ITINERARY

DAY 1

Kowloon Treasure Walk

DAY 1 - Kowloon Treasure Walk

Swap Hong Kong’s main island for bustling Kowloon and explore the local treasures of the peninsula on this half-day walking tour. Known as ‘nine dragons’, Kowloon on the mainland has more to offer than iconic views of the skyline from its waterfront.

Meet at the MTR Diamond Hill Station and wander into Wong Tai Sin, Hong Kong’s only landlocked district. Named after the god Wong Tai Sin, the district boasts a colourful mix of temples, including the popular namesake temple, and other buildings. In fact, its 22 public housing estates are home to 85% of the district’s population and have contributed a large part to Hong Kong’s social history.

Find some peace and quiet at the next stop – the Chi Lin Nunnery. First established in 1934, the impressive Tang-style Buddhist temple complex comprises several halls, a pagoda, a school and a bell tower, and houses some treasured Buddhist relics. Admire the elegant wooden structure, built completely without nails, learn about Chinese culture and soak up the calming atmosphere before returning to the hectic city life.

Next, delve deeper into Hong Kong’s housing history at the Choi Hung Estate. Constructed in the 1960s, it was the largest public housing development at the time, with more than 43,000 residents. Thanks to its rainbow-coloured façade and adjacent basketball court, Hong Kong’s oldest public housing estate has received renewed attention with countless photos making the rounds on Instagram and beyond. Learn more about the life on this side of the city and end the tour with a quick snapshot of the iconic estate.
