EAST AND WEST, OLD AND NEW
Discover Hong Kong, a vibrant city of contrasts where East meets West. Private guides will help clients explore this former British Territory and unveil the many sides of its complex character. Traditional sights of Hong Kong Island include a view over the city from Victoria Peak and a sampan ride across Aberdeen Harbor, but there is so much more to see and do here.
The spiritual side of Hong Kong comes to life with a visit to the Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island which is home to the Giant Buddha, or an exploration of Wong Tai Sin Temple in Kowloon where families often refer to their deity to help make crucial decisions.
The natural beauty of the New Territories, where rolling green hills and woodland dominate the landscape, offers visitors the opportuntity to savor the panorama from Hong Kong’s highest peak, relax in an authentic tea house and stroll along picturesque hiking trails. Learn about Confucian, Taoist and Buddhist beliefs at the Yuen Yuen Institute and visit a walled village, the ancestral home of a family clan. Further afield, a hydrofoil ride across the Pearl River will take clients to Macau, the former Portuguese colony with a rich history that has today become the Las Vegas of the Orient.
Shopping is everywhere with glitzy malls and bustling markets like Stanley Market, the specialist Jade Market and the lively Temple Street Night Market.
