Alexandra U.

Hong Kong, Hong Kong SAr, China

Hi there, my name is Alex and I am a quirky, enthusiastic and curious expat transplanted from Berlin, Germany.

I first came to Hong Kong as a flight attendant in 2009 on a job assignment and I still vividly remember my first time in Hong Kong: A ride on the famous star ferry across the harbor at sunset, the colorful neon lights along Nathan Road, a tasty dish of Chinese noodles at a street food stall along Temple Street Night Market and a delicious cocktail on a rooftop bar. It only took this one night and Hong Kong had captured my heart.

Now, I have seen the good and the bad sides of Hong Kong but one thing remains unchanged, this city has kept me fascinated. I have spent the last 3 years running private tours for my flight attendant colleagues, everyone always had a wonderful time, and I thought why not become the perfect storyteller to everyone who visits Hong Kong? Allow me to share with you my insights, knowledge and most importantly my fascination for this city during one of my walking tours. Be my guest and allow me to fill you with great sense of wonder and amazement for this city.

If you have have looked through the tours I provide and my credentials, you will notice I specialize in Street Art Tours, I would like to consider myself as HK's street art hunter extraordinaire. :)
I was transplanted from street art heavy Berlin to buzzing Hong Kong in the name of love about 8 years ago. Ever since, I have been following and snapping pictures of the HK street art scene. I have attended all the HKWalls festivals since the festival's inception in 2014, visited most of HK's street art exhibitions and gone out street art hunting in most of my free time (by myself as well as other street art enthusiasts). You'll be in capable hands when you'll come and join me for a street art tour.
