  • Kowloon: The Dark Side of Hong Kong Walking Tour

    6. Kowloon: The Dark Side of Hong Kong Walking Tour

    When you visit Hong Kong, you must think Hong Kong is a city of prosperity: the beautiful skyline in Victoria Harbor, the men in suits and the many Tesla you see on the road.

    This was an extremely interesting insight into the side not normally seen by tourists, particularly looking at the housing situation in a very crowded Hong Kong. S.P. was a great guide showing us the area with a lot of local knowledge and willing to answer all questions. There was a walk through the animal market, flower market and the bird market as well which started the tour off. There is a little walking but not onerous but wear comfortable shoes. Do not go if you are easily upset by seeing homeless people on the streets or if you may get upset by the living conditions seen.

What people are saying about Hong Kong

My wonderful hiking trip ⛰ would not have been possible without Rory as my excellent guide to the ins and outs and the beautiful trails of the ⛰ complex. For those four hours we were jungle explorers of the Hong Kong hinterlands, befriending mock vipers and pregnant, -bellied salamanders . And enjoying the lush greenery and rich verdure of our wild and untamed surroundings, and we are warmly welcomed by the au naturale and cooly refreshung shower of waterfalls ️ offered by the wondrously beauteous works of nature ! It is at times tiring tho not exhaustingly so, but absolutely worth breaking a sweat for! One will most certainly gain a greater perspective on life after this simple yet great experience!

This was an extremely interesting insight into the side not normally seen by tourists, particularly looking at the housing situation in a very crowded Hong Kong. S.P. was a great guide showing us the area with a lot of local knowledge and willing to answer all questions. There was a walk through the animal market, flower market and the bird market as well which started the tour off. There is a little walking but not onerous but wear comfortable shoes. Do not go if you are easily upset by seeing homeless people on the streets or if you may get upset by the living conditions seen.

The tour guide was very nice.. he know lots of HK hiking trails..I was very enjoying hiking with him. I will definitely join him again next time.

The tour was organised by a local guide who was funny, but was also able to convey the story behind the HK shinny stores and modern skyscrapers.

So good even my 13 year old son said this was the best day we had in HK.
