Full description
The future meets the past in Hong Kong and nowhere can you see this more clearly than in the Central district. We walk among historic buildings that are nestled amid stunning skyscrapers, where the ancient art of feng shui influences modern architecture, along streets whose very names evoke the colourful history of this amazing territory.

The heart of Hong Kong city, the Central district, has been developing since inception of British rule in 1841. Western-style buildings sprang up as the city grew prosperously and the early 20th century saw Hong Kong develop into a metropolis. Extensive reclamations extending the waterfront and development projects were carried out during different periods and although the outlook of the city is ever changing, many historical buildings and structures still survive as standing testimony to the history of the Central district.

Our guide was informative and interesting.

We enjoyed learning Hong Kong history and viewing historical sites. The guide presented interesting stories about the culture and traditions of Hong Kong. She was knowledgeable and answered our questions happily and without hesitation. After the tour we were able to educate a friend of ours who has been living and working in Hong Kong for three months. We would definitely recommend this tour to all visitors.

A wonderful walk in the middle of wonderful city with a great guide!

I join the walk on 5. August with Martin as my guide. It was only 3 of us, so we had a lot of fun. Martin really knows the interesting back story of each building, and seeing all beautiful colonial building in the mids of skyscrapers is a wonderful adventure. Highly recommended.
