Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

As ‘Asia’s World City’, Hong Kong is a fascinating destination with many sides to its complex personality. If you’re new to Hong Kong - perhaps relocating as an expat or studying at university - then a good way to start discovering your new home is by way of guided tours. So settle in to your apartment or off-campus student housing… and then begin exploring!

As good a place as any to start researching the tours on offer is the Hong Kong Tourism Board website. The Explore Hong Kong Tours page serves up a selection of tours catering to different interests and here’s a look at some of them.

The three hour Good Evening Kowloon evening walk, available on Tuesday and Saturday, provides an introduction to the lively areas of Yau Ma Tei and Jordan. The tour takes in some local entertainment and delicacies and offers a glimpse into Chinese culture and Hong Kong society.

Available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the six hour Different Taste of Hong Kong tour utilizes different public transport to - as its name suggests - offer a sneak peek inside some of the city’s more down-to-earth attractions. Take this excursion and you’ll get to experience Hong Kong through the eyes of the locals, beginning with a trip on the iconic Star Ferry and then a meander on foot through the bazaar-filled streets of Central, followed by a ride on the world’s largest outdoor covered escalator, the historic ‘Ding Ding’ tram and finally back to the water on a Walla-walla.

A scintillating culinary adventure is on the books with the four hour Sham Shui Po Foodie Tour, which visits various locations in this Kowloon neighbourhood. This morning trip can be taken on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday and will see you pop in to a cha chan teng or Hong Kong-style café for breakfast, a traditional pudding shop, speciality soy store, Chiu Chow-style restaurant, bakery and handmade noodle shop.

Lantau Island, the largest of Hong Kong’s islands, is the focus of the five and a half hour 360 Lantau Sunset Tour that operates daily. This begins with a journey on the Ngong Ping Cable Car and stunning views of Ngong Ping Village and the Big Buddha. There’s a visit to historic Tai O fishing village and the picturesque setting of the Tai O Heritage Hotel for a lovely sunset dinner, followed by stargazing on Cheung Sha Beach.

The five hour New Territories Cultural Tour, available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, explores the New Territories area with its mountainous landscapes and picturesque greenery and provides a glimpse of rural Hong Kong. The itinerary includes Kat Hing Wai Walled Village, Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree, Hong Kong Railway Museum and Che Kung Temple.

If you’re a student studying in Hong Kong, then chances are you may be staying at Campus Hong Kong which is located in Tsuen Wan in the New Territories. The New Territories Cultural Tour will give you an introduction to your new neighbourhood.

Opened in 2015, Campus Hong Kong is a stylish addition to the Hong Kong student housing scene and enjoys a scenic setting on the South China Sea shoreline. Accommodation is available in a choice of two categories - these being Bed, in a shared dormitory, and Room, a private room for four students with four individual beds.

Facilities available to guests are a restaurant, fitness centre, sauna, 25 metre open-air swimming pool and Jacuzzi (in summer time) and “The Link” gathering place for socializing and chilling out.

Having a few guided tours under their belt, Campus Hong Kong guests ready to continue exploring Hong Kong on their own will find their student apartments in Tsuen Wan handily located to the MTR (Mass Transit Railway). This provides an affordable and reliable way to travel around the destination, with an extensive network that links the main city areas and surrounding districts.
