Morning City Backstreets Adventure

Food & Drink

Unravel centuries of Hong Kong's history on a tour that takes you from the bustling harbor to its historic villages and a local family home. Enjoy trips on several forms of transportation as you explore the iconic landmarks and hidden boroughs of the popular contemporary city.

After you're picked up from your hotel, your tour takes you to the water for a journey on one of Hong Kong's icons, the Star Ferry. Hop on the historic form of transportation and cruise through the harbor, past the sights of Hong Kong's skyline. After you return to dock, board a double-decker tram—one of a handful of modern tram systems in the world—for a rapid ride through the city.

When you disembark from the vehicle, head to a studio practicing the traditional custom of Da Siu Yan. Watch experts undertake the voodoo-like practice known as "villain hitting," and get the chance to try it out for yourself.

Next, explore the nearby fishing village of Shau Kei Wan. Wander through the traditional enclave, walking to an open-air bazaar and through colorful stalls that display fresh and exotic fruits, herbs, and vegetables.

Follow your guide through Main Street East, a historical area where pirates once hid, on your way to the Ming Wah Dai Ha public housing estate. You can meet a local family that lives in the incredible 9-story structure and learn how to play mahjong, one of Hongkongers' most popular pastimes, before you return to your hotel.
