Explore the amazing contrasts of Hong Kong on this guided tour to its busiest areas and calmest corners. Soak up the city's atmosphere, from the tranquility of a Tang Dynasty garden and Buddhist temple to the noise and exciting street life of Kowloon.
What to Expect
Home to roughly 2.1 million people, the northern bank of Victoria Harbour (or Kowloon Side, as the locals call it) is one of the most densely populated areas in Hong Kong, but it is also one of the most diverse.
The tour's starting point, at the heart of this bustling metropolis, is the beautiful and tranquil Nan Lian Gardens, designed as a traditional Tang Dynasty area for contemplation. These meticulously kept gardens feature a miniaturized interpretation of traditional Chinese landscapes.
From there, enter the peaceful atmosphere of the Chi Lin Nunnery, where Buddhist nuns meditate and seek enlightenment. Then, experience something totally different at the Taoist Temple of Wong Tai Sin, where tens of thousands of worshippers pray to their ancestors and to the Temple deities.
Take some time to explore the complex and learn about a few of the mysteries of the Taoist religion. Then, head towards some of the world's busiest streets, right in the heart of Kowloon. Once there, visit Hong Kong's famous street markets, where the locals go to jostle and find a bargain.
