    Hong Kong is one of the world’s true metropolises and on this walking tour you’ll discover some of the buildings that define its skyline. Learn about their structure, discover some of the stories behind their construction, and see how Chinese principles of Feng Shui have influenced their design. 

    Sneak a peek at the many public art exhibitions and sculptures tucked beside the skyscrapers, which together define the cityscape of Hong Kong’s financial district. Ride the world’s largest outdoor escalator, a staggering 792-metre long, and made up of 23 individual escalators. Enjoy some gallery hopping and treasure hunting along Hollywood Road, the heart of Hong Kong's contemporary art and antiques trading region. 


    Next, head down Cat Street with its wealth of open-air curio markets selling inexpensive Chinese arts and crafts. This is a great place to soak up the atmosphere of the area and to poke through the fascinating alleyways and enjoy the city’s arty vibe. Call into Man Mo Temple, an elegant temple built in 1847 and declared a Grade 1 historical building in 1993. Watch as a constant stream of students arrives with their parents, seeking blessing for their academic studies and exams.


    Discover some of the city’s remaining colonial gems, including the Museum of Medical Sciences and the Chinese Young Men's Christian Association of Hong Kong on the way to the University of Hong Kong, the oldest university in the city. 


    Here, some of the few remaining examples of British colonial architecture in Hong Kong survive, many of them declared historical monuments. Admire how these colonial buildings were ingeniously adapted for the local climate with open balconies, endless arcades and cascading terraces.


    End the tour with a visit to the University Museum and Art Gallery, Hong Kong’s oldest museum, housing over a thousand pieces of Chinese art and antiquities. Stroll through the exhibits before heading back to the busy streets of the centre.
