ITINERARY

Kung Fu and Hong Kong Cuisine

DAY 1 - Kung Fu and Hong Kong Cuisine

Experience a slice of authentic Chinese life with a half-day tour that takes in martial arts, authentic cuisine and the Chinese art of embroidery.

The day will begin with a practical demonstration of Wing Chun, a style of close-combat Kung Fu developed by Shaolin Monks in the 18th Century. After trying out the martial art made famous by the legendary Bruce Lee, enjoy a visit to one of the oldest eateries in Hong Kong, Mido Café.

This charming café - built in the 1950s - has become something of an institution after featuring in various movies and TV shows and here, enjoy a light and delicious snack that is traditional to the region.

Once sated, pay a visit to the fascinating Yau Ma Tei Theatre, the only surviving pre-World War II theatre in the Kowloon District. With its Art Deco exterior, attractive pitched roof and gable walls you’ll get a taste of the history, architecture and atmosphere of this performance venue dedicated to Cantonese opera. Take a look at the fascinating and historic Red Brick Building before visiting a temple dedicated to Tin Hau, the Goddess of the Sea. Temples that honour her can be found in abundance in Chinese coastal communities and Hong Kong is no exception.

Pay a visit to the gloriously vibrant Yau Ma Tei Wholesale Fruit Market. This historic market was founded in 1913 and thrives and bustles as much today as it did in the pre-war era. Consisting of several blocks of one or two-storey brick and stone buildings, eagle-eyed visitors can still spot pre-WW2 signage.

Next, indulge in a little romance with a visit to the Chinese embroidery shop and witness the beautifully detailed red Qun Gua (the traditional, two-piece wedding dress) being made. The vibrant shade of red used for these traditional dresses is meant to symbolise good fortune, luck and prosperity – the perfect way to end a gratifying day.
