This tour takes you on a journey through the rich history and culture of Kowloon, with visits to the area's diverse collection of landmarks and lively markets. See the exquisite Nan Lian Garden and Chi Lin Nunnery, the Yuen Po Bird Garden, and Nathan Road as your guide shows you around.
At Nan Lian Garden, you can see an oasis in the urban scenery built in the style of China's Tang Dynasty, which ruled the country more than 1,500 years ago. Nearby, you can see the monastic complex of the Chi Lin Nunnery, also modeled on the traditional heavy timber structures that evoke one of the most brilliant periods in Chinese cultural history.
Make your way to the Yuen Po Street Bird Garden, a favorite gathering place where Hong Kong's songbird owners bring their pets in intricately carved cages. At Flowers Street, you can see a jungle of exotic blossoms, luck-bringing houseplants, and sweet scents to be found in more than 50 shops.
After a look at the shops and restaurants along Nathan Road, the main thoroughfare known in the post-World War II years as the Golden Mile, finish your tour with a new sense of how Kowloon's history lives on in the modern metropolis.
