A Day in the Life of a Hong Kong Local

Millions of visitors come to Hong Kong each year, usually bringing with them some preconceived ideas of the place. They imagine junk boats, Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, street markets, silk, pearls, knock-offs, san pans, tai pans, the floating restaurant, and a really big buddha. It’s so much more than that! Join This is Asia Tours and go beneath the surface of Hong Kong. We’ll show you what Hong Kong is really like- from a local’s perspective.

As lifelong locals of Hong Kong with several years’ experience as tour guides, we at This is Asia Tours are the perfect ones to show you day-to-day life in Hong Kong. We’ll really delve into the culture, customs, and evolution of the city: Rather than ticking sites off a list, we’ll take you on a journey of Hong Kong hopping–exploring Hong Kong on foot and through the many forms of public transport available in the city. Instead of learning about a few typical dishes, we’ll talk about the Hong Kong culinary and cafe culture as a whole. Rather than just seeing the harbor, we’ll learn about Hong Kong’s origins as a British fishing village and how it has transformed into the world financial hub it is today.

We’ll visit diverse parts of the city and get far off the tourist track (while not missing some key attractions) so that you can see and experience where the locals live, shop, eat, and hang out.
