You’ll join one of our food-loving Hong Kong hosts to explore Hong Kong's food culture in the heart of the colorful Kowloon neighborhood. Game changer - you’ll do so after dark.

Lit by thousands of neon signs, this lively district really comes alive when the sun sets and with a name that means ‘9 dragons’, it’s no surprise.

See the most incredible views of the Symphony of Lights and Hong Kong Island’s skyline over the water before your host guides you through the maze of streets that make up this exciting area.

Eat your way around traditional night markets where vendors sell all the classics like steamed crab, cheung fun (chewy rice noodles), siu mai (a street version of a steamed dim sum classic) and fried octopus tentacles - this is where you’ll find some of the best food in the city!

Head to Dundas Street and explore the gaai, or back alleys, where you’ll find tiny bars selling drinks ranging from herbal medicines to beers!

When you are done, why not grab a seat at one of the bars with your host who will share local secrets with you, like where the locals go at 5 am to eat fried squid balls after a night of partying, and where the best underground clubs are.
