Hong Kong Urban Adventures

Day tours, with a local


Hong Kong, a British colony turned Chinese ‘special administrative region’, can be described as a city with many faces. It started out as a cluster of fishing villages but with time Hong Kong has become a thriving metropolis. A primarily Chinese society governed by the British for over a century, it has carved out a Hong Kong culture that provides the city with an identity; materialistic but also very spiritual. Those who like to frequent the most luxurious shopping malls also shop at the markets. Traders who look at computer screens all day also enjoy the mountains and the seas outside. Hong Kong is a city of contrasts that provides endless opportunities for exploration. Join our Hong Kong tours and we will give you all the insider knowledge and local tips to start you on your Hong Kong urban adventures!
