  • Overview & Itinerary


    Go back in time and witness Hong Kong’s rich heritage as you take this guided tour of the New Territories region of Hong Kong. Away from the glitz and glamour of the city, visit the places that offer fascinating insight into Hong Kong’s unique past and reveal how the locals lived.

    Admire intricate wood carvings and plaster mouldings at Tai Fu Tai and learn about the lifestyle of 16th century village during your visit to the walled village of Lo Wai. Make a wish as the locals do under the Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree and pray to the deities of literature and martial arts at the Man Mo Temple.


    Kickstart your Hong Kong Heritage tour around 8:45am from The Kowloon Hotel in an air-conditioned coach. Accompanied by a guide, you will visit the following Hong Kong attractions:

    Tai Fu Tai & Fan Tin Village: Visit the luxurious residence built in 1865 by Man Chune-luen, a scholar of the Man Clan. The Tai Fu Tai is a perfect example of homes typical of high-ranking officials during the 19th century. Take a short walk around the Fan Tin Village and see the houses reflecting old-world architecture, which keep the history and heritage of the region alive.

    Lo Wai Walled Village & Tang Chung Ling Ancestral Hall: The walled village of Lo Wai gives an interesting insight into village life in the early 16th century under the Tang clan. Nearby is the Tang's Ancestral Hall, built in the 16th century for clan rituals and the worship of ancestors.

    Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree: Join the locals as they visit the holy banyan tree. Often locals will light joss sticks and incense papers, hoping that their wish will come true.

    Man Mo Temple & Tai Po Market: Visit the Man Mo temple dedicated to the deities of literature and martial arts. It is here that ambitious students came to worship, looking to succeed in the civil examinations of Imperial China. Enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the temple and take in the spectacular roof, which is adorned by giant hanging incense coils. Nearby is the traditional Chinese bazaar, Tai Po Market, founded in 1892, which sells a wide variety of fresh produce, seafood and household goods.

    At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back to The Kowloon Hotel.
