What you'll do
Traditional temples? Local foods? Unusual views onto the city? Wan Chai has it all! Come and explore the unknown sides of Wan Chai with us. Wan Chai is one of Hong Kong’s oldest, smallest and yet one of the city’s most exciting and charming districts. From its humble beginnings and its literal meaning of “Little Bay”, Wan Chai has grown to one of the busiest parts of town. Here, Eastern tradition meets Western culture, historical buildings are contrasted by modern skyscrapers and local Cha Chaan Tengs sit side-by-side with Michelin Star restaurants. Plus, Wan Chai is brimming with intriguing urban myths and ghost stories! Sounds exciting? It certainly is! So come and join me for a Wan Chai walking experience and allow me to share my insights of this cool, exciting neighborhood with you. Highlights for this experience: - Hear the trembling sound of the Noon-day gun and learn the history behind it - Get an insight into HK's beginnings and how it became a British colony - Roam through the streets of Wan Chai with its fascinating mix of historic and modern architecture - Enjoy some local snacks and drink - Have the opportunity to see a side of Wan Chai from a new perspective
I have worked as a flight attendant and traveled to all ends of the globe, I enjoy doing my research and seeing every new city with a fresh pair of eyes. I also worked as a teacher, so I'm very familiar with putting an exciting and engaging experience together :) I have been exploring Wan Chai's ins-and-outs over the last 10 years, taken my ex-coworkers (flight attendants) among others on this amazing experience for the last 3 years and have received wonderful reviews for it, I have since stopped teaching and flying, now I focus on sharing my knowledge of this wonderful city with everyone.
