Hong Kong Urban Adventures
Day tours, with a local
Hong Kong, a British colony turned Chinese ‘special administrative region’, can be described as a Chinese New York resembling Naples. It’s a primarily Chinese society and a thriving metropolis, but many do not know that it has one of the most enviable natural environments on Earth. Because of its hilliness and the surrounding bodies of water on 3 out of 4 sides, development is difficult and slow in Hong Kong. Which leaves a variety of options for a Hong Kong tour around the natural environment.
Three-fourths of land in Hong Kong, believe it or not, is completely undeveloped. It's comprised of parks, nature reserves, marine parks and other rural areas such as mashes and woodlands. The other fourth of the land is a buzzing urban region of Hong Kong. Come explore on one of our Hong Kong tours!
Can you really know a place without knowing its story? Experience the history, beauty and urbanization of Hong Kong through the city streets. The buildings, open spaces and waterfront all have a story they are waiting to tell that lifts the lid on who Hong Kong is today. This tour tells that rollicking story of bandits who built a nation to an island built on opium trade and a rebirth under its giant neighbour.more...
