Tours by local guides Canny Lau and Shermone Yan
Sample some of Hong Kong’s favorite delicacies with a guide who will bring you to the best spots, help you order and explain the local food culture. We’ve put together a route that will allow you to taste a variety of great dishes without getting too full.
Start the day the way the locals do, with a cup of hot milk tea at a typical Hong Kong café. Then explore a nearby wet market to see where Hong Kong families shop.
Next, enjoy a delicious bowl of steaming wonton noodle soup – it’s comfort food for the Hong Kong soul. Then stroll to another classic Hong Kong restaurant for a plate of succulent roast duck, goose or pork over a plate of rice.
Take a break from eating with a tour of the Soho area, Man Mo Temple and the Sheung Wan district, home to some fascinating dried seafood and Chinese herbal medicine stores.
After exploring this side of Hong Kong, you’ll sit down for a classic lunch of dim sum at a local’s favorite restaurant.
Finally, explore the world of Chinese tea culture with a tea tasting at a local tea shop.
This tour takes about six hours and can be completed by anyone in reasonable shape.
