What makes this tour special

East Meets West

Hong Kong is a city of opposites – a kaleidoscopic fusion of East and West, past and future. Historic buildings perch amid towering skyscrapers; tranquil temples sit alongside bustling highways. Discover these contradictions for yourself on this immersive half day tour, as you’re guided through many of the top sites in the city, whilst also discovering hidden backstreets and local neighbourhoods with your knowledgeable guide. 

Your tour will begin at the Tsim Sha promenade, where you’ll make your way past the iconic Clock tower, a prominent reminder of British colonial rule, and the Avenue of Stars, Hong Kong’s answer to Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. From here you’ll cross the bay on the famous Star Ferry – over a century old, these boats are still unbeatable in the stunning views they offer of Victoria Harbour and the city’s incredible skyline. 

Futurist Skyscrapers and Tranquil Temples

Once on Hong Kong island, your guide will lead you through Central, the financial hub and political heart of the city. Starting at Statue Square, you’ll walk beneath futuristic skyscrapers, learning how the ancient art of Feng Shui influenced these modern architectural giants, before moving into the small streets of the Sheung Wan district, populated with traditional Chinese medicine shops and some of the oldest buildings in the city. Surrounded by high-rises, you can grab a welcome break from the chaos of these busy streets inside the tranquil Man Mo Temple.  

Take a step back in time as you hop aboard Hong Kong’s iconic ‘Ding Ding’ trams to explore this lively north corridor of the Island. Follow your guide through local hotspots as you traverse the mid-level escalators, winding your way through the buzzing microcosm of life in the Soho district. Finally, you’ll ride the unmissable Peak tram up to Victoria peak, arriving at the pinnacle of these steep slopes to a remarkable panoramic vision of Hong Kong’s unique skyline.
