Afternoon Walking Tour on Dark Side of Hong Kong
From US$16.34
Get a local’s perspective of Hong Kong on this Kowloon walking tour of the less affluent areas of the city. You’ll visit places that most tourists don't got to, and hear candid insights about what real life is like for a local. Learn about city's housing crisis and visit multiple markets, including Mong Kok, Prince Edward, and Sham Shui Po, in one day.
What to Expect
After meeting your guide, you'll head to Mong Kok and Prince Edward. Visit The Goldfish Market, The Flower Market, and The Birds Market, learning about the background of these places, and the challenges they face.
The next part of the tour gives insight into the housing crisis of Hong Kong. You’ll see Boundary Street Sport Centre, Portland Street, and Tenement House—learning about the struggles and challenges encountered by locals.
Stop off at Lui Seng Chun for Chinese herbal tea before heading to Tung Chau Street to learn about the reality of the poverty line in Hong Kong. After this, you’ll visit Pei Ho Street, where you’ll find out about subdivided housing, cage housing, and how many homeless people live.
The tour ends at Sham Shui Po market—you can either stay here, or your guide will point out the nearest MTR station.
