An interesting look at a side of HK history I was not aware of. The guide was very passionate about the topic.

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2015

We met Martin at the meeting point and travelled by public transport to the start location. Martin, our guide was very informative and enthusiastic about the WW2 Battlefield. if you are a WW2 buff then this is the perfect tour for you. if you are not then perhaps there is a bit too much information. The walk was very pleasant and easy to walk, the scenery was great, we were lucky and had perfect weather to do this.
