Overview

An excellent orientation tour - the City changes so rapidly that it will refresh `old memories' and delight ‘first timers'. The tour begins from the famous fishing village of Aberdeen to see the `floating community' - still very much a part of Hong Kong's society. Here an opportunity to join a “Sampan” is available, allowing a “close up” view of waterborne life. Afterwards, a short visit to a prestigious jewellery factory, where meticulous craftsmen fashion works of art from gold and gems. Visit Stanley Market where you can pick up bargains at just a fraction of the price in town. Proceed next to a ride up to the Victoria Peak for a panoramic view of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the surrounding islands. Then pass by picturesque Repulse Bay before return to your hotel / pick up point in the early afternoon.
