What you'll do
Understand what happens in the shadows of Hong Kong streets with me. I will tell the stories and share the history of how Hong Kong started, and continues to have a thriving underbelly of activity. Starting in Yau Ma Tei district, you will learn the hidden history of the area from the turn of the last century. Nothing helps you learn more about a city then it's past criminal activity and deplorable sanity conditions! ... opium dens, prostitution and bubonic plague were rife. Learn about gambling at the Hong Kong Jockey club, one of the highest revenue making institutions in the world (28 billion USD in 2018) despite being a not-for-profit institution. Plus why there are so many Mah-jong palours and Pawn brokers in the city. Jump on the MTR to Wan Chai and Lockhart Road, where you will sit for a drink in a local bar and talk to the local business owners. This is the home of the famous movie "World of Suzie Wong", and modern day red-light district, which is completely legal in Hong Kong.
Hosted by me Jami from Hong Kong Greeters Tours. From 2003-2006, I was a licensed NYC tour guide giving tours in Chinatown. Now I’m a licensed Hong Kong tour guide giving tours in a bigger Chinatown! I specialise in Hong Kong history and for the FIRST time ever... A Sin City night tour. How did the Japanese easily capture HK in 18 days during WW2? What are the four legal ways to gamble in Hong Kong now? Why did STD’s run rampant in the 1850’s and “bio-politics” formed? Why did prostitution become legal, illegal and legal again? My tours are FUN, full of facts and FUNNY! That’s because my other job is as a professional comedian. Perfect for visitors and locals!
Two drinks, one in the Yau Ma Tei area and one at a local Wan Chai bar

This is a late night tour, with an adult perspective on what activity goes on in the city at night. Whilst I provide a fascinating insight into these activities (past and present) my aim is not to glamorise or exploit anything or anyone in any way. Subject matter suitable for 16 yrs and above.
