If you’re looking for a real local experience and the most authentic (and tastiest) food 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 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!

Eat your way around a 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, all at a local price!

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.

Edward was amazing!

Edward walked us around the HK night market, helped us get the most delicious street food around, and he was really knowledgeable and personable. Totally recommended.

We shared a wonderfull day in HK. Lulu was charming, showed us a lot and took us to places where we wold never had been. Of course we got all the topics of the city (Star Ferry, The Peak and so many others including the bustling streets of the city). As a foodie she took us to a typical Dim Sum restaurant, also a place that we would never visit alone.
