Hong Kong Island Morning Sightseeing Tour:
After hotel pickup (select hotels only), your guide will take you aboard a funicular tram to Victoria Peak to start your morning tour of Hong Kong Island with amazing views from the top. Look out past Kowloon and the surrounding islands before you descend, and then head past picturesque Repulse Bay on your way to Aberdeen. Learn about this floating community where fishermen still reside aboard junks, and take an optional trip aboard a sampan (flat-bottomed wooden boat) around the fascinating harbor (at an additional cost).
Next, your guide will take you to Stanley Market, a must-see destination in Hong Kong. Browse the little shops for fantastic deals on everything from Chinese costume jewelry and souvenirs to silk clothing and sportswear. When you’ve had your fill of bargain hunting, head to your final destination – a famous jewelry factory where professional craftsmen make gorgeous works of art, constructed of gold and beautiful gems.
Sheung Wan District Afternoon Walking Tour:
See where Hong Kong’s past and future meet in Sheung Wan, a modern urban district at the center of Hong Kong that still maintains many of its old traditions. First, enjoy a ride on a 1904 tram -- the city's oldest form of land transportation. Then, embark on your guided walking tour along Bonham Road, where you’ll find an assortment of street vendors selling dried seafood.
Roam around Cat Street for a bit of window shopping or browse for bargains in one of the many antique shops and galleries. Head to Hollywood Road where several blocks of stores overflow with Chinese porcelain ware and furniture, historical memorabilia and funeral items. Step foot in Man Mo Temple and admire the scattered images of Chinese deities as well as the massive incense spirals hanging from the temple ceilings.
Get your camera ready for Central Escalator, the world’s longest covered escalator, before a stop at one of Hong Kong’s oldest fresh markets to taste tender Southeast Asian fruits, such as durians and rambutans (own expense). Complete your walking tour at Cha Chaan Teng, a local café where you can savor traditional Chinese snacks like milk tea and egg custard.
