Description

Hong Kong is a rapidly changing city with a fascinating and evolving political and cultural presence. The bustling district of Kowloon is the ideal spot in Hong Kong to get a real feel for contemporary life in the city. This 3-hour tour of Hong Kong's Kowloon district, led by a historian or journalist explores how Hong Kong has changed since its transition from the British back to China in 1997 and the social implications on life today.

You will begin this tour with a trip on the Star Ferry, cruising through the harbor and past the sea of high rise skyscrapers. Then, continue a walking tour through Kowloon, all the while learning about the transfer of sovereignty and the surprising economic and demographic background of the area. You will then shift the focus to the social side of the region, and the multiculturalism of Kowloon. You may stop to discuss the Mosque or the Fuk Tak Temple or to a street vendor for a little snack before we explore some of the area's night markets. Your tour will be wrapped up with a chat about the youth of Hong Kong, and what the future holds for the new generation.
