    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in central Hong Kong and kick off a day of exploring the best of this city’s old and new landmarks. Visit eclectic markets and fishing communities, as well as commercial centers and modern urban neighborhoods.

    Follow your guide into the Western Market and get an up close look at Hong Kong’s oldest market. Comb through stalls filled with colorful fabric, pastry shops and talk to locals selling a wide array of souvenirs. Wander down Wing Lok Street and Bonham Strand West and learn more about the ginseng residents love for its medicinal value.

    From there, make your way to Ko Shing Street—also known as Herbal Medicine Street—where you’ll gain an even deeper understanding of the traditional medicine used by thousands of locals. Once you’ve gained some insight from your expert guide, head to Hollywood Road (Antique Street) for a chance to explore shops filled with all kinds of rare collectibles. Items range from jade to silk, furniture to religious relics.

    After you’ve traveled back in time in the stalls of this unique market, head to Tai Ping Shan Street, where old and new meet. Check out the modern boutiques and cafes that line the streets of one of the area’s oldest neighborhoods. Check out the Central Escalators—the world’s longest outdoor escalator, measuring some 2,600 feet (800 meters). Travel to the top of the Central Business District and see towering skyscrapers and giant buildings like the Bank of China Tower. Learn from your guide how ancient traditions like feng shui influenced modern architecture and development.

    Note: Travel start from January 1st, 2016, you will visit another highlight of your Hong Kong tour, this will no doubt be a visit to the newly opened PMQ; the former Police Married Quarters has been transformed into the designer hub of the city. Young brands and independent designers showcase and sell their products in the old dormitory units in the heart of the city, while paying a subsidised rate. PMQ is the last word on cool in Hong Kong town. We dare you to see if something doesn’t catch your eye here!
