On your Hong Kong day tours, it will be impossible to get passed a street food stall without noticing the delicious smell of the waffles. You will be surprised though that these waffles look a bit different. Our so-called “egg waffles” or “gai dan jai” are an eggy leavened batter cooked between two plates of semi-spherical cells! These mouth-watering desserts come with all kinds of fillings and additions… How about chocolate filled green tea waffles? Or what about purple sweet potato?  What ever your gusto, make sure that your Hong Kong tours include a taste of an egg waffle.

Hong Kong At Night – The Streets Of Mongkok

There are many places to see on Hong Kong tours but one of the most vibrant and interesting areas and a “not to miss” on Hong Kong day tours or your Hong Kong night tour is Mongkok. With a population density of 130,000 people per sqkm, this district is described as the as the busiest in the world by the Guinness World Records.

Hong Kong Food Tour | Things You Find At The Dry Food Market

Hong Kong tours are not complete if you have not visited a traditional Chinese dry food shop. You will find most curious things from fish maw to dried bird’s nests to sea cucumbers. Most of these things are dried and need to be hydrated again. Then they get added into the soup or one can drink them. The sea cucumber is one of the Hong Kong food that get dried and hydrated again. As a Hong Kong foodie, you can, of course, skip trying this but when you are on Hong Kong day tours with us, we will also take you through the districts that sell the dried food.

Hong Kong Walking Tours | Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! 中秋快乐!

Hong Kong Walking Tours | Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! 中秋快乐!

If you are on a Hong Kong city tour this time of the year, you will see that everybody is very excited as it is time for our Mid-Autumn Festival. The festival celebrates three fundamental concepts that are closely connected:

  • Gathering, such as family and friends coming together, or harvesting crops for the festival. It’s said the moon is the brightest and roundest on this day which means family reunion. And this is the main reason why people think mid-autumn is important. If you go to a restaurant on your Hong Kong private tours, you will see they are busier than usual.
  • Thanksgiving, to give thanks for the harvest, or for harmonious unions.
  • Praying (asking for conceptual or material satisfaction), such as for babies, a spouse, beauty, longevity, or for a good future.

Traditions and myths surrounding the festival are formed around these concepts, although traditions have changed over time due to changes in technology, science, economy, culture, and religion. It’s about well being together.

Ask your private tour guide Hong Kong to show you the best place to look for the dragon dance on a tour Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Activities | Mid-Autumn Festival

Hong Kong Activities | Mid-Autumn Festival

A romantic Chinese poem says “May we live long and share the beauty of the moon together, even if we are hundreds of miles apart.” The Mid-Autumn or Moon festival was celebrated first in the Tang dynasty (618–907). It is the celebration of the harvest. When you are on a Hong Kong tour these days, you will not escape the decorations and preparations for the “Moon Festival”. An important part of the festival celebration is moon worship. The ancient Chinese believed in rejuvenation being associated with the moon and water. Another tradition is to eat mooncakes. If you are on a Hong Kong city tour during the Mid-Autumn Festival, it will be impossible to walk passed the mooncakes.

Hong Kong Food Tour | Char Siu Anytime!

Hong Kong Food Tour | Char Siu Anytime!

…Char what….? Char Siu or barbecued pork, to make it more simple, is a cooking method in the Cantonese kitchen and means literally “fork roasted”.

You can find this delicious speciality on Hong Kong culinary tours in “siu mei” restaurants. These places are specialised in meat dishes. On your private food tours Hong Kong, you will not only get some mouth-watering BBQ pork but also other meats like roasted goose or duck. Most shops display the meats by hanging them in the window. Usually, the food is served with a side of rice and vegetables.

Hong Kong Private Tours | The Beautiful Peninsula Hotel

Hong Kong Private Tours | The Beautiful Peninsula Hotel

The flagship of “The Peninsula Hotels” opened its door in 1928 and is a treasure of historical happenings. Definitely worth the visit on Hong Kong walking tours.

For example, in 1941, at the end of the Battle of Hong Kong, Sir Mark Aitchison Young, surrendered in person at the Japanese headquarters on the third floor of The Peninsula. The Governor was confined for two months in one of the hotel suites before being transferred to a prison in Shanghai. The rooms were then reserved for Japanese officers and high-ranking dignitaries, while Hong Kong sank into misery and destitution.

Your private tour guide Hong Kong will tell you this and many other stories on your Hong Kong city tour.
