Get a feel for Hong Kong’s urban area, Kowloon, with this 3-hour walking tour of Yau Ma Tei and Jordan. Spend your night exploring the streets, a 100-year-old market, and a traditional karaoke spot. Pass by the classic Yau Ma Tei Theatre, and stop for a dinner of local favorites. End our night with fortune telling and more food.
Meet your group and guide at the Yau Ma Tei MTR Station a little before 7:30pm, which is the time your tour will depart at.
Follow your guide through the urban streets of Kowloon as you pass by key sights, such as the heritage red-brick building on Shanghai Street and the classic Yau Ma TeiTheatre. See the 100-year-old Yau Ma Tei Fruit Wholesale Market, which still is going strong today. Your guide keeps things interesting by telling tales of history and folklore as you go.
Next up is dinner. Enjoy a delicious meal of local-favorite foods at Mido Café or possibly at another side-street restaurant in the area before you head off to visit a traditional karaoke spot.
Make your way down Temple Street for an authentic experience at a local singing parlor. Under flashing colored lights, listen to a few singers belt out their most-loved tunes. Afterward, continue down Temple Street as you pass the Tin Hau Temple Complex. Have the chance to get your fortune told to you here under a banyan tree.
Your tour ends at Wo Kee, a local desert shop on the street where you can sample some dessert or purchase one (own expense). Either way, you can decide to explore the area on your own or head back to where you’re staying for the night.
We had an informative guide who told us little known tidbits and interesting stories about the storied past and present of the Yau Ma Tei and Jordon areas of Kowloon. The night included a visit to the Temple Street market, a delicious dinner, and a fun visit to an old-school karaoke bar. Highly recommended if you want to get away from the touristy areas of the island and come to Kowloon for a more authentic experience!
This was a unique experience and very enjoyable. We benefited by being the only two on the tour. The guide explained in detail everything we saw, she was very informative and let us complete the tour at our own pace. I am sure that without her we would not have gone into the bars that we did and were therefore able to see the real Kowloon enjoyed by the Hong Kong people themselves.
This tour was disappointing. Dinner wasn't anything to
get excited about. The history and walk was good.
