Tour Details

Tour "the land between" Hong Kong and mainland China on this exciting day tour of Hong Kong's New Territories. See an exotic mix of rural countryside mixed with a modern flair. Travel the region between Hong Kong and mainland China and experience the Yuem Yuen Institute, view spectacular vistas from Tai Mo Shan mountain, visit the traditional walled village of Fanling, and see fish-farming, all included in your guided Hong Kong tour.

Begin your day at the Yuem Yuen Institute. Some think of the word "institute" and conjure up scientific labs and research parks, but don't let the name fool you. Founded in 1950, the tranquil grounds of the Yuem Yuen Institute served to spread the principles of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taioism. Temples, monasteries, and religious relics and monuments sprawl the gardens and ponds. It is definitely worth the visit just to see a replica of Beijing's Temple of Heaven (Tian Tan). Next, your New Territories, or the Land Between tour continues to the peak of Tai Mo Shan mountain, the tallest in Hong Kong, for some spectacular views of Hong Kong Island.

After your Tai Mo Shan mountain tour, visit the historic Hakka Fanling walled village. As the native people of Hong Kong, the Hakkas live in fortified village communities perserving much of their traditions and culture from generation to generation. Next, travel the boundary between mainland China and the New Territories and stop at a lookout point along Luk Keng Road. Take in the natural surroundings of Starling Inlet and the quaint town of Sha Tau Kok on the boundary of mainland China before heading to Sam Mun Tsai to see fish-farming in submerged cages. This guided tour brings you out of Hong Kong to see the countryside and attractions that link Hong Kong to mainland China. Get away from the usual tourist spots to see the real land between the metropolis and the nation next door.

Please Note: This tour concludes at Star House.
