The Essential Hong Kong Custom Walk
Hong Kong’s modern veneer of skyscrapers and state-of-the-art shopping complexes is deceptive. Once you know how and where to look, it peels away and you begin to see another world, another culture as it was, and is.
We created The Essential Hong Kong Walk to give you the keys to this other, less visible city. From the latest, up to the minute current events and political affairs, to the subtle traces of Chinese traditional practices that have been going on for a thousand years, we’ll unpack, de-mystify, and open up our Hong Kong for you.
The Itinerary: We Follow the Rhythm of the City
Rather than a set itinerary, we prefer to leave our plan somewhat open-ended. We think the beauty of cities is that they offer us unexpected moments, serendipitous encounters. Hong Kong has that in spades–walking a single block of this city densely packed with sights, sounds and smells is like walking ten blocks of any other!
Your host is an expert, not a tour guide, a professional journalist, writer, chef or academic. Since we all know the city like the back of our hands, and we speak the language, we can help you indulge your curiosity wherever it may take us, even if that leads to an impromptu detour that’s “off the list”.
Using Hong Kong, its people and its streets as our laboratory, we bring Hong Kong to life for you: History, society, politics, culture, traditions, food.
