observe the city’s spectacular skyline from an elevated and dramatic perspective, climbing to the summit by an authentic tram ride. There will also be an opportunity to visit Hong Kong’s best museum which tells the story of the fascinating island, including its geographical development, the British handing over control of the island to China and all about the Hakka and Hoklo ethnic groups.
Prepare to be inspired by the fascinating combination of foreign and indigenous, old world and new – an example of how modern yet culture-filled Asian cities can be.
