Venture into the rustic New Territories, situated between urban Kowloon and mainland China, for a glimpse of Hong Kong's rural side. Wander through Lok Ma Chou, a frontier buffer zone, visit the walled village of Tsang Tai Uk, explore a traditional market, and see the largest temple in Hong Kong.
Meet your guide at your hotel for a convenient drive to the edge of Hong Kong, riding through the New Territories' mountainous landscapes and lush greenery. See the border zone of Lok Ma Chou. This area is monitored closely by Hong Kong government to prevent the passage of illegal immigrants from mainland China.
Next, stop by the historic village of Tsang Tai Uk, also known as the “Walled Village at the Mountain’s Foot”. Marvel at the well-preserved buildings with their original granite, bricks, and timber still intact. Interact with the locals and learn about their customs, heritage, and daily lives in the village.
Afterward, stroll through the traditional Tai Po Market. Browse handmade crafts and local food, and don’t miss the opportunity to grab yourself a bargain among the many stalls.
Your last stop is at the ancient Wong Tai Sin Temple, the largest Taoist temple in Hong Kong. At the heart of Kowloon, admire the intricate architectural designs on The Nine Dragon Wall, the majestic main altar, and the picturesque Good Wish Garden within the temple. Make a wish and receive a fortune using the spiritual practice of kau cim before returning to your hotel.
