After making your own way to Yau Ma Tei MTR to meet your guide, head over to Temple Street Night Market to start your evening stroll around Hong Kong.
The Temple Street Night Market provides fertile ground for a favorite Hong Kong pastime: meandering through the street bazaar to watch fortune-tellers and street performers, see locals bargaining for items and browse a variety of vendors who sell everything from jade and antiques to electronics and clothing.
Next up, enjoy the tranquility of two nearby parks. First, walk through the leafy grounds of a park that is a gathering place for local Nepalese and South Asian communities. Then continue over to the largest park on the Kowloon peninsula where your guide takes you to a tucked-away lookout point where you can enjoy fantastic views of the skyline. Learn about the region’s history as your guide describes the small fishing villages that once dotted this coast.
Dive back into city life by walking past a dizzying array of multimillion-dollar stores that sell premium international fashion brands. Then stop at two legendary locales that are polar opposites: the luxurious Peninsula Hong Kong hotel, aka the ‘Grande Dame of the Far East,’ which is famous for its fine amenities and service; followed by Chungking Mansions, a sprawling complex known for low-cost accommodations and shops patronized by many of the city’s multinational residents.
Your 3-hour tour ends after your stop at Chungking Mansions. Your guide can help you with directions to your hotel or can recommend great bars with skyline views if you like.
