Tour Details

Hong Kong wasn’t always the international star it is today. On this Hong Kong walking tour, you will learn all about the area’s humble beginnings and how it’s developed over the years. You’ll swing by antique markets, modern high-rises, and other structures that show the stark contrast between old and new Hong Kong. If you want to learn the stories behind the sights, this Hong Kong culture tour will pique your curiosity and leave you with plenty to think about.

Your Hong Kong history tour begins with a trip through the area’s famous market scene. Markets are a Hong Kong staple that have survived throughout its history. You will get to stop by the Western Market, Herbal Medicine Quarter, and Hollywood Road. The wares you’ll find at these locales reflect that of eras long gone; you’ll find everything from ancient herbal remedies to Han Dynasty pottery.

You’ll follow these stops with a trip to some of Hong Kong’s modern sights such as Tai Ping Shan, the PMQ, and Central. Tai Ping Shan is a busy street that’s home to a number of cafes, restaurants, and art galleries whose architecture displays a western influence. The newly opened PMQ; the former Police Married Quarters has been transformed into the designer hub of the city. Young brands and independent designers showcase and sell their products in the old dormitory units in the heart of the city, while paying a subsidised rate. PMQ is the last word on cool in Hong Kong town.

Take a break from walking and catch a ride up the iconic 800-metre long Central-Mid-Levels Escalators, the world’s longest outdoor escalator system on your way to Central, Hong Kong’s business district. You can’t help but look in awe at the avant-garde skyscrapers and structures that tower over the area. Your tour will finish at the Central MTR station.
