What you can expect

Embrace Hong Kong's local traditions and culture on this private tour. Do as the locals do and participate in a bird future telling ritual. Stroll one of the most vibrant streets in the city, Temple Street, and see how the locals unwind.

Kick off your tour at Jordan station to see the traditional pawn shop and street market. Check out Temple Street and one of the oldest herbal tea shops to try a traditional herbal tea. I can tell you all about the long tradition and why it's famous for its many health benefits.

Get ready for the most special part of the trip: bird fortune telling! I will take you to a fortune teller that I know and trust and will explain this old tradition. He is often visited by my grandmother, my mother, myself and my friends!

How it works: The fortune teller has 3 little birds to assist him, you need to pick a bird to answer your question and, with the explanation of the fortune telling master, you will know your luck! Don't worry; I will translate everything for you.

Some people may think Temple Street is a tourist place, but you will experience it in a very local way. I will show you the backstreets, local street karaoke area where old people gather to sing - it is charming and entertaining. Then we end it with a delicious local dessert.

This tour includes herbal tea tasting and one question of fortune telling and three types of local desserts.
The duration may change depending on the number of people and number of questions you want to ask. But I can always customize this tour 100% to your wishes, just get in touch!

I made jewelry and travel to market in different countries. I love to meet people and show them around the city I raised, especially every places that I have experienced. Hong Kong is a such a busy city but there always easy to chill at the nature part of Hong Kong. Of course with amazing food also!"
