What you can expect

If you want to take a look at the cultural side of Hong Kong, I invite you to come with me to visit the marvelous Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery and to explore the authentic New Territories region, away from the urban jungle.

On this private tour, this is your chance to admire the 10, 000 handmade sculptures of Buddha, created by different monks from across the world. The temple was built in the mid 20th century and became an important spiritual place for the Buddhist community. Learn about its founder and history, Buddhism and their traditions. Once on the top, be amazed by the beautiful panoramic view over Hong Kong, nature, and New Territories.

To keep the cultural gems coming, explore the New Territories region and wander through the local neighborhood and surroundings to know how local people really live. Let's explore the backstreets of the area, admire the urban architecture and remaining colonial buildings. This area offers a real look into the daily realities of Hong Kongians and with a visit to the Public Housing and my insights, you'll have a better understanding of how the city works.

Feeling hungry? Let's end our tour at a special local noodle shop with the best beef dishes in town! This place is beloved by the locals for its charming atmosphere and delicious food of course!

This tour is 100% personalized around your preferences and wishes. Let me know how I can make your Hong Kong experience even more special.

I studied the Han Culture and have kept my passion with culture and history study. Growing up from a chefs family I had been a food columnist for more than six years. I love to discover stories and I had been digging through those hole-in-the-wall eateries in and around this city. In my free time I like hiking or biking in the serenic country sides. If you’re interested, I have tons of insider stories of local food industry. I’d also share with you the culture and history of Hong Kong - I’m specialised in the knowledge of Taoism and Buddhism temples as well as the southern Chinese folklore religion."
