1 Cultural and Heritage Tour

  • 1.1 Victoria City (Central) Historical Walk
    When the British first came, they settled in the Central District area and named it 'Victoria City'. This walking tour will take you explore the colonial heritage, and the early East Meets West tradition in Hong Kong. The tour will start with Man Mo Temple, a declared monument in Hong Kong which functioned as the 'Court of Justice' for the Chinese. Walk along the Hollywood Road, the second road built by the British in Hong Kong, where you'll see a clusters of antique shops, merchants who were attracted to the outskirt of the Victoria City for business with the Europeans, until we'll see the old Supreme Court and the Victoria Prison, the outskirt of what is called 'Government Hill' during the early colonial times. Explore landmarks of the Victoria City: Legislative Council, Statue Square, Court of Final Appeal, St John's Cathedral and the Flagstaff House. The final stop is the Pacific Place Shopping Mall, where you can take the bus back to the HKCEC.

    Cost: USD35.00/person
    Duration: Half Day (around 4 hours)

  • 1.2 Six Days War of 1899 and Heritage of the New Territories
    Find out the 'Six Days War of 1899' in the New Territories, the combat between the local villagers and the British colonialists. Make a first stop at the Man Mo Temple in Tai Po, when the British faced the first sign of conflict with the local villagers. Continue the tour to Lam Tsuen, where there are shrines worshipping local heroes who died in the war and those who lost their lives in the inter-village wars at Lam Tsuen Plain. The final stop is the Tang Clan village in Ping Shan, who was one of the most powerful village clans who settled in Hong Kong since the early 12th century, and one of the fiercest opposition leading the Six Days War which the British faced in 1899. Although the British had much superior weapons, they were astonished by the display of clever tactics of the local villagers. The Governor Sir Henry Blake eventually had to make peace with the local villagers by a personal visit, as affirmation of the Tang's clan social elite status in the New Territories. We'll also explore the village, where they have their own ancestral hall, temple, study hall for a better idea about the heritage and tradition of the local villager culture.

4 The Great Outdoor: Explore Cheung Chau with Dr M Williams, BBC Reporter and writer

There is no vehicle on the island except the police car and ambulances, and the only way to explore the island is on foot. The island retains ambience of a South China fishing village. You'll be greeted by Dr Williams, a BBC reporter and writer based in Hong Kong and he will personally take you to visit local temples the Pak Tei (North King) Temple and the Tin Hou (Goddess of the Sea) Temple, stroll along the streets and the markets where there are small handicraft shops and stores selling 'home-made' dried seafood, explore the caves which are believed to be occupied by legendary sea pirates, and take a leisure walk to the coastlines to see the rocks, tiny inlet and beaches, before a seafood lunch in a local restaurant.
