What you’ll do

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.

Mong Kok Street Food revealed

Victor was our most informative, enthusiastic and passionate guide for a 4 hour street food tour of MK for the 3 of us. He tailored the food experiences to our"foodie tragic" needs. Many new tastes were tried-cold noodles a delicious surprise!-as well as some more familiar eg Egg tarts, Shanghai dumplings..Victor's English is excellent and it was great that we had him to communicate with the different street vendors in Cantonese, as ours is almost non existent! His knowledge of history of food, place, and social implications, gave us an insight to Hong Kong that we had not had before. This tour gave us confidence to revisit the different markets & street stalls in MK on our own later in our stay in HK.. Top marks & thanks to Victor ( a proud Cantonese guide) for a most enjoyable & informative tour

Excellent tour

Victor was our tour guide on Monday evening. From 6-10. It was a highly informative and fun evening. He showed us a side of Hong Kong that we would not have seen by ourselves. He brought us up to see the lights of the city from Gardens Hill. He also brought us to a little local restaurant where we had some delicious local food. I can’t recommend this tour highly enough. Thanks Victor for a lovely evening.

Kowloon Night Markets, Hong Kong full day tour

We were lucky to spend a full day and half day with Lulu exploring Hong Kong and Kowloon island. She met and exceeded our expectations at every turn. She was made us feel immediately comfortable and was able to exactly match what we were looking for in terms of our itinerary. Being a first time traveler to Asia, I was very unsure what to expect, but i can give the highest recommendation to City Unscripted Tours and specifically Lulu to provide an experience of a lifetime.
