What you'll do

Hong Kong is famous for so much, from the staggering view at Victoria Peak to feasting on street food in Tsim Sha Tsui. While you could never experience everything that this collision of cultures has to offer in just 4 hours, having a local insider to guide you through the maze will help you make the most of it! Munch on some traditional egg tarts at the Ladies’ Market. Head for Yuen Po Street Bird Garden, where elderly vendors preen their feathered friends under the restful spell of birdsong or visit Man Ho Temple - the oldest in Hong Kong. Get caught up in the ultra-modern escalator route of Mid-Levels, or skip all the madness and head straight for Governor’s Garden at the Peak. With a local insider, the possibilities are endless!

Where you’ll go

On Hong Kong Island, discover the collision of east and west as your host leads you through the skyscrapers and suits of Central, the city’s gleaming financial district. Blink and you might miss the traditional Chinese junk boat gliding across Victoria Harbor, then head east to neighboring Sheung Wan, a once-residential area where the mood changes drastically. Here, busy locals are packed into traditional cha chan teng streetside eateries on the ground level of Victorian-era buildings and bohemian thrift stores are perused by hipsters. Or perhaps explore Kowloon, the sprawling mainland district and let neon lights guide you along Nathan Road, or perfect your haggling skills in Kowloon’s gritty Mong Kok neighborhood.
