You will be picked up from your hotel in Hong Kong (if it is within the selected list of hotels), otherwise you have to assemble at the pick-up point by 0830h (8:30am) for a tour of Kowloon and New Territories. You will travel in an air-conditioned coach, accompanied by an English-speaking guide.
The tour commences from Kowloon Peninsula and makes several interesting stops on the way to and from the border with China. Some of these include:
• Wongtaisin Temple: This is the largest Taoist temple in Hong Kong and is visited annually by more than 3 million worshippers. No other temple presents visitors with such insight into Chinese religious beliefs and practices.
• Old-style rural market: Visit this typical rural market that sells fresh produce, daily necessities and even electronic equipment.
• Lok Ma Chau: This is a good vantage point to catch a glimpse of the remarkable skyline of China’s Shenzhen special economic zone.
• Tsang Tai Uk: Located near the approach road to the Lion Rock Tunnel, this is an outstanding example of a fortified village. The name means “Tsang’s Big House”. Built in the 1840s, it is a large, rectangular grey-brick compound with high, thick walls and tall corner towers. Originally designed as the home for a rich quarry-master’s clan, the walled village gained its current name when it gave refuge to displaced families after the Second World War.
The tour ends at the starting point.
