Dim Sum after dark: experience Kowloon

4 hours | from $90.00 per person

If you’re looking for a real local experience and the most authentic (and tastiest) dim sum in the city, there’s no better neighbourhood to explore than Kowloon. Lit by thousands of neon signs, this bustling district really comes alive after dark - and with a name that means ‘9 dragons’, it’s no surprise! See spectacular views of the Island’s skyline, get lost in the mazes of market stalls and rub shoulders with the locals when you grab some incredible street food or dim sum at Kowloon’s night markets and late cafes. Continue the party all night or just eat your way through the local staples - with a local by your side, a night in Kowloon will be one to remember!

What you’ll do

Join a local and head to the mainland for a night of exploring Kowloon, the city’s most exciting district to be in as the sun sets.

Get a little lost exploring the tiny shops and market stalls in little side streets and back alleys, as well as the most famous night markets in Mong Kok, shopping for souvenirs and treasures to take home or just soaking up the atmosphere.

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! 

Eat your way around a traditional night markets where vendors sell all the classics like steamed crab and dim sum - this is where you’ll find some of the best food in the city, all at a local price!

Get tips and tricks where you can continue the night - this is one of the best places in the city to party! Your host will share local secrets with you, like where the locals go at 5am to eat fried squid balls after a night of partying, and where the best underground clubs are.

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do and eat. 

Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.
