Relaxation and chilling out in Hong Kong

Hong Kong Sightseeing – The Hong Kong Contrast

Thinking of Hong Kong, the first thing that comes to mind might be the hustle and bustle of the city. You might think of tall buildings, or you might still think about the fabulous Dim Sum Breakfast you had on your last Hello Hong Kong Food Tour! Did you know that in mid-2014 the land population stood at 6 690 persons per square kilometre? That makes Hong Kong one of the most densely populated places in the world!  With over 7 million people in a city it is hard to find tranquility and take a break from everyday life. On your next Hong Kong Private Tour, let us take you to Long Ke Wan Beach in Sai Kung and see the contrast to Hong Kong City for yourself! Ask your Hello Hong Kong Guide to take you up the mountain or to the beach and take a break from the city life!

Modern choice of mooncake set

Hong Kong Foodie Tours – The elaborate Mooncake

When you see mooncakes appearing in every stop of your Sightseeing Tour in Hong Kong, you will know it is that time of the year again! The Mid-Autumn Festival! This long-held celebration was traditionally a thanksgiving for the harvest. The moon plays a main role and is symbolised by the mooncake. This round shaped delicacy represents completeness and unity, and is meant to be shared to bring family and friends together. Whether you are on a Private Food Tour, Private Customised Tour, or a Private Night Tour with us, just simply ask your Hello Hong Kong Guide to include a mooncake in your Personal Tour Hong Kong.

The Confucian culture and display of shrines.

Sightseeing in Hong Kong – The close ties to death

The Confucian culture emphasises respect for one’s parents, elders and ancestors. With this in mind, the sight of ancestral shrines on our walking tours in Hong Kong, are not rare. These shrines are dedicated to deified ancestors and progenitors of surname lineages or families in the Chinese traditional religion. Depending on the ethnic background these temple settings may vary. Your well informed Hello Hong Kong tour guide will be able to tell you more about it on your Hong Kong sightseeing!

The best way to invite for tea!

Hong Kong Food Tour – The Yum Cha

When you are on our food tour in Hong Kong you will get to experience “Yum Cha”. This is a Chinese style brunch that involes drinking tea (Yum Cha! literally: Drink Tea!) and eating Dim Sum. Traditionally, Yum Cha is practised in the mornings or early afternoons. The custom is to pour tea for others first before one’s own cup. Good manners are to be the first to pour tea! So, if you want to impress your Hello Hong Kong Food Tour group and your guide, be the first to pour the tea for everyone! 🙂

Spotted on hong kong local tour at Sham Shui Po

Hong Kong private tour – The sights of Sham Shui Po

Sham Shui Po is a favourite on our Hong Kong private tours. It is one of the least developed most authentic areas of the city. This picture of the pig delivery man on the streets of Sham Shui Po was captured by Instagrammer each.el_tan and came in in 13th place if the #myhkmoment photo competition. Ask us if you want to include Sham Shui Po in your next Hong Kong City Tour!

Spirit tablets

These are just some of the spirit tablets in the ancestral hall at Pak Sing temple. The communal hall houses the spirit tablets of many common people who died in Hong Kong but who had no family to come and pay respects to them. Common rituals are offered for all of the spirits housed within it to make sure none of the spirits start to wander and cause mischief.
