Discover Hong Kong's beautiful countryside on this private car tour
Travelling to the New Territories (my home), we will drive to some of the places most visitors do not get to see in Hong Kong. This can include:
The Sai Kung Peninsular - taking a short walk to High Island Reservoir, we will pass stunning scenery, abandoned villages and unique volcanic rock formations.
10, 000 Buddha's Monastery - this religious monument is not officially recognised by the tourist board, and can often be missed when trying to find it! There are in fact 16, 000 Buddhas on this steep hillside, it is well worth the trek to see them all.
Tsang Tai Uk - one of the remaining Chinese walled villages which is still inhabited by members of the Tsang family.
Monkey Mountain - see native Macaque monkeys. . . but never feed them!
Travel to the top of Jat's incline offers a panoramic view of the Hong Kong Island, the Victoria Harbour, Lei Yue Mun and the former Hong Kong International Airport, as well as part of the Kowloon Peninsula.
Kadoorie Farm - a hidden nature oasis away from the city
Sample Itinerary (we can manipulate the tour to suit your needs):
The itinerary is completely flexible, but designed to reach the areas by car that are not so easily accessible by public transport. These include:
- Sai Kung for the National Park or the seafood promenade.
- Tai Po for the local meat, fish and goods markets and Kadoorie Farm.
- Abandoned villages and fortified walled communities in Sha Tin.
- The 10, 000 Buddhas Monastery in Shatin.
- Monkey mountain - see the native (and very tame) Macaques monkeys. They must not be fed however.
- Jat's Incline, an amazing view back to Hong Kong from East Kowloon, showing Victoria Harbour, the old Kai Tak Airport and Kowloon.

Amy's confidence and capability drives her focused presentation of Hong Kong, its politics, its history, and its culture. We were able to experience the scenic mountains and bay, the neighborhoods, the beach, two temples, a shopping center, a botanical garden, and a ride on a sampan—all in a leisurely fashion. She covers background and details with an expertise that is singular. Best of all, she sends text and photos of the day! She's at the top of our list of more than twenty guides.
