A proud member of People's Republic of China, Hong Kong has had a long and fascinating history which can be witnessed in its streets, of course if you know where to look. You may have been to Hong Kong before but do you know the story of how it came to be? Join this tour to walk the streets with a local guide who'll give you the inside story of Hong Kong and help you experience how a fusion of extremely different cultures has shaped the image of Hong Kong today.
This Hong Kong tour starts from Sheung Wan, specifically at Possession Point, where the British first took Hong Kong. As you stand on this site that was once part of the shoreline, see the extreme urbanisation of Hong Kong. Moving on, this walking tour explores Sun Yat-Sen historical trail to see where the founding father of republican China established the Revive China Society, and plotted the revolution against the monarchy.
You then head to the Victoria City (as Hong Kong was then called) and the old administration centre, including the Central police station, the Magistracy and the Victorian Prison Compound. Take your chance to see the Fringe Club, housed in the colonial Dairy Farm Building, and famous for its alternative performances and displays by up-and-coming artists.
Further along the the tour, you'll pass The Duddell Street Steps, heading over to some of the central landmarks. Among them are the Legislative Council building, the Cenotaph, Statue Square, and the Court of Final Appeal Building. Stop to admire the Anglican Church St. John’s Cathedral and catch a glimpse of the beautiful Flagstaff House, located nearby Hong Kong Park!
To make most of your Hong Kong tour you will be guided to the new Government Headquarters Complex, where the ministers, legislators, and civil servants overlook the city’s famed Victoria Harbour. We also see the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, the pace where the 1997 Hong Kong sovereignty handover ceremony took place.
