Explore temples, markets and busy streets like a real local!
Welcome to Hong Kong!
Contrasts, neon signs, temples, offerings, nature, religion, local markets, traditions and street performers are a few words to summarise what will surprise us on this walking tour of Kowloon.
We will use public transport to get around town, as I consider it the best way to experience real local life. Transport in Hong Kong is an attraction in itself!
