Culture of Hong Kong
I know. We all like the feeling of independence, but when it comes to touring a destination do you really want to take on the task of figuring it out yourself? True, there is that moment when you tell your friends you did it all by yourself but it may have involved tons of research, and did you really want to lose that time? Sometimes it’s best to just hand over the reins to a professional and do a tour. You could be hoofing it around a bustling city in no time if you’d already been around the block with a licensed guide. And you’ll be surprised what you learn along the way.
Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated cities in the world. What could be better to help you navigate its unknown expanses than getting help from the locals? That’s exactly what’s compiled here – some tours of the city and its suburbs that allow visitors to get to know it a different way, from the food to Kung Fu.
When it comes to Kung Fu don’t you immediately think of Bruce Lee? After all, he practically made this martial art seem trendy on the big screen. He’s the focus of our first tour not only because of his success on screen but because he was a Kung Fu master. This tour is named after a technique that he learned and adapted and includes a Wing Chun lesson from Master San Lau, who was taught by Lee’s own mentor, Yip Man. Following the hour long class the tour takes you along the Hong Kong Avenue of Stars to see Bruce’s statute and then to a dim sum lunch. The tour ends at the Kung Fu*Art*Life exhibition at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum. The exhibit, put together in collaboration with the Bruce Lee Foundation, looks at Lee and his life not only as a movie star and martial artist, but as a significant cultural phenomenon. On a trip to Hong Kong this is one experience that a Kung Fu fan cannot pass up.
Who doesn’t enjoy an immersive experience when traveling? With that in mind, the Six Senses Heritage Experience organized by Tourasia is definitely measuring up. This guided hands-on experience lets all of your senses experience the culture of Hong Kong.
You’ll first get a feeling of calm after a morning of tai chi; then breathe in some fresh air on a bicycle ride; then gaze in awe at Hong Kong’s oldest pagoda, Tsui Shing Lau, on the Ping Shan Heritage Trail; then taste Poon Choi, the Traditional Cantonese Big-Bowl-feast, and lastly test your paranormal abilities through the ancient Chinese fortune telling practice, Kau Cim. There is no better way to get to know Hong Kong’s energy. Did we mention this tour is eco-friendly? Participants maneuver around Hong Kong riding bicycles and taking public transportation. And dining options and stopovers are chosen with the aim of supporting local shops and restaurants.
