Description

Set out for Kowloon Peak on a heritage walking tour that includes a Hong Kong–style breakfast at a tea restaurant and dim sum later in the day. The steep climb up a staircase along the hiking trail leads you to the summit of the Kowloon Peninsula, where you're rewarded with a panoramic view of the city.

Meet your guide at Tsim Sha Tsui MTR Station and start your small-group hiking tour by visiting traditional communities beneath Kowloon Peak. Start out at Choi Hung Estate, translated as 'rainbow' for its vibrant colors. As one of the first developed public estates in Hong Kong, it boasts a 50-year-old heritage and offers a window into local life. Its elderly residents, coupled with the mystical presence of old shops, will transport you back in time.

After a traditional breakfast at a local café, you're free to wander around before proceeding toward Kowloon Peak. The first part of the uphill climb consists mostly of stairs, but the vista of Hong Kong from the top of the Kowloon Peninsula will not disappoint. Admire views of Sai Kung pier and the aptly named Lion Mountain.

Make the steep journey down the mountain, which may require the use of all four limbs. From here, your guide accompanies you to Wong Tai Sin City, known for its namesake Taoist temple. Fill up with dim sum at a local restaurant before visiting the temple, home to legendary Master Wong Tai Sin, who is said to grant wishes upon request.

Your full-day tour concludes near the Wong Tai Sin MTR Station for easy transport.
